The Best Bike Route through

South Austin


Bruce Porter, Austin, Texas


This route goes between downtown Austin and Buda. Im particularly pleased with the part through south Austin, which is somewhat better than Congress Avenue, and much better than S. 1st St.


The southern end of this route connects to a nice cycling route to San Marcos, New Braunfels, and San Antonio. Also, the northern end connects to a great route to Bastrop.


If youre on Adventure Cyclings Southern Tier, this route through South Austin is an alternative to Section 4, Map A. If you also use the connecting routes mentioned above, youll have a very nice alternative to both Maps A and B of Section 4 of the Southern Tier.


Cue Sheets:

Southbound: Downtown Austin to way south Austin and beyond


Northbound: from points south to downtown Austin



Austin is a wonderful town. Adventure Cycling has several recommendations of what to do in Austin, but the recommendations are outdated. Heres what Id recommend.
