The turnout was really stupendous, and even more so the number of bikes. Too bad this isn't the scene every weekend, but perhaps it will encourage people to bike places more often. In any case, it shows that Austinites are catching on to the whole, "Hey if I take my bike I won't have to wait in traffic!"
There were lots of beautiful bikes there. I saw the prettiest yellow and cream cruiser that belonged to this lady, I was very jealous. I also saw an Electra Hawaiian style bikeseat that I might get once I get a real job. This first picture also makes me realize I need to make friends that also ride bikes. It can get lonely in the bike lane.

|3 kinds of cyclists- Cycle Mama, Road Racer, and oh I don't know...Joe Schmo?|
|I could not believe it. I had never seen so many bikes at once in Austin.|
|Pale legs get some sun.|
|Dapper chap, he had on some trousers and a hat.|
|Again, something I had never seen in Austin. Where are all these people? They should bring these out more often.|
|You can't really tell, but beyond that mass of people traffic was terrible. There is a bike lane on Barton Springs leading into the park, so bikes were the better option for time in this case.|
