I am going to be attending a convention in Austin in August. (It'll be cool by then, right?) The convention hotel is the Hilton Austin at 500 E. 4th Street.
I'll be driving to Austin and I'm thinking of taking a bike to ride while I'm there.
Is there any chance I can ride directly from the hotel without risking immediate death?
Since I'll have a car I guess I can drive someplace and ride and that I can figure out -- though I'd appreciate any suggestions -- but I am curious about riding in what seems to be a downtown location.
And if anyone has any idea how a Hilton will take to a sweaty, tubby guy walking through pushing a bike I'd be curious to hear about that, too.
Thanks for any suggestions.
