I did a search but still came up light on information. I'm coming from Denver to live in Austin with my girlfriend/future wife. She is going back to school (hopefully) at UT. We are car free and have made a good go of it in Denver. We are curious if there is any areas of town to be aware of or stay out of? Good bike shops, how social are other riders, that sort of thing. We've been looking at condos on the south side (River Crossing and surrounding area). They look accessable to UT and downtown.
How is it going over the bridges into Downtown? Any of them better than the others? I'm in water treatment, so I'm curious what the employment situation looks like for blue collar professionals/trades people, also.
Any unsolicited advice for us?
Thanks in advance and hope to see a few of you in a couple of months!
