Slightly OT - Crossing the River by Bike In Austin, TX (Livestrong Challenge)

I'm going to be doing the Austin Livestrong Challenge ride in October. Since I'm from out of town, I'll be staying at a motel, yet to be determined. The ride start is on West Riverside Drive, south of whatever river it is that flows through Austin. Most of the motels recommended by the website are north of that river. Since parking will probably be nonexistent at the event site, I'd like to just ride the bike to the start point. Are the roads that cross the river legally and feasibly crossed by bike, or do I need to find a room south of the river?

Recommendations for a good, cheap motel close to the event site will be appreciated!

Thanks!
