Vacationing in Austin in March 3/21-28/10

I'll be vacationing in Austin,Tx(with bike) 3/21-28/10 and would like to ride a training ride each day I'm there and racing a crit if available. Anyone mind helping me out with a few things. I'm trying to kill two birds with one stone.. Vacation with the significant other and do a poor man's cycling camp.

#1. Is there a particular area in Austin that's best for find weekly training rides. Since I have yet to select at hotel. Closeness to training rides will be the deciding factor.

#2. Any notable races going on during the time I"m there.

#3. Is there a Austin cycling website geared towards racers.

Thanks.

Bicycle Sport Shop has a good calendar of events that should be a good starting point.

"Closeness to training rides" meaning that you won't have a way to transport your bike...or that you'd prefer not having to transport it daily for rides?

The reason I ask is that there are good training rides in every direction, depending on what you're looking for. Hills, flats, rollers...whatever you want. The only weekly crit I know is at a place called The Driveway...I think they're Tuesday nights but others will correct me if I'm wrong and add more detail.
