Downtown Culture Cruise in Austin this Saturday, June 5

Austin on Two Wheels‘ Summer Social Ride Series (http://livingontwowheels.org/index.html) kicks off this Saturday with the Downtown Culture Cruise, a ride to view some cool downtown properties and discover some great local businesses. If you missed our Spring Series or are just wanting to see our town by bike and sample what downtown living has to offer, come join us on an all inclusive, full service ride. Register and just show up with a bike (or reserve a rental), and we’ll do the rest to show you a good time. PLUS we’ll be drawing from ride participants at the end of the series to give away an Electra Amsterdam Royal 8 to one lucky Austinite!
