What you'll do

This is a new experience created July 2019 for the cool of the evening. We traverse the golden and blue hours of sunlight to star/moonlight through sunset, twilight and dusk. Cycling through time, we see the light as it fades into dark thus experiencing Austin's transition from day to night. We are a part of the local scene celebrating the cooler evening time.

We cycle at the water's edge to the east to see the sky begin to change and perhaps see the moon rise. Returning west, the city is aglow in the light of the golden hour. The skyline has a golden look which turns to blue as the light fades. Riding to where we can see the sun setting over the hill country skyline, we pause to admire the colors and enjoy the locals playing in Town Lake.

As our time together comes to a close, natural landscapes with the possibility of the glow from the moon, highlights the night life of Austin.

Then back into the edge of the city for the night views and to where we load up your bikes to return to the bike shop.

A really-long-time Austinite, I reconnected with the joy and freedom of being on a bike. With 15 years of cycling in the city and the countryside, seeing the city from this immersive perspective gives insight into the hidden parts of Austin and the changing character and characters in the city. I want everyone to experience the joy of riding a bike and seeing the Austin we locals love, not just the one you read about in the articles touting the capital. Come be in our city with me and let's ride.

Where you'll be

Traveling close to the water, parks, and then moving into the night, we visit the “swimming hole” where locals howl at the moon…the full moon especially calls for howling. From there, we travel to a part of the park that is secluded and while in the city, it has the feel of countryside. Then back through an entertainment district for a different type of night life and then to a 50+ year old park with hill-top trees then back to the city.

This was a once in a life time experience. Deaton was a fantastic host. She personalized our ride and helped us experience views and events that we would never have seen or done without her guidance!

Wonderful time. Got to ride through some area I might not have found. Really enjoyed riding though UT campus to see the state capitol at sunset. She made us really great granola bars :)

Wow! This experience was amazing!! Deaton herself is a true joy to spend time with, yet her knowledge of the city and beyond is superb as well. She tailored the tour around me. I was the only person signed up, but she said she loves doing these tours and not for the money factor. I truly believe her! She told amazing stories of the history, took me to different parts of the city, and even brought me an incredible homemade granola bar. At the end she gave me a water bottle and had a cool washcloth soaked in rosemary water to wipe off the sweatiness with. This lady knows her stuff and is unforgettable! 💜😎👍

This was a great tour for anyone seeking to feel immersed in the city's culture while also seeing a plethora of sights one wouldn't know to look for as a tourist. Deaton was very kind and considerate to our wishes and her personal knowledge of the city's sights was fantastic!
