Austin is a place you must see for yourself. Even if it's just for a mere 24 hours before or after your Texas Hill Country Biking trip, there's so much to experience... First there are the people. Texans are Friendly (with a capital F). Their Southern drawl and the way they say "Ma'am" had me eating out of their hands. Then the gentle evening breezes warmed my cold Canadian bones and the Southern breakfasts and bountiful Tex-Mex food filled my belly.
