    Visiting Austin for a day - need recommendation on trail and bike rental

    In town for business but gonna have most of the day Sunday free and would like to rent a bike and hit the trails. Is there a good rental shop that you can recommend that is located within riding distance of a good trail? I'd like intermediate and above trail recommendations.

    Thanks!

    If you want to have your A** handed to you, emma long / city park is where to do it.

    Otherwise most of Austin is intermediate and lower. Walnut or Barton would probably be my picks inside the city. If you have the ability to travel, pace bend on Lake Travis to the West has some of the best trails in the area. Reimers ranch in the same area has quite a few good trails as well.

    I'd definitely watch the weather though. It is saying 80% rain right now, but unless it's a massive week long storm system, it's usually impossible to tell until the day of, if it's actually going to be rainy.

    The greenbelt can also hand your ass to you, you just need to know where to look.
