Bicycling Magazine has ranked Austin, TX at #13 on the list of America’s Top 50 Bike-Friendly Cities. With a population of nearly 800,000, Austin was recognized for adding 35 miles of bike lanes and paths in 2011, including Lance Armstrong Bikeway. The 7-time Tour de France champion and local native has become the cornerstone of the cycling scene in Austin. And if that isn’t enough, be sure to check out the Austin Bike Zoo.
Well done, Austin. Well done!

We were surfing the waves of the Internet recently and came across a great article by a local Austin blogger. And since we’re in Austin and share the same streets we thought we’d share her post with you all.
Must Love Homeless People is an excellent read by Traci Lynn, author of the blog Beauty For Ashes. She is essentially putting out an ad for herself with only one requirement. You must love homeless people. She reasons that if you genuinely love homeless people, then everything else about you should check out as well.
This may be a risky take on life for some, but if you think about it, can you really think of any exceptions beyond that general rule? We can’t. Be sure to check out Traci’s blog or follow her on Twitter.
Thanks for sharing, Traci.
