Greetings from Austin!

Date posted: 4/22/2014

“Greetings from Austin”… not only a cool, vintage postcard look for a well-known mural in South Austin, but a great way to spread the word about the Hill Country BMW Riders Club… AND take a little time to enjoy its fabulous home city.

The First Annual HCBMW Austin Urbane Assault ride showcased some of Austin’s interesting sights, from the wonderful - Florence’s wildly decorated Comfort Yard in East Austin, so named because Flo provides safe, free after-school care and comfort to local children -  to Willie’s statue in front of the Austin City Limits auditorium – only weird to the unenlightened!

In between there were beautiful views of downtown and local lakes from several vantage points, anything goes Graffitti Park (for those who didn’t lose their way), a timely waterside coffee stop (what’s a “café ride” for, after all!), an assault up Mount Bonnell, and finally a tour through the beautiful and remote (but in a near-urban way!) Emma Long Park.  There was also plenty of time for easy riding, other Austin attractions, and visiting.

Those who missed out on this unique ride will have to anticipate… and await… the Second Annual Urbane Assault!
