$80 Austin Bike Share

Bike Hugger reports from SXSW in Austin and runs into Susan Veal at a liquor store in the sleazy part of town.

Susan Veal Austin TX Bike Share

Writes Byron of this photo:

Every year Susan Veal buys a bike at Walmart like this for $80.00 plus $15.00 for the basket. Rides it for 2 weeks and leaves it behind with a note on it that says, “free.”

Pay it forward, all.

    sleazy part of town…? a lot of the newer and “hip” places in austin are rapidly gentrifying east austin. i’m guessing that’s where this is since i can see the highway in the background.

    That’s how Byron described it anyway. I didn’t know Austin had any truly sleazy areas, but the last time I was there I may have been one of the sleazes.
