Free from the harassment and terror of autos, a ride on the bucolic trail is more likely to provide distraction in the form of black swans, nosy ducks, giggly babies in strollers, and panting pups. All of Austin gets here sooner or later, partaking of the treasure made even better by the water stations courtesy of Run Tex at the MoPac and First Street bridges.
