    Hottest Day of the Year Ride

    So what if it's 100 degrees outside? Biking around town is still an option, or at least that's what the host, Bike Austin, claims. It's certainly true if you're pedaling from swimming hole to swimming hole. Water and food stops take place along the way, with the ride ending with a pizza party at the ABGB (1305 W. Oltorf).
    Sat., Aug. 17, 2-5pm. Free.  
    Bicycle Sport Shop, 517 S. Lamar
