University of Texas

UT Austin is the flagship of the Texas state university system. With 50,000 under-graduate and graduate students, it is the 5th largest university in the US. The large campus is right smack downtown only a quarter mile from the state capitol.

After unpacking and assembling our bikes, we took a tour of the campus, state capitol and downtown area.
