Today is the coldest day in Austin since last winter-currently 53 degrees and it's been raining since this morning. This weekend was in the 80's and tomorrow is supposed to be 70.

There was a section fenced off with "art bikes" that you could ride-crazy ones-tires made of shoes and more. Here are the pictures:
