There is light entertainment at Austin Subaru for our smaller riders and those who are relaxing.
Austin Subaru is the proud Title and Host Sponsor for Pedal for Puppies. Pedal for Puppies is an urban charity ride. All riders are encouraged to wear helmets, obey the rules of the road, and ride with caution. We have support vehicles, however, the streets will open for normal use. The support vehicles will not be stopping traffic. Bicycles are required to stop at stop signs and red lights and obey all other rules of the road. Cyclists should also use arm turn signals and ride no more than 2 abreast in the right lane. Austin Pets Alive! (APA!) is a 501(c) 3 (nonprofit) organization that promotes and provides the resources, education and programs needed to eliminate the killing of companion animals.
