SafariCat,

There are NONE in the whole county. Austin is the closest.

Bastrop is only 30 miles away but at least 50 YEARS behind.

Bastrop is a small town (population 7856). Most small towns cannot support a bike shop.

Thanks all for the input and the laughs.

Just reaching out on behalf of a friend who has to visit the town later this month. I'll direct him to the shops in Austin.
