Where should a cyclist live in Austin?

I'm moving back to Austin, but I'm not sure where to live. Partner will be working downtown and I'll be working in the campus area. However, since I've been gone I've really gotten into cycling and that weighs heavily upon the decision.

Most days I do training rides between one and three hours on my road bike, and I would like to find a rental of some sort where that's really easy to do. Ideally there would be nice quiet and smooth roads with a few hills but not too many, no major streets or intersections I'd have to get through, and a tolerable number of stoplights and stop signs. At the same time, I'd like the commute to work for both of us to be fairly reasonable. Any suggestions that would help me focus my search would be welcome.
