Bikers. Something you instantly notice as you enter the Austin city limits. And not just a few here and there, but several!
Ever wish you could be one, just for a day? Maybe you don’t want to spend hundreds or thousands of dollars on a bike, but would like to get up close and personal with nature or just experience downtown Austin from a new perspective. Well, here’s your chance! Release your inner Armstrong by renting a bike from the Bicycle Sport Shop! The bikes start at $13 for 2 hours, $18 for 4 hours or $22 for 24 hours. However, there are several bikes to choose from and prices go up accordingly.
As if this isn’t already sounding awesome enough, the shop lets you borrow helmets for free and customizes your bike’s pedels to your shoes for free! But, if you are planning on a weekend ride you better book your reservation in advance because according to Rental Manager Scott Schroen, slots fill up fast. “For events, like SXSW this past week, we booked our maximum capacity of 130 bikes and our group rides fill up fast too.”
With this weekend’s weather looking good so far, you have no excuse not to get out there and go exploring! I know, I know, you can thank me later. 😉
