"Best experience!!!"

Myself and 9 of my closest friends rented bikes for my Bachelorette to cycle around and take photos at different murals! The staff was amazing! So friendly and helpful. Some of my friends were not very comfortable riding bikes and they took extra time to ensure everyone's safety and comfortability. I was on the tandem bike and had a blast! Great company, absolutely 100% recommended!!! We also put in a recommendation for a name for the tandem bike. The Tony Express. Hopefully that sticks lol!

Awesome way to experience Austin! We called to request a tour for the four of us. We were interested in seeing public Art and experiencing local drinks downtown and they created a custom tour for our group (which is going to become a regular offering). Our bikes were in awesome condition, shoutout to Sara for getting us set up and fitted! Trey, our guide, was knowledgeable and fun to interact with. All in all totally recommend this experience to anyone looking to get a unique view of Austin!

We rented 2 bikes from Austin Bike Rental and booked it online. The process was very simple and the location was only 1 block from our hotel and 2 blocks from the bike trail down by the river. The people there were very friendly and professional and the bikes were in excellent condition. An excellent value! We highly recommend this company!

We were visiting from Florida and wanted a fun outdoor activity. We're not really into tours, we prefer to explore on our own. The people at Austin Bike Tours & Rentals were competent and pleasant to deal with. Their bikes are well-maintained, they have a wide variety to select from. Prices are reasonable. We had a great time!
