Renting a bike
You’ll first need to rent a bike, and there are many places to do this in Austin. If you want to check out a local favorite head to Lance Armstrong’s Mellow Johnny’s. The bike shop works hard to promote local biking culture by offering bikes, gear and maintenance service, $1 showers to riders, regular group bike trips and education classes focusing on safety, route planning, traffic, maintenance and more. There’s also Barton Springs Bike Rental, Texas Cycle Werks and Bicycle Sport Shop, all of which can outfit you with everything you need.
