We guide tours with our electric bikes on almost every day of the week and we've taken thousands of people out on our ebikes. When you book one of our Public tours, you'll have fun riding with other folks while enjoying as much Austin as we can show you in one tour.
To check availability, click the BOOK button then select the date you'd like to tour. Then choose the number of riders that are in your group. If we have availability, you will be promoted to fill in your details and payment information. (Pro tip: It is faster for you to do this quick check vs. emailing us or calling the shop.)
It might sound silly, but yes, you need to know how to ride a bike (with confidence) to be on one of our tours. Please note that there are age requirements; Lady Bird Lake tours are 16+, Foodie Tours are 21+. If you have minors that would like to join you on a Foodie Tour, you can book a Private Foodie Tour so that we don't have to compromise the tour experience of our other guests.
Pretty Please: IF you are 5 foot 4 or under, PLEASE note your need for a smaller ebike within the Notes field on the reservation form.
Please note: Just like a hotel room or airline ticket, rentals on high demand days such as Saturdays and holiday weekends may be slightly higher than weekdays or non-peak days. For our Cancellation Policy, scroll to the bottom of this page. If you book a rental or tour, the Cancellation Policy will also be in your reservation email.
OK, So You've Changed Your Plans: We're not trying to be meanies, but you MUST contact the shop within 48 Hours BEFORE the scheduled day of your ride to cancel and receive a full refund. If you don't call or write and decide to cancel your rental/tour less than 48 hours before your rental/tour, we will not issue a refund. If you do not pick up your Day Rental prior to 2pm, we'll assume that you aren't coming and will release your ebike to someone else - and sorry, we're not going to refund you. We know Austin is fun, but don't stay out so late that you sleep through your reservation.
Dang It! The Weather is Not Playing Nicely: Our guides are always ready to ride, but if the forecast reflects a strong likelihood for thunderstorms, sleet, hail, zombies, snow, dust storms, hurricanes, or if it is below 45 degrees (F) or above 120(F) on the day of your scheduled ride, it will be up to us to cancel the tour and keep you safe - we will "rain check" your reservation to another day (subject to availability) OR provide you a full refund.
I Booked A Bike Rental/Tour But During the Test Ride, I Am Unstable and Unsafe While Riding: For your safety, the group’s safety, and the safety of our equipment, all participants MUST be able to confidently ride a bike. If a guest is not riding confidently enough to travel safely on Austin trails and streets, Rocket Electrics will prohibit that guest from riding and will not issue a refund.
