Us and BCycle (red city bikes)
Not all rentals are alike.
BCycle serves a purpose mostly to get from point A to point B. But too often we see people trying to ride BCycles not in the manner they were intended. The Greenbelt on a BCycle? ...Not a good idea.
Also, many people aren’t fully aware of the pricing policy. Yes, BCycle is $8 a day, which is a good rate if you get it back to a station every 30 minutes. After that, it’s $4 per half hour with maximum daily fees reaching $75. So if you want to go for a long ride or leave your bike locked up somewhere, BCycle is probably not the way to go.
If you’re just going from one spot downtown to another spot downtown, BCycle will get you there. Otherwise, give us a call.
We have a wide array of bikes to fit every type of riding. So whether you want a comfortable cruise around the lake, a 29er to tackle the trails, or something light to help you up all those Austin hills, we’ve got the bike for you.
Plus, we offer maps, local expertise, roadside assistance during our business hours and pickup/delivery available for most full day rentals
