Customers arrive at Barton Springs Bike Rental & Tours. They will then be fitted to a pedal assist electric bike, and go over the operations and safety.

Halfway through the tour we do stop for coffee/ beer/ snacks (not included) at a local Austin spot.

You wouldn’t think a 10-mile bike ride would be relaxing, but e-bikes make that a reality. Plus, Lucas is a natural tour leader. He is informative, articulate, and a passionate Austin local. He was by far, the best part of the ride. Just do it-you won’t regret it. And, as a bonus, we had plenty of water and rest stops in 95-degree weather that made it very cool and pleasant.
Had fun and would recommend it to others in the area! :D
We had an amazing experience today on our tour of Austin, our tour guide was nice, knowledgeable, and accommodating. I have nothing but nice things to say. Also the e-bikes were a blast to ride around town and on the trails. Very impressed with their professionalism and pro caution toward COVID. It was a birthday adventure I will always remember.
Jacob was an amazing tour guide, the electric bikes were great, three hours of fun and exercise on a Saturday morning, I fully recommend this experience!

My wife and I went on a Saturday e-bike tour with Barton Springs Bike Rental and had a fantastic experience. Our guide, Chip, was excellent - knowledgeable, informative, and with a good sense of humor. Bikes were in good shape and we had no problems with them at all. Would highly recommend Barton Springs Bike Rental - and Chip - for anyone looking for a fun way to explore Austin! Bill
The electric bikes were a fun way to explore Austin. Our guide, Chip, did a great job showing us Austin and providing fun facts and new places. Would recommend touring Austin this way
Chip was very knowledgeable and made the trip
We had a great time during the tour! Daniel was super friendly and knowledgeable! We'd highly recommend this tour!
That was a really great ride. I usually super slow in riding a bike and with the guide I felt more adventurous and whole tour was awesome! Thank you
Very extensive, comprehensive and informative bike tour lead by a very enthusiastic and knowledgeable tour guide. Tour guide was very considerate and safe in his leading me around the city. Will definitely recommend the electric bike ride to anyone who is looking to see the city and get a good workout
My daughter and I went on the three-hour "Let it Ride" E-bike tour with Daniel, who couldn't have provided us with a better tour. We saw every part of the city and heard great stories about each one. Daniel also provided us with tips for the rest of our stay. I highly recommend booking this tour for your first day. It includes the most iconic murals, shops along South Congress, Lady Bird Lake, the State Capitol, UT-Austin, downtown, and more. Bikes worked extremely well and made the ride that much more enjoyable. We loved this tour!
A good way to see the city

Santiago gave us a fantastic tour of Austin using electric assist bikes. A must have to cover the entire city. Thanks guys!
Today we took the electric bike tour. We're senior citizens and not regular bikers so we thought this sounded a little easier. Once we arrived at the bike shop it seemed a little more scary. My husband has some mobility issues but our tour guide Gabriel was absolutely wonderful !! He was so patient and helpful. He assured us we could do this and helped make us comfortable and confident. He customized the tour for us and we had the best time. We saw so much of the beautiful Ladybird Lake path and beautiful sites of Austin. Barton Springs Bike Rentals is lucky to have such a great tour guide and employee !
Gabe was our tour guide and he was great! He had a fun sense of humor and adjusted the schedule to meet some of our requests. Definitely recommend it!
Gabe was a great tour guide. Always pointing out things. The EBike was really cool too. While I do a fair amount of biking, the EBike was fun and allowed us to cover a LOT of ground without making the tour a physical challenge!
Did four tours using the ATX pass, including the segway and driving. The electric bike was the best way to see the city. Compared to the segway, you can travel faster, you are seated, it is narrower when dealing with barriers, and much for fun. Enjoyed learning of passage ways to get around. The crew was also very accommodating with customizing the tour, friendly, and knowledgable. Location south of downtown, with available parking, was also nice.
We had a great time on our tour. Gabriel showed us cool things we wouldn't know about Austin and coached us on ebikes. Ebikes were really fun!
