Electric Bikes

Electric bikes are an often overlooked  great alternative to getting around cities like Austin, especially during large events when parking can be limited and traffic jams are common.  There are outfits in Austin that rent electric bikes by the day just like renting a car.  Electric bikes can go 20-30 miles on a charge and can be ridden anywhere a normal bicycle can.  They are great fun and a great way to take in the sites and get around.  There are a couple shops that rent electric bikes near downtown and some will even deliver the bikes right to where you are staying.
