Riding the electric bike was better than my wife and I thought it would be. Service was fast and friendly. After a quick instructional class and a map, we were ready to go. The bikes are faster than you would think they would be and had no problems going up hills. The only issue is parking is very limited. We... More

Lots of fun paths and little detours. Great fun riding the electric bike. I used the throttle 95% of the time, but I had one friend pedal all the way and another go 50/50. Some of the paths get a little crowded with strollers, joggers, dog-walkers, other cyclists, so you need to be careful. I highly recommend.

My husband and I did the electric bike tour. Faith was our guide and we couldn't have gotten a better tour guide. This was the highlight of our trip to Austin. I would definitely recommend doing this. We took the Foodie tour and enjoyed the food and drinks and all the cool places Faith took us too. Great time!!!!!

We booked a private food/drink tour with 2 of the best guides EVER!! Faith and Diana where amazing. So personal and we got to see Austin through their eyes. The bikes are awesome! If you want to paddle, do so, if you need a little more and your tired turn the handle and off you go. Great for all, you... More

We had a great time on the Rocket Electric foody bicycle tour of Austin. The tour was awesome as well as the food. Our tour guide was the best, lots of energy and enthusiasm for her job and did it well. She even played a song on her guitar per our request for us upon return which was excellent. I... More

I rented an e-bike for 5 days for the SXSW. They were really nice and gave me a bike that was better than the one I rented. Two days in, the bike broke its pedal shaft. I called them and they brought another one, even better! The only thing though, is that they assumed that the charger was the same... More

Donna Lou was our tour guide and she was great. Very enthusiastic and she definitely loves her job. The bike route was perfect. I had never been on an electric bike before and I loved it. Nice to have as an option to catch up the group or for some assistance on the hills. Would have like to also tried... More

Our guide Donna Louise was perfect! She ensured we had everything we needed, personalised the tour to us, and was all round good fun. I hadn't been on a bike for over 10 years and she allowed me practice until I was confident enough to get going. Not only was she a very knowledgable guide, she was also a fabulous... More
