“Ride On Rocket E!!”
Reviewed December 13, 2013

Nicole (and John) were just super at getting us started on e-biking, explaining things and guiding us on good trails! We have had responsive and thoughtful service every time we have been to Rocket Electrics. We intend to continue to use Rocket E for our e-biking needs going forward. Strongly recommend!

As for electric biking in general, it's just a super way to get exercise, enjoy the outdoors and have some fun, particularly given Austin's great trails around Town Lake and environs. For those interested, check out the new Meet Up - Austin Electric Biking!

“So much fun!”
Reviewed December 12, 2013

It was my friend's Birthday and three of us went to Austin. We probably picked the coldest weekend, but we came across Rocket Electrics Tours and thought it would be fun. It was Beyond Fun!!! Elisha was AMAZING. She was very informative and funny; she thoroughly enjoys what she does. I've already told stories about the Moon Light Towers... We are definitely going back (especially) when it gets warmer to do the tour again. LOVED the electric bikes. I am now in the market for one. You can pedal when you want or give your self a little boost. I highly recommend this tour. I've done Bike Tours in London and Paris...and think bike tours are the best way to see and learn about a city you've never been to before.

“Best way to see Austin”
Reviewed December 3, 2013

We had a real blast being able to zip around several different neighborhoods and downtown. We stopped at several places for "refreshments" and were able to enjoy sightseeing up close. We didn't have to worry about parking and could get around a lot easier on the bikes. There were 6 of us and everyone could pedal as much or little as they wanted and we all stayed together. Great time! We'll do this again!
