Are you curious about electric bikes and eager to take one for a ride? Join the Bicycle Sport Shop team for a ten-mile guided ride around Austin, with a mid-way rest stop for coffee on us. We’ll set you up on a new Specialized Turbo Como or Specialized Vado, incredibly comfortable and versatile pedal assist bikes that are sure to put a huge smile on your face. We’ve planned a fun route around Austin that will highlight some of the best bike facilities in the city and will climb a couple of seriously steep hills so you can fully experience the power of pedal assist. We’ll ride for about 2 hours.

These rides are shine only, so if inclement weather is threatening and we believe it necessary to cancel, we’ll notify you by 10 PM the night before the ride and refund your reservation.
