Great way to burn off all the great food we ate in Austin! We rented bikes from Rocket's and did the 10 mike bike ride around the lake. We were super tired after but so worth it! Great scenery and great exercise! Rocket's will also give bike tours as well if you don't want to venture out on your own.... More

The food was terrific. I had never had Texas BBQ, I don't like bbq because it's just sweet sauces over tasteless meat, a mess. But the smokes dry rub WOW. Then the food trailers offer gourmet goodies out of a small trailer! Little hole in the wall bars with hamburgers you will be dreaming about long after you get home.... More

The electric bikes were a great way to explore the Lady Bird Lake Hike-and-Bike Trail. Christain at Rocket Electric got us totally set up and on our way quickly and easily.

My wife and I did the lake tour with Faith and had a blast. It is a beautiful area, with paved and unpaved trails, hills, and lots of things to see. The bikes worked great, and allow you to pedal if you want some exercise. This experience was recommended to us by our friends, and I will recommend it to... More

My husband and I are "60 somethings" and we wanted a relatively easy way to cycle ourselves around Austin. What a polite, thoughtful staff, and what a great location to start our tour. Electric bikes let us go wherever are young hearts wanted to go. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!!

This is a regular stop for me when guests are in town. A delightful and delicious way to experience Austin. A special shout out to Louie, our guide. Attentive, funny, safety conscious, good looking and a great South African accent! Do this. It will be the best part of your Austin experience.
