Frequently asked questions

What is the Austin Bar Bike?


Austin Bar Bike is a 15 passenger pedal-powered, electrically assisted, pub crawling machine. We ride around downtown Austin, we'll stop at 2-3 bars along the way for 20 minutes each. But you're the boss, so just let the driver know what makes you happy and they will take care of you. Very instagramable experience. The driver usually suggests a few cool picture opportunties.
