Biking is a popular form of transportation in Austin; our city is small, so that makes biking from one place to another relatively easy and manageable. Even so, there are certain rules of the road that you need to be aware of to keep yourself and others safe.
If you’re planning on renting a bike for a day, a year, or even a couple of hours, there are a few things you should know first. Such as: What type of bike is best for you?, How do you make sure your bicycle is the right size?, What are the rules surrounding bike rentals (e.g. wearing a helmet, paying for a bike, returning it, etc.)?
