DO I NEED A LOCK?
For rentals, yes. We require, and provide, all renters to take a lock and to lock the bike whenever out of your sight, even for a few moments. You never know when you’re going to want to stop and grab a drink or snack. Lock the frame and a wheel if you can, but always the frame. Please NEVER leave the bike locked outside overnight. If you can’t sneak it into your room, most hotels will have a valet closet or storeroom where you can check the bike.
DO YOU HAVE BICYCLE MAPS -
We recommend using the “Bicycle” layer in Google Maps. You can also find maps here -
WHAT HAPPENS IF SOMETHING GETS BROKEN OR STOLEN?
If you get a flat, or the bike or lock breaks, we will come rescue you. Broken or missing parts from the bike will be assessed when you return your bike. We may, at our discretion, charge for the damaged or stolen items like bike, parts, lights, locks, or helmets. If you lose your key and are stranded there is a $30 rescue fee/ $50 during ACL/SXSW, which includes the cost of the key. Thanks for your awareness and cooperation. Have fun, but take care of business, drink water, and eat tacos.
