Frequently Asked Questions
Where does this tour go?
Depending on the tour you choose, it hits different Austin points of interest. Some may include, Castle Hill graffiti park, Willie Nelson statue, Stevie Ray Vaughan statues, University of Texas, famous Austin murals, the famous Pfluger bridge, congress, 6th street and many more. Our tours tend to cover more distance than any other Segway, Bicycle or Electric Bicycle tour in Austin.
How long is the tour?
Morning and afternoon rides are around 2 hours with a 15 minute orientation. Each tour is a bit different based on party size and skill level. We also offer specialized tours ( mid day lunch, sunset, bat, pool, etc) as well as private events. These specialized tours can all have different lengths and costs.
Can my kids come?
Our tours are absolutely a blast with kids. Unlike motorcycles which legally prevent a parent from riding a small child on the front/rear - electric bikes do not. So you may ride a child in front or in back. They tend to love it! Drivers need to be at least 16. Passengers need to be at least 48 inches tall and combined weight of the passengers should not exceed 300 pounds per bike.
Do I need a license for this?
Nope! No license needed. These electric minibikes are a motorized vehicle, not a motor vehicle. Despite the fat tires and lack of pedals - In Texas, we are treated like an electric bike. This means we ride in bike lanes / side walks / take a lane - in that order.
Can we do a private party?
Absolutely. We generally reserve Monday through Wednesday for private events, but can normally accommodate anything. Just give us a call. (512)-893-6833 ext 102
We've done everything from parties, food tours, bat tours, birthday parties, event transportation and even wedding photography props. Nothing is to weird for Austin, or us.
What do I need to bring?
Its a fun, fast moving outdoor activity. So comfortable clothes, sunscreen and sunglasses are the most common items to bring. We prefer closed toes shows, though its not a requirement. We provide helmets of all sizes and you will be required to wear one. Many patrons like to tip their road captain, so some cash on hand may be useful. Each bike has a large basket under the seat to carry some gear.
Its triple digits! Is it too hot to go?
Not at all. That's why we don't have pedals. Why pedal when you can cruise? Our Road Captains plan routes that keep you moving and stop in the shade. Remember - the Road Captains do three tours a day at times. If it were too hot they wouldn't make it 😉 They also make sure everyone is stocked with bottled water and often stop for snow cones or a cool down.
What is your cancellation policy?
24 hours before the tour you can cancel free of charge. Closer than 24 hours we cannot provide a refund - but will gladly reschedule you.
What about rain?
Rain is fun! Lighting is not. That being said - your Road Captain will contact you 24 hours before your ride and if weather issues are possible - he will discuss the options. These fat tired monster tires love the rain and it makes for a fun and memorable time. However - if the Road Captain determines its unsafe - we will gladly reschedule your group.
Can I bring my dog?
Although we love the pet friendliness of dogs in Austin. Our tours is not dog-compatible at this time. If you take the tour and have ideas on how we can make the tour pet friendly - we would love to hear it.
What is the weight capacity?
Great question. The total combined weight is 300 pounds per vehicle. This can be an individual or the combined weight of two people.
Where does this tour start from?
The tour departs and returns from the Global Your Biker Gang Clubhouse (GYBGCH) - its located downtown in the heart of Austin a few blocks West of WholeFoods.
