Select Local Merchants

  • Arrowhead Bicycles
    Arrowhead Bicycles is stationed only a few pedals away from the Southern Tier bicycle route that stretches from Florida to California, issuing customers a tantalizing challenge on their way out the door. The store itself is a hub that local and visiting cyclists swing into for new accessories, an impromptu tune-up, or simply an air-conditioned oasis where they can rest their feet, refill their water bottles, and hop online to check weather alerts and their favorite cycling blogs. Customers in the market for a new steed choose from models by industry mainstays such as Fuji and Scott, which were made for mountain, road, ramp, and spacious-condo travel. Meanwhile, the store’s stable of skilled technicians breathes new life into serviceable bikes with tune-ups, repairs, installations, and washes.

  • Bike World
    The expert cycle surgeons at Bike World—one of whom was voted best bike mechanic by the San Antonio Current in 2010—are masters at nursing sick duocycles back to an optimal state of road-worthiness. The thorough tune-up involves adjusting the front and rear derailleurs and brakes, truing the wheels, lubing the cables and chain, and wiping down the frame with fancy white gloves. Once your bike is as finely tuned as an instrument made of baseball cards and spokes, feel free to blaze down trails, tracks, and undiscovered shortcuts to celebrities' houses with a renewed sense of fearlessness.

  • Alamo Bike Rentals
    Alamo Bike Shop provides bike rentals, repairs, and parts to get tourists and locals alike cycling merrily through the streets of San Antonio. Rentals allow explorers to choose from an inventory of quality comfort cruisers and K2 mountain bikes. To keep cyclists' heads safe, Alamo Bike Shop outfits renters with helmets as well as locks to prevent cycles from sneaking off to go hunting for armadillos. Kids 10 years and older can also get a bike rental suited to their smaller size; Alamo Bike Shop requires all riders under 18 don helmets to protect developing noggins. Check the shop's site for a list of San Antonio attractions to explore on rented wheels, including the San Antonio Museum of Art, Brackenridge Park, or that great trash can on Elmira Street.

  • Austin Water Bikes
    Austin Water Bikes fulfills amphibious fantasies with a fleet of hybrid bicycle-kayaks, called water bikes, that glide along liquid surfaces at speeds of up to 7 miles per hour. These beginner-friendly vessels are safe and almost impossible to capsize due to their kayak-catamaran design and unflinching optimism, making them ideal for aquanauts of all ages. Set against the Austin skyline, Lady Bird Lake is the result of a beautification project led by former first lady Lady Bird Johnson. Its waters form a scenic setting for participants of water-bike rentals to watch bats take flight from the Congress Avenue Bridge or sunsets paint their colors across the sky. Additionally, Austin Water Bikes' staff uses the lake to lead senior spin classes, team-building workshops, and motivational seminars for freshwater mermen.

  • Cycle Camp USA
    Led by cofounders Dave Appel and Trey Steele, Cycle Camp USA's dedicated community helps riders navigate Austin's paved trails and push one another to extend personal limits and cover new ground. While working with students, Steele shares techniques that placed him among the top five in his age group at the North Carolina Triathlon Series. Avid racer and enthusiastic instructor Allison Atkinson also works with cyclists through CycleFit classes. The comprehensive training curriculum developed by Appel and his staff integrates a balance of core fitness pillars, such as heart rate, endurance, and maintaining speed when being pursued by coyotes on rocket skates. The community also encourages cyclists to test newfound abilities on destination trips, which pit packs of riders against picturesque ribbons of open road.

  • Barton Springs Bike Rental
    Barton Springs Bike Rental outfits fun seekers for bike rides across Austin's historic pathways and scenic landscapes. The shop dispenses single-speed beach cruisers to riders along with lights, baskets, locks, and access to roadside assistance in the event of a flat tire or never-ending parade of ducklings crossing the road. The crew's routes include the 90-minute Peace, Love & Zilker Tour—an easy jaunt past sights such as the Auditorium Shores, the old railroad bridge, and Barton Springs Pool—and the Congress Avenue Bat Tour, an evening trek to witness the world's largest colony of urban bats. Guides narrate the history and significance of local sights, giving guests plenty of opportunities to stop and snap pictures or refill their bicycle’s feedbag.
