Austin Water Bikes fulfills amphibious fantasies with waterborne tours on hybrid bicycle-kayaks called hydrobikes that can glide along liquid surfaces at speeds of up to 7 mph. From atop a bicycle-seat perch, riders of all ages can pedal up and down Lady Bird Lake, as they take in the sights of the Austin skyline and the Congress Street Bridge while engaging in casual exercise. The hydrobike is entirely safe and almost impossible to capsize due to its kayak-catamaran design and unflinching optimism. Life vests are optional, as are other life-enhancing supplies such as sunscreen and bathing suits.

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.

Customer Reviews

Worth renting longer than an hour

Great experience to take in all of Lake Austin. 1 hour is the perfect amount of time and good workout also.
Jessica E. · March 25, 2016
Great way to see downtown Austin Get some exercise and enjoy the lake views Very owner friendly and easily operated They don't turn on a dime, and most water crafts don't, so some navigation savvy is a plus Totally a great time for me I'll be back When you're finished local eateries are all around in walking distance Free parking just to the west in park if you time it right
