Festival Season Has Returned

September 28, 2015

Are you ready to experience Austin’s vibrant music scene and the flurry of upcoming music festivals? There are show schedules to review, friends to coordinate with, and of course figuring out how to get around easily and in style. Don’t ruin the good time by getting stuck in traffic and dealing with parking nightmares. Skip the car and make the most of your festival experience by going by bike.

We can make it easy for you, with everything you need to navigate the Live Music Capital of the World on two wheels. Whether it’s a bike from our rental department, accessories to make your ride enjoyable and safe, or the right bike for an easy, casual ride, we can help.

Festival season is here. And you can gather the essentials at Bicycle Sport Shop.

Stay hydrated throughout the show with Camelbak’s Hydrobak ($49.99). It’s their most minimalist pack, perfect for ease of use. And with a 1.5 liter reservoir it holds plenty of your favorite drink despite the pack’s narrow profile.

Camelbak packs like the Hydrobak and insulated bottles like the Podium Ice keep your favorite drink cool and within reach.

If you already have a favorite festival bag, throw a couple of Camelbak’s insulated bottles in, like the Podium Ice ($24.99) and go. Keep your beverage cold and don’t worry about spills with Camelbak’s leak-proof bottle tops. And at ACL, you can stop by one of the CamelBak Filling Stations to top off on free freshly filtered water and help offset the number of disposable plastic water bottles. You can help track how many bottles are being saved with Camelbak on FacebookTwitter, and Instagram. #ditchdisposable

Riding to the show? Secure your bike with Kryptonite’s Series 2 Mini-7 lock ($41.99). The Series 2 Mini-7 sports all of the usual features you would expect from Kryptonite—a dust cover to protect the lock core, hardened steel shackle and cross bar for added protection against cutting, and more. It also comes in four new colors–pearly white, merlot, blue, and orange. So looking good at the bike rack has never been easier.

Stay safe riding home in the dark and have some fun with monkeylectric lights. The M204 ($25.99) and the M232 ($59.99) light sets let you add 8bit graphics to your bike’s wheels for some fun style that also keeps you visible.

Of course, you have to get to the show. Grab your Fairdale Daybird (on sale for $549.99) and get there with a smile of your face. The Daybird comes in a step-thru or traditional frame design and is meant as a neighborhood cruiser, built to be easy to use and a blast to ride. And it is! With a reliable 3-speed rear hub and a relaxed, upright riding position, you’ll roll up to the show already having had a great time. The 2015 models are available in red and blue and are on sale for $549.99, or check out the 2016 models arriving later this fall.

Perhaps the perfect bike to head to your favorite festival on. The Fairdale Daybird.
