About the East Riverside

July 14, 2011 – 2 Minute Read

Directly southeast of downtown Austin, the East Riverside neighborhood is home to creative types and young professionals. Just East of I-35 on the south shore of Lady Bird Lake, this lively area is known for an inclusive mix of neighborhood amenities. Fans of live music will appreciate the easy parking at Emo’s, a music venue boasting a state-of-the-art sound system.

Outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy easy access to Austin’s beloved Hike-and-Bike Trail’s via it’s newest segment, the scenic Boardwalk Trail, where 7,250 feet of pier-and-beam boardwalk extend over Lady Bird Lake, or continue east to walk, bike, run a complete loop around the lake. Brimming with new developments next door to older, established structures, East Riverside retains a classic Austin feel while bursting with the lively energy of change.

I know Austin like the back of my hand. Obviously. But here’s what’s different about touring Austin with Rocket Electrics: Food. Drinks. Fun. Pedal or twist your wrist for some electric assistance while riding your ebike! When I host guests here in Austin, there’s nothing like eating and drinking our way through the city on an electric bike. Tip: Tours are a great way to see parts of Austin that you may not have explored and if you are looking to get around during SXSW, ACL, or your commute to downtown, an ebike is the only zero traffic, no parking issues way to go!
