We are doing our best to safely serve Austin's cycling community. We were planning to re-open our showroom in July, but then the Delta Variant sent cases skyrocketing, so we will wait until a safer time to re-open.
We launched this website in May 2020 to give you a way to shop from the safety & comfort of your home or phone, with contact-less storefront pickup, or home delivery (fees apply). Please call us for help with any purchases. We currently offer limited bike service by appointment only.

Our customers are, both figuratively & literally, our family. We have high-risk folks in our family, and we’re sure lots of y’all do too. That’s why we’re proceeding with an abundance of caution at BIKEALOT.
As an essential business, we are doing our best to serve our cycling community as safely as possible. We updated our website and added online shopping to help our customers shop from the safety and comfort of home. We are grateful for your support so we can continue to keep Austin rolling safely.
With heavy hearts, we decided on 3/14/20 to close our showroom to the public for the duration of the crisis because we want to avoid inadvertently spreading Covid 19. Our shop is small, so it’s very hard to keep 6’ distance with 2 or 3 people inside. We also want to ensure our merchandise is not accidentally contaminated by shoppers handling items, and we figure it would be awkward to follow folks around with Lysol. But seriously, we really look forward to opening our store to the public again, when it's safe to do so.
We have several new policies and protocols for further prevention. We now thoroughly wash all bikes before service, and we regularly sanitize our tools to prevent spreading germs from bike to bike. We regularly sanitize our delivery table, and frequently touched surfaces inside the shop. We do our best to answer customer questions by phone or email, holding in person interactions to a minimum. Even when fulfilling contact-less deliveries outside, MASKS are REQUIRED at BIKEALOT.
We do our best to stay informed of the facts, and follow the advice of public health agencies. We will continue to update our policies and protocols to implement and innovate best practices to help prevent spreading this dangerous virus.
