BikeTexas will offer these new services to event organizers in a combined effort to promote bicycling in Austin.

Robin Stallings, the Executive Director of BikeTexas, states, “With Spinlister’s support, we’ll be able to build a sustainable bike parking and bike valet program to serve the local community. These new services, along with the revenue expected from our rental fleet, will help fund our initiatives to create positive change in Austin for generations to come.
