Tuesdays in July at 6 PM
On Tuesday nights throughout the summer and fall, cyclists will have the opportunity to clip in and navigate COTA’s 3.4-mile circuit at Bike Night powered by Ascension Seton. The weekly event lets riders cruise COTA’s famed stars and stripes in a socially-distant and stress-free environment without the worry of city traffic while offering fantastic sunset views of the COTA tower and Austin skyline. After the ride concludes, cyclists can replenish and recharge with a socially distant tailgate with fellow riders in our Paddock parking lot!
Please view the event details below to see changes due to COVID-19. Online registration only. Bike rentals are no longer available. Bring your own water. Bottled water available for purchase.
Bike Night will happen on every Tuesday beginning June 2nd! There will be no Bike Nights in August.
