I've been in Austin for about 16 years, which makes me Methuselah compared to some. I did a bike tour of this familiar-to-me town anyway, and LOVED IT. I also brought my Dutch bf along, and he, too, LOVED IT. I was very intimidated by the scooters at first, because I have zero experience, but the practice ride in the parking lot, and very knowledgeable instructor made it a breeze! They look easy, and they're still easier than they look. If you want to have a blast, by all means, this is worth it! Even if you're a Methuselah (or a Dutch bf). It's a great way to learn the city, and have a killer time doing it! I will also mention that it was cold and drizzly when I went, and I still had that much fun.
