Bicycle parking at ACL revivals that of many European cities.

Transportation to ACL is probably one of the hardest things to coordinate. If you’re walking, you have to take a bus.  If you drive, you have to park in the neighborhood or take a shuttle.  Both are fine on the way in, but at the end of the night, traffic getting out and lines for shuttles and buses are a fuster cuff.  On a bicycle, however, you can just hop on and bypass lines and traffic.

Thanks to Lance Armstrong and the masses of people in Austin in support of alternative transportation, the city has a strong bicycle culture.  A lot of this community revolves around Lance’s shop, Mellow Johnny’s Bike Shop.  To highlight this, the shop has a stand by the bicycle parking at ACL Fest.  In the 2-minute video below, we talk to them about bicycle culture at ACL. You can also see some great shots of the MASSIVE bicycle parking racks!
