We’ll ride daily after we arrive in Austin. Follow us on Twitter for announcements about meet spots, routes, and times. Expect morning rides out of the city and evening rides to food trucks.

On Sunday, March 9th at 12:30 PM meet for the annual Mobile Social SXSW. We’ll ride from the space where the bike and tech meet in the Create tent to scenic locations around Austin. Then back for a Rapha reception with beer, apps, and marvelous talks from Jeremy Dunn and Pei Ketron about the photos taken during the ride from mobile photographers.

The ride is free and open to the public. The pace is social and all cyclists are welcome, any bike will work, there are no hills, and just fun. Here’s the route, more details. Meet on the lawn outside the Create Tent in The Long Center at 12:30. You’ll find us where the SYCONS DJs of the Sun are mixing music.
