Ride with Us at SXSW 13


Gathered last year at Club Deville

The 7th annual Mobile Social SXSW is scheduled for 4 PM at Mellow Johnnys, March 9th. After a weekend of MoSos last year with Google+ and Tern, we’re back to MJs for a mellower ride in 12. We’ll meet up, ride, and return for beer, bbq, and music at the shop with the Chevy TweetHouse.

Please RSVP for a headcount to Facebook or Schemer. Need a bike? SXCycles is back with free bikes and rentals are available in town from shops. Also check Craiglist for locals renting their bikes.

Riding with us and Social Cycling Austin is free with no credentials required. To get into MellowJohhnys and the Chevy TweetHouse, you’ll need a SXSW badge or wristband. We’ll have a limited number of wristbands for ride attendees: first come, first served.
