SXCycles: Bike Share at SXSW 2012

SXSW announced their Bike Share project today. Making bikes available to attendees has been talked about since our first Mobile Social over 5 years ago and Tern Bicycles is making it happen in 12.

SXSW presents SXcycles, a bike share program for platinum, gold, interactive, and film registrants. This service will be available to registrants Friday, March 9th – Tuesday, March 13th from 9:00am until 2:00am and is open for sponsorship.

Of course we’re there again with Built and the Mobile Social. I’m speaking too.

Link D8

The bikes are located at 513 East Cesar Chavez Street, directly across from the Austin Convention Center and registrants can pick up a folding Link D8 bicycle for daily use with helmet, lights, locks and basket without preregistering, as long as supplies last.

More Rides, More Fun in 12

sharing At SXSW I’ve talked about making yourself more interesting, done epic shit, and how we work on the web. Also ridden around with thousands of people and brought counter programming with Built. This year, even more rides and fun are being planned. The Bike Share is part of that hotness.

See you there.


I posted a bit too earlier on the SXSW BIke Share and they’re still working out the details. The link to their announcement is down and removed it here. It’s still on and I’ll repost when they get the details worked out.
