We Came, We Rode, We Hugged

With a few days of recovery, time to wrap up our MoSo SXSW 09 and let’s start with thanks to our partners, props to our friends at SXSW, and a quick recap below.

Urban Ride

150 cyclists of all kinds biking around Austin.



We counted between 600 and 800 at the BBQ. We blew through 3 kegs and food in a hour (more kegs, more food next year!).


And the Winner is

Patrick won the Madsen and was thrilled. Also see the winner of the Gary Fisher Simple City.


After Party

A quite, mellow After Party at Mellow Johnnys with an urban fashion show. moso_sxsw_afterparty.jpg

As the crowd danced, the shirts came off, and they partied into the night. Very interesting contrast to see a moshpit grinding below Lance’s one-of bike.

Next Year

Thank you Austin and SXSW. See you next year.
