Suburban Assault

SXSFixed Number 2

leave a comment »

They’re doing it again. A team of really devoted, cycling enthusiasts are riding from Dallas to Austin for the South By Southwest Festival – all on fixed gear bikes. This started at last year’s SXSW, just to see if it could be done. Since then, the group made another trip to Austin for the ACL (they called their ride ACHell) event in October.

For this year’s SXSW, 13 fixed gear riders will heading out on Sunday to make that journey again. Check out their blog at or follow them on Twitter @sxsfixed. They are also having a SXSFixed Send Off Party tomorrow night from 8-10 at the Texas Theater. Part of the proceeds will go to support the riders.

We wish them a safe ride with lots of tailwind.
