Suburban Assault

Back From Austin

with one comment

Sorry that it’s been a while since my last post. I spent a good part of last weekend in Austin, Texas for the SXSW Interactive conference. As with everywhere I go, I’m always on the lookout for good bike scenery. Well, in Austin, that wasn’t much of a problem. Here are just a few, random sightings.

This first pic is from the SXSWi welcome party, hosted by Frog Design and Microsoft. They always have cool, interactive games to play. Just like in the movie TRON, this is a light bike game where users pedal for more speed and steer to block their opponent with their light trail. The crowd can watch the progress on the big screen.

Similar to what BikeDFW has with their bike smoothie machine, Google had stationary blender bikes.

The Austin Convention Center’s bike parking racks were always full.

As well as other racks around town.

Velolet and Tern offered demo loaner bikes for those lucky enough to be registered and early.


And of course, there were the bicycle pedicabs. These folks were everywhere, day and night, rain or shine.
