Beginning March 13 at 8:30 a.m., I will be following 13 fixed-gear cyclists from Dallas to Austin documenting their trip from a not-so-cyclist-friendly city (ahem-Dallas-ahem) to one of the most cyclist-friendly cities in the U.S. during SXSW.
Oh, wait… did I say fixed? Like, one gear, no coasting, FIXED?!
240+ miles. On fixed-gear bikes. In under 72 hours. Insane?
The countdown to glory begins. Follow them with me at www.SXSFixed.com and on twitter: @SXSFixed & @LaceofBase. Each stop/event will be updated on the site via our SXSFixed Google map with updates streaming from the road by mobile webcast. Get ready, Austin… here we come.
After 2 tattoos, 154 bananas, 2 blowouts, and 6 glorious days pedaling the hills of Austin, we are back. They FREAKIN’ made it with no major incident, and I was able to film AND livestream much of the action. Check out the site (SXSFixed.com) for the final run-down.
