Urban Assault Ride Austin

While we’re on the subject of this weekend’s events, don’t miss New Belgium’s Urban Assualt Ride if you’re in Austin, TX. From the UAR website:

The Urban Assault Ride is a truly unique cycling event…and quickly becoming one of the biggest in country! Here’s how it works: You and your teammate will set out on a city-wide quest for ‘checkpoints’ on your favorite two-wheeled steeds. At each checkpoint, you’ll drop your bikes and complete a funky/adventurous obstacle course, then remount your bikes and hit the streets for more.
The goal is to complete all the checkpoints in the shortest amount of time. You choose your own route and checkpoint order. This means that the most clever are often the victors. Of course, it may also help if you can pull a mean big-wheel powerslide and fly across an inflatable slip-n-slide ;)

    My husband and I did the Urban Assault Ride in Berkeley and had a fantastic time. Highly recommended.

    Learn from my mistake: bring extra sunscreen. :-)

    I don’t know, they may not need sunscreen in Texas; according to Elliott at “Austin on Two Wheels” they’re much tougher than us heat-sissies here in NorCal… LOL.
