Urban Assault Ride: Austin

I wanted to pass along information on the Urban Assault Ride that is being put together in part by my social media buddy, @jonvick (Adventure Fit) and New Belgium Brewing…you know, the makers of Fat Tire Beer.

The Urban Assault Ride is a ride that most people do just for the fun of it, as it’s not a typical riding event.  Plus, look for the $10 entry discount that we’re offering our readers as well.

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.

After your pedal-powered adventure, your team will cross the finishline and enter a massive celebration of bikes and beer. The after party is just as much fun as the ride itself, thanks to the craziest raffle prize contest you’ll ever experience.

Discount on Entry:

Anyway, if you live in Austin and want to take part in this fun loving bikey event be sure to get your registration in right now….because it happens this Sunday.  Plus if you use the coupon code – LOVINGTHEBIKE10 - you’l get $10 off your entry fee.

There’s also a few more of these events taking part in other locations this Summer so see below for details on if it’s coming to your city.  For more information on the Urban Assault Ride you can visit www.urbanassaultride.com, or read the press release below.  Bikes, Beer, and Good Times…..sounds like a recipe for fun to me.

Annual Celebration of Beer, Bikes and Big Wheels
