The Urban Assault Ride™ is the biggest bicycle scavenger hunt series in the nation! 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 finish line and enter a massive celebration of New Belgium beer, bikes, and big wheels. The after party is just as much fun as the ride itself, thanks to the craziest raffle prize contest you'll ever experience.
Pick a partner and we'll see you there!!
The Urban Assault Ride is an Austin summer cycling institution. What 1st started as a tiny sparkle in a local bike racer's eye has now turned into the biggest competitive cycling event in the Lone Star state. There's a reason why - every year the UAR gets bigger with fresh and funky obstacle courses and a massive celebration of bikes and beer. It's a "can't miss event" that must be on every Austinite's summer calendar. The ATX UAR WILL BE CAPPED at 1500 riders in 2011 - SO REGISTER ASAP!!!
Yes - it's going to be hot, but we've got you covered. many obstacles will cool you down with water, not to mention the waterslides at the after party and cold New Belgium beer! It's the place to be on steamy Sunday morning!
Bring your friends and family to the after party from 10 - 2! After party include contests, mini bike limbo, mustache contest, and much more!
