Event Details

Riding a bicycle in the Texas heat gets a bad rap!  Pessimists predict spontaneous combustion for the outdoor recreationist upon contact with the afternoon sun, or warn of an unattractive transformation into a sweaty puddle of bad hair and permanent shirt stains after the mildest of exertions.
In contrast to the disbelievers, we at Bike Austin believe that being outside in the heat is no big deal, and we want to show the world that anyone can ride a bike on the Hottest Day of the Year. With proper clothing, hydration, and an open mind, we believe going by bike to the park, to the pool, a cafe, or for ice cream (esp. for ice cream) is completely do-able, fun, and preferable for cyclists at all levels.  
Please mark your calendars for the Hottest Day of the Year Ride and Benefit Party.  No training needed.

Meet up at East Side Pedal Pushers (1414 E. 5th St, across from Plaza Saltillo) at 1:30 PM.
Wheels down at 2 PM.
The 15-mile leisurely bicycle ride will include stops for:
  • swimming pools!
  • cold treats!
  • icy beverages!
  • food!
What to bring: water, sunscreen, water, goggles, floaties, squirt guns--you get the idea!  Some beverages and treats will be provided, but please bring money for dinner and any food stops.
Post-ride Benefit Party
If you have to miss the ride, you are invited to attend the Bike Austin Hottest Day of the Year Benefit Party.  The ride will end at the benefit party location, Alta's Cafe, 74 Trinity St., starting at 6:30pm.
(, where we are planning some special festivities for our supporters.  Suggested donation at the door $5.

Bike Austin

We envision Central Texas as a place where everyone recognizes and embraces the benefits of cycling, whether they ride or not, and where cycling is a common aspect of daily life for everyone. Central Texas has a comprehensive bicycle network enabling people in the region to comfortably, safely and efficiently use a bike for transportation and recreation. Bicycling supports the community as a whole by: increasing roadway capacity and user mobility; strengthening the economy and household affordability; improving the environment; and promoting an active, healthy lifestyle.
