Attention all humanoids of the Milky Way Galaxy. You are all invited to attend the Intergalactic Surly Day celebration hosted by Surly Bikes and Bicycle Sport Shop.
Let’s celebrate Surly Bikes turning 21 years old! We will be hosting an officially sanctioned Intergalactic Surly Day party that will start in the alley behind the Guadalupe shop, beginning promptly at 4:20 PM. If you own a Surly, we hope you will bring your bike and show it off with fellow Surly owners in our “Show Off Your Surly” bike show. Bikes will be voted on and the winners of the coolest bike in each respective category of Surly Bikes (Pavement, Touring, Trail, and Hauling) will be awarded special limited edition prizes provided by Surly. YOU DO NOT NEED TO OWN OR RIDE A SURLY TO PARTICIPATE IN THIS EVENT!
At 6:00 we will roll out from the shop on a bicycle adventure through the Shoal Creek bike path down to the Ann and Roy Butler Hike and Bike trail where we will eventually end up at the Roy Guerrero Metro Park. Upon arrival to Roy G, we will be hosting various Bicycle Feats Of Strength. Anything from longest skid to most stylish ramping to games of Derby (aka foot down) will be happening with a few special Feats Of Strength sprinkled in for good measure. Prizes and awards will be given to the winners of each Feat Of Strength.
Once we are finished with the Feats Of Strength portion of the ride, we will ride over the Montopolis bridge and into Austin’s East Side where everyone is welcome to huddle up at or split off and head to their favorite drinking establishments to continue the celebration.
