Saturday, August 6th, 1-9pm: The Hottest Day of The Year Ride

This Saturday, August 6th, 1-9pm: The Hottest Day of The Year Ride, A Benefit for The League of Bicycling Voters

It's Summer. In Texas. And it's hot... but when we get together on August 6th, it will be hot magic.

You see, with an average temperature of 97°, August 6 in Austin Texas is proven with science to be the average hottest day of the year. This Saturday, the forecast high is 106°F. We at the LOBV believe the Texas heat is no reason to keep you from riding your bike, and we want to gather as many people together to prove that as we can. Last year we had over fifty people. This year, with you, we'll have even more.

We'll start with some hanging and water at Mellow Johnny's Bike Shop, 4th & Nueces Sts., at 1:00, and roll out about 1:30 for a nice cruise around town, hitting up various spots around town for swimming, splash pads, food, ice cream, drinks and more.

Finally, at about 6pm, we're going to land at Dirty Dog Bar for some music from Fire Drinks Grass, Randall Holt and Bike Problems, as well as free beer from Uncle Billy's! We'll also be raffling off some items after the bands – stuff like a sweet single speed bike donated by Easy Street Recumbents, plus other bike paraphernalia from Mellow Johhny's Bike Shop and Fast Folks Cyclery!

Come for as little or as much of the ride as you'd like. You can find more information, including an itinerary of the ride at our website.
