Rock the Bike Tonight

Pedal-powered dance party tonight.

Like riding bikes? Like feelin' the beats? Then tonight's the night to hit the road. This evening, Rock the Bike, a Berkeley, Ca-based group innovating the "Sex Appeal School of Bike Advocacy" (which they say focuses on biking's fun, independent, beautiful, romantic, quirky, and magical appeal) will unveil to Austin the Urban Mobile DJ, a bike-based sound system piloted by the reportedly-fly DJ Fossil Fool.

Riders are asked to meet up at Pure Austin Fitness Parking Lot (907 W. 5th St.), across the street from Whole Foods, at 8pm. The ride will cruise about Town Lake and make stops at Zen on South Congress and at Red Fez downtown. Rock the Bike also sells boss cycle accessories like more bike sound systems, bike-powered blenders, and neon lights. For more info go to: or
