AUSTIN TO HOUSTON FLUX RIDE


We took our bikes on the Texas Eagle from St. Louis to Austin where we rendezvoused with two crucial members of the tour, Sarah Kent from San Francisco, and Adam Wille from Kings Beach, CA.

There are plenty of things to do in Austin, like riding bikes to Barton Springs, enjoying wisteria blossoms on the Colorado River, or climbing one of the many moon towers.


Flux Bikes joined the cacophony of South By Southwest, using our solar powered set-up around town, at the Green House, and at Wardenclyffe Gallery




We were lucky to catch the Decentralized 
Dance Party and pump their pirate radio dance jams through the Flux setup.



Leaving Austin, our crew of five followed the bike map through Moore's Crossing, and went across a haunted train bridge.




Texas is a great place for bike tour. We were just in time to see the blooming lupine and many wildflowers.  And there are signs everywhere that say "Drive Friendly - The Texas Way." 



Flux Bikes performed the last night of SXSW Overflow Festival at Supper Happy Fun Land after relaxing at Buffalo Bayou, Houston, TX.
