FrankenBike Austin # 182 – Presented by Roland Bikes, BikeTexas, Independence Brewing Company, Trudy’s, Ruta Maya Coffee and Junior’s Beer and Wine – will be held on SUNDAY August 29, 2021 from 10am-4pm at The Peddler Bicycle Shop – Hyde Park located at 5015 Duval St, Austin, Texas 78751 (scroll down for a map)
Their regular shop hours are Monday-Saturday from 10am-5pm. 512-220-6766
This is a great shop and we are super happy to be hanging out with them so bring yourself and a friend or 2 or solo-it and plan on making some new friends.
NOTE THAT THE SHOP WILL NOT BE OPEN DURING THE EVENT.
ALL VENDORS MUST REGISTER. The vendor registration page is here.
Load-in starts @ 9am – not a minute earlier – and we all need to be packed up and off the event grounds by 4pm sharp.
We are setting up in the alley behind the shop.
Inspired by and giving 100% credit to The Cannibal Bike Crew from San Antonio, Texas – unless we mess this up – there will be a short-track, straight-line drag race with 2 riders per race starting at 2pm. Lose once and you’re out. No fee to enter. We’ll all chip-in and hand out some prizes to 1st, 2nd and 3rd place… maybe you, too. Ha!
Chris is the event organizer for FrankenBike Austin so be sure to ask for him when you arrive if you need any help.
Until then, Stay Safe, make the most of your day and Go Ride Your Bike! Cheers 🙂

We welcome any beer requests you may have – if you don’t see it on our shelves let us know and if its distributed in Texas we’ll get it here. 512-222-7577.
