The Urban Assault Ride™ is the biggest Bicycle Obstacle Event series in the nation! Here's how it works: Two-person team set out on a city-wide quest for 'checkpoints' on their favorite two-wheeled steeds. At each checkpoint, the teams must drop the bikes and complete a funky/adventurous obstacle course, then remount bikes and hit the streets for more. The goal is to complete all the checkpoints in the shortest amount of time. Each teams chooses their own route and checkpoint order. This means that the most clever are often the victors. Of course, it may also help if team members can pull a mean big-wheel powerslide and fly across an inflatable slip-n-slide VOLUNTEERS are needed to staff the wacky events at each checkpoint. For the past few year ARR has committed to having volunteers help monitor participants performance at checkpoints, encourage them during each wacky event and award the much desired beads. Volunteers are rewarded with a fantastic time, limited edition T-Shirt, lunch and beer (for those of legal drinking age, of course)

The Austin Ridge Riders is also one of the beneficiaries of this event and funds raised are used to fund all our club events, included trail work days and monthly club event lunches.

Austin, TX: June 24th Benefiting: Austin Ridge Riders and Yellow Bike Project

The Urban Assault Ride is an Austin summer cycling institution. What 1st started as a tiny sparkle in a local bike racer's eye has now turned into the biggest competitive cycling event in the Lone Star state. There's a reason why - every year the UAR gets bigger with fresh and funky obstacle courses and a massive celebration at the finish line. It's a "can't miss event" that must be on every Austinite's summer calendar.
