What It Is

Fun and funky cycling event for bike lovin’, adventure seekin’, beer drinkin’ folks who appreciate an epic party as much as an amazing bike ride.

Austin start

The Urban Assault Rideā„¢ combines the best parts of a bike race, adventure race, obstacle course, and a back yard party.

Here’s how it works: You and your teammate will set out on a city-wide quest for ‘checkpoints’ on your favorite two-wheeled steeds. At each checkpoint, you’ll drop your bikes and complete a funky/adventurous obstacle course, then remount your bikes and hit the streets for more.

The goal is to complete all the checkpoints in the shortest amount of time. You choose your own route and checkpoint order. This means that the most clever are often the victors. Of course, it may also help if you can pull a mean big-wheel power-slide and fly across an inflatable slip-n-slide.

After your pedal-powered adventure, your team will cross the finish line and enter a massive celebration of bikes and beer. The after party is just as much fun as the ride itself, thanks to the craziest raffle prize contest you’ll ever experience.

Most participants do the UAR just for fun (it’s not the most competitive event out there). Everybody loves the obstacles (which change every year). Many participants walk home with awesome prizes either from their performance in the ride or from winning one of the after party contests.It’s a blast for buddies, couples, families, triathletes, runners, craft beer drinkers, mustache lovers, good music aficionados, and people looking to experience one helluva celebration of BEER, BIKES, and BIG WHEELS!
