My apologies for the two week absence of this weekly post. While I was gone learning to build bicycle frames, it was very hard to make posts and I neglected to ask Marcus to take up this project. Hopefully, we’ll see no future lapses in providing you a quick round up of bike culture events in Austin for the upcoming week with ATXBS as our guide.
