We just got back to our homestay and are winding down and had to put up a quick post. Thanks so much to the REI in downtown Austin for giving us the space and a special thanks to all our readers and Facebook Fans.

We had a great time meeting folks and doing the presentation. It was an intimate setting with only 40 seats and there was only one empty seat! We are so stoked that those that made it braved the crazy SXSW scene!

Everyone who attended got a free copy of Adventure Cyclist and a cool transparent bike sticker.

Some lucky attendees who answered our trivia questions correctly got some great prizes like brand spanking new Klean Kanteens and memberships to Adventure Cycling.

One lucky winner walked away with this book that I purchased at the bookstore in Alpine after I got so many comments about it on our Facebook page!

Laura greeted the people that came in and made sure everyone who registered got first dibs.

We brought our bikes for show and tell.

A good time was had by all!
