Faster Mustache is a progressive non-organization made up of a diverse group of Atlanta residents with one thing in common: riding bicycles. We believe in the power of cyclists to change our communities and our world through ongoing discussion, entertaining events, and positive action. Online and on the road, at work or at play, we challenge everyone to use a bike. It doesn't matter what type: fixed, free, geared, single, cruiser, chopper, racer, or clunker. No two bikes are the same and certainly no two riders are the same, but in the auto-centric city of Atlanta, we have fun
sticking together. Simply put, we invite everyone to bike everywhere with us. Welcome to Faster Mustache!
Daylight savings time's switch flipped, so it's time to get back in the habit of this!
Here's a proposed route: http://bit.ly/abhYRp
Be at Outback Bikes in L5P for a 6:30 pm departure! We'll work out the details of the route over the next few weeks and post an official route on this site once it settles in.
Hello friends of FM:Race!

As part of the proceeds from FM.24.09, Faster Mustache sent some money to the East Atlanta Kids Club by sponsoring Ann in the Augusta 70.3 triathlon. Here's the note from her:
Dear Chris and the Faster Mustache, premiere sponsors of my “Augusta 70.3 for EAKC” fundraising effort -
Well, it has been almost 2 months since the completion of my race. You were probably wondering what happened to me?!?! Well, my delay in thanking you was partially due to my inability to FIND the pictures from the race. So, at long last – here they are!
Despite my delay, I want to let you know how incredibly grateful I am for the support your group has shown me in this effort. Your support of my crazy triathlon adventure helped raise over $1000 for the East Atlanta Kids Club. You are helping to provide much-needed funding for the continuation of the Kids Club, an incredible organization dedicated to enriching the lives of the youth of Southeast Atlanta.
While I could have covered the distance, you helped make it really MEAN something. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

December 6th, Georgia International Horse Park, Conyers. A marching band playing 'Ride The Lightning' start to finish, singlespeed demo's available by Snyder Bicycles. Course is laid out, and is very spectator friendly. Bring whatever two-wheeler you have, a cooler of beer, and come race.
Psycho Cross was a blast. A big thanks goes out to Jeff Hopkins and all the Volunteers who helped out. I knew this one was going to be a muddy one watching the juniors take hold of the short, but awesome, course. So for those of you who missed out on Psycho Cross, you missed out... It was as much for the spectators as it was for the racers. A good solid heavy rain the morning of left the grounds soggy and muddy, primed for cyclocross. To add the fun was the fact it was held on Halloween. So many racers were wearing costumes, and the ones not on costumes were dressed as cyclists (rim shot). Bruce Dickman kept everyone amused with his antics and race commentary.
I am putting together a race.
You should ride your bicycle in it.
Critical Mass is here again and this month it brings the joy of Halloween and Gay Pride Weekend. It's never happened before, and it should never happen again as we should have Pride back where it's supposed to be, in June, seeing how the drought is way over.
Here are 2 links to give you all the details that you need to know. Community, Activism, Fun. Who could ask for anything more?
I am sending this out to everyone near and far. I ask that you do the same. A lot of my friends and yours will be coming in from out of town. Bring your bikes and let's ride together.
I've taking the day off for this and I can't wait. What to wear?
After getting super excited about using an open weekend during cross season to try out an endurance race, Eric and I had abandoned or plan to do drag our children and significant others along for the six hour race on the Wednesday before due to forecasts of bad weather. Eric had sounded pretty dejected on the phone after the decision was made, mumbling something about taking a shower and going to bed, and promptly hanging up. I called Eric the day before the race, and convinced him that we should race the 12 hr. duo, bring the kids along, and trade off riding and watching the tikes.
Gather your loved ones around, pull out a PBR, and give 24.fastermustache.org a read. Thanks Atlanta!
