    Mobile Social at SXSW 12


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     bikehugger says he has been coming to SXSW for more than 10 years and his organization Bike Huggers Mobile Social started six years ago where hundreds of cyclists ride around Austin, TX during SXSW. This year bikehugger spoke to a couple during on of his rides around Austin and learned that they meet and feel in love during last year's mobile social and decided to move down to Austin to start a new life. "You come here and you are a part of something weird and something interesting and it is great, Austin is such a bike city," he says.
    - Jareen, CNN iReport producer

    Back for our 6th Mobile Social SXSW we rode from Club Deville around the outskirts of Austin and then back to town for beer and grilled food at the Frontier. Per tradition, a marching band sent us off.
