We're throwing a party on April Fools day to celebrate bicycles and the people who love them. Our Intergalactic Surly Summit will bring the non-competitive cycling community together to ride bikes, share stories, and enjoy a great time with awesome people. We'll have a bike show, swap meet, ride-out, and a visit to our favorite local brewery.
You don't have to own a Surly to join the fun. But, if you're a Surly fan we'll have all the latest Surly products available for you to try out.
