I arrived at my campsite–nothing more than a tent pad and a trash hook on Avery Creek Road in the Pisgah National Forest–just after dark. A steady drizzle was coming down, but not too much to set up a tent. So I got started, unpacking the truck and making final preparations for tomorrow’s ride: Stage 3 of the Pisgah Stage Race. I covered my bike with a yoga mat that I use as a tailgate pad, so it wouldn’t get rained on all night.
Great job to everyone who came out and made our event possible! It was a tough day that included four unique race stages. The overall results were tallied by assigning points to every racer based on his/her placement for each stage and added at the end for an overall score. Impressive racing, chuts!
*Unfortunately, our 3rd race stage was cut short and we were unable to use it as an official stage. We hope that those who got to ride it at least enjoyed the awesome course!

So uh, it's been topping out around 70F these days in Atlanta, and it's really really dark at 7am now. This means that #fmrideATL is back at it for 2015.Read More
Have you ordered your Faster Mustache 2015 jersey yet?! Now is the time! We are keeping the order open for a couple more days, since pay-day is Friday. We haven't hit our minimums on certain items, but we are really close! Get your order in and help us out!
You don't have to be on the team to order or wear an FM kit. You just have to share our vision of a harmonious universe of bicycles, beer, and friends.
Why sit on my thumbs trying to keep them from freezing in Charlotte when I could be dodging pine trees and limestone clumps in Florida for the better part of a day with my buddy from Tennessee?
We are one weak away from FM:Wheels to Farm and we're so excited our hair is falling out! No, seriously! Just look at Nico and Christopher! Make sure you pre-register and we will see you soon in HOT*LANTA!!!! *warm temperatures not guaranteed
As for Tour de Charlotte: we're just over a month away and all of the pieces are falling into place. Maxxis is preparing a special shipment of fresh rubber prizes (and some of them are tires!). PBR is ramping up beer production at their Milwaukee facility in preparation for our after party. And the registration page is up! https://www.bikereg.com/TDCLT
So let's recap, in case anyone is confused. Faster Mustache is gearing up not one but two sick events for your urban trail-riding pleasure. First is in Atlanta, February 28th, for the FM:Wheels to Farm event. Second is in Charlotte, March 28th, for 3rd Annual Tour De Charlotte. 2 great cities, two unforgettable events.

Thanks to everyone who braved the conditions for the 2014 edition of The Backyard Experience. The weather was cold and rainy, the trails were twisty and technical, and the field was STACKED with some serious heat.
Results were based on accumulated time from 4 separate race stages. We awarded time bonuses for riders who rocked the jump-line during our halftime show, which clearly shuffled the deck. Mike King's huge boosts gave him the edge over Ben Renkema's otherwise flawless racing.
In the women's race, April Wells proved impossible to catch, holding back 2nd place Emily Watts on every stage to take the top spot on the podium.

Man can not live on Pringles, pop and pizza for 100 miles, but he can certainly die a glorious death.
Once more into to belly of the hundred mile, lump backed beast and back out the other end.
