OUR HISTORY

OUR HISTORY

The Story

First conceived in Atlanta, GA in December 2004, with the first t-shirts made in March 2005, Faster Mustache is an independent, diverse organization with one thing in common: riding bicycles. Fixed or free, geared or single, cruiser, chopper, racer, clunker, we ride 'em. Our interests are as diverse as our riders but we are all dedicated to promoting safer riding conditions in our cities and being ambassadors for the broad bicycle community. Faster Mustache events cover areas of interests including psychogeography, political/social activism, design, urban transit, urban planning and construction, food and drink, music and movies, art and culture, mountain biking, chuttin' around the Chutlin Tree, and quesadillas. The name came from some Grafitti on the site of a building in Atlanta which is no longer there from a band that no longer exists. You can read more about this here and here.

There's a very thorough but slightly out-of-date history of our bike club here. All of the discussions and content from our old website are still up at http://old.fastermustache.org/.
