Jan 18, 2017 – Fredericksburg TX; Fans of motorcycle sidecars are invited to the inaugural Sidecar Soiree event in the Texas Hill Country, where they will meet up with fellow “Sidehactivists” for planned rides, music, food and a special sidecar skills event dubbed the Hack Attack. The event will be hosted out of the Hangar Hotel in Fredericksburg TX, located in the Texas Hill Country two hours west of Austin TX.

Sidecars of all types are invited to participate, including vintage rigs and newer “adventure hacks” who will have a special dual-sport ride to enjoy even more remote routes and gravel roads. The event is designed to be a riders event, with activities ranging across the area including a visit to the fabled town of Luchenbach and the opportunity to visit the massive grant dome known as Enchanted Rock. Registration includes all non-ticketed activities, dinner on Saturday night and a tee-shirt or hat. Registration also includes a rolling portrait by nationally known photographer and event co-host Sara Liberte. Event information, schedule and registration plus access to the limited number of hotel rooms is available at the website. A mailing list subscription is also available for future events.

The event will be hosted out of the Hangar Hotel located on the Gillespie County Airport grounds. The premium and unique Hangar Hotel features rooms with king beds, a 50’s style diner, a wood and granite lined Officers Club and directly looks over the airport tarmac. The location allows for plenty of parking and easy exploration through the town that features great local food, live music and museums such as the National Museum of the Pacific War and many award-winning area wineries. Many nearby hotels, campgrounds and cabins offer alternate stays for those with campers or pets.

American Motorcyclist Association Hall of Fame inductee Larry Coleman, a national sidecar racing champion,  land speed racer and overall motorcycle industry hero, will be on hand as our Grand Marshall. His encyclopedic knowledge of sidecar set-up, racing and piloting tips will be available to participants. Local Austin Texas motorcycle dealer, AF1 Racing will be participating and bringing their own brand of enthusiasm.

Future Sidecar Soiree events are planned, and will be announced at the inaugural event. Sponsors, and information requests can connect through [email protected].
