The Journey to Texas

6 Mar


Hello all,

Our adventure is in full swing, and we have completed the first leg of our trip – an extremely memorable journey from the Big Easy across to central Texas. We are comfortably settled into our hotel in Austin now and ready to tackle the next few days. Check out Mr. Strauss’ glorious video of our adventure here:

Our journey began with our departure from the RGA offices in New York. We flew to New Orleans, and arrived just in time to see the final moments of Mardi Gras. We  departed early the next morning with a team of ten guys, a bunch of gear and several pristine Hammerhead prototypes crammed into a 12 seater van. We rolled through the swamps of Louisiana covered in their Spanish moss, and then finally into the crisp dry Texas spring air, auspiciously arriving on what turned out to be the eve of the 164thanniversary of the Battle of the Alamo. With all of our stops we turned an eight-hour drive into a twelve-hour adventure – it was one for the ages!

Austin is awesome, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to be here the great state of Texas, ready to make some history ourselves with the world’s first effective bicycle navigation solution. All the 9 RGA/Techstars teams are staying in one hotel and the anticipation and excitement for the days ahead is palpable. Piet and Jon will be extremely busy and will spend the next two days leading up to Saturday’s Demo Day tuning up the final version of our pitch and practicing to deliver it perfectly, while the rest of the team takes a few free moments to explore Austin. We will be sure to share our adventures here with you as they continue to unfold.

Until next time,

The Hammerhead team
