The total bike geek and lover of all things bicycle related will relish having access to product designers, pro racers, and other industry insiders.
Outerbike promoter, Ashley Korenblat, explains: “Outerbike is a great chance to meet the folks behind the bikes and get to ride on World-class trails. The Moab BLM has partnered with us and Grand County to create one giant demo site just outside of Moab. And since new exhibitors continue to sign up we have lots and lots of bikes to ride on miles of new trails from easy to technical. ”
Registered participants will be able to visit each booth, tell them their height, toss over their pedals and take a spin on the Bar M trails right from the exhibit site. And there will also be shuttles to a different trail each day coming and going every 15 minutes. So checking out Moab’s other famous trails will also be possible.
In addition, a brand new paved bike path goes right to the site giving participants great access to road rides into Arches or Canyonlands National Parks. Downhill specific shuttles will be running daily.
Participants will receive demos for all three days of the event, lunch and Clifbar products, admission to evening parties and films, plus great stuff from exhibiting companies.The registration fee for the three-day event is $150. In a press release Korenblat said, “The bike companies work hard to get their new product ready for the Vegas show, but since that show isn’t open to the public, only dealers get to ride the new bikes. Now everybody can.”
