Greg, Jeff, Leah, and Syd got to have their fun rubbing shoulders with bike industry peeps at Interbike in Vegas and now it’s time for me and a photographer to head out to that other mountain bike trade show: Outerbike in Moab UT!

While Interbike is geared toward industry insiders, Outerbike goes right to the consumer. The format is similar; there are vendor booths, product demos, free lunch, cycling-themed movies and an after party, but here’s the cool part: anyone can attend!
For a flat fee of $166.78 (with tax) you too can rub elbows with industry peeps, but more importantly, you can demo as many bikes as you can throw a leg over in three days, all on the varied terrain of the Moab Brand Trails. As I mentioned, there is free lunch, and they also run free shuttles to must-ride Moab trails like Slickrock, Mag-7 and Sovereign.
The demo days portion of the event runs Friday – Sunday so if you’ve got nothing to do this week, it’s not too late! Book your pass and drive, fly, river raft, or bike your way to Moab for this awesome event!
Keep an eye on the Singletracks Twitter feed for pics and comments as we ride bikes and chat with the vendors, and also watch the blog for some upcoming reviews on the bikes we demo!
