Calling all mountain bikers, gearheads, and adventurists — Outerbike is approaching, and this year might be the best yet.
Riders, get ready to meet your dream bike. Outerbike is more than doubling its demos for 2020.
To refresh your memory, Outerbike is a consumer-facing, hands-on event where you can demo bikes and bike gear from a ton of brands for 3 days. This is the 10th anniversary of the event, which took over in the biking community after the well-known Interbike trade show went out of business.
The community-oriented consumer event announced its four new locations this week. New locations include Deer Valley, Utah; Duluth, Minnesota; South Lake Tahoe, California; and Killington, Vermont.
In addition to doubling the event’s capacity, the four new locations will diversify Outerbike’s existing locations formerly centralized in Western states.
Of course, new locations means more bike brands and more gear for you to check out. Consumers can expect to see 2020-2021 demos from brands like Yeti Cycles, Ibis, Canyon, Specialized, Alchemy, Esker, and more.
“Outerbike is trusted to bring together the best mountain bike brands in the world with avid riders and devoted cyclists who are intent on finding their next bike,” said co-founder Ashley Korenblat. “We want each Outerbike event to be a unique and authentic platform for brands to serve consumers.”
