January 15, 2010 Western Spirit Announces:

Outerbike

Moab, Utah – Outerbike is a consumer demo event for both road and mountain bikes in Moab, Utah September 30th to October 3rd. Exhibitors include: Cannondale, Fox, Ibis, Kona, Marin, Maverick, Pivot, Rocky Mountain, Santa Cruz, Specialized, Trek, Turner, and Yeti.

Outerbike promoter, Ashley Korenblat, explains: “There will be three different trailheads to give participants a chance to ride short and medium loops of all types. It is an opportunity to ride your dream bike on a world famous trail. Plus there is great road riding in Moab, making it the perfect place to demo both road and mountain bikes.” The three trailheads are: The Bar M, the Sovereign Trail, and the Slicrock Trail.

Participants will receive demos for all four days of the event, lunch at the trailheads, and discounted tickets to evening parties and films. The Registration fee for the four day event is $150. Proceeds will go to both IMBA and the Moab Trails Alliance. Korenblat adds, “We have been thinking about this for years. 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.”

Derek Pierce of Manchester, Connecticut, former Masters National Downhill and Dual Slalom Champion, said, “Finally a chance to ride the new bikes in a real life situation, not just a tiny little test track or a bike shop parking lot.”

Sean Hazell from Macomb, Illinois adds, “I am really excited about this event! I have always wanted to go to the Vegas bike show, but never had the credentials. It will great to actually ride the bikes before I make my next big purchase. I am also really looking forward to talking to the folks from the bike companies I have loved for years!”
