Outerbike is a chance for you to test ride next year’s bikes and gear on world-class roads and trails in Moab, Utah. For three days, the world’s best bike and gear manufacturers will be set up at the Outerbike Expo site. You can walk through and see next year’s innovations, pick a bike you’d like to try and take it for a ride. Repeat as needed. There are 20 miles of connected loops that range from fun and easy to technical and gnarly, plus a paved bike path leading to two National Parks for road rides. Your registration fee buys you lunches, shuttled rides, prizes, movies and entrance to our evening parties.
The riding for Demo Days includes the "Brand Trails" network located adjacent to the event site. Additionally, riders will have the opportunity to take shuttles to some of the more famous trails in the Moab area. Shuttles will run back and forth to the trail selected for that day.
Show up before the Demo Days and join us for guided rides and clinics that will range from the Whole Enchilada (an all day epic) to the new North Klondike trails. Sign up for these rides when you register for Outerbike Demo Days.
You will need a bike for these Wednesday and Thursday rides and clinics, as the demo bikes won’t be available until Friday. You are welcome to bring your own (let us know if you would like to ship it to our office), or the easiest option is to rent one. Rentals are available from any of Moab's finest bike shops: Poison Spider Bicycles, Moab Cyclery, Rim Cyclery and Chile Pepper Bike Shop.
Each exhibitor will have their fleet ready to go when you arrive at their booth. They will ask you:
What model would you like to try?
How tall are you?
What size would you like?
You will hand them your pedals and they will put them on the bike. If you aren’t sure about the model they will ask you a few questions about what type of riding you do, what you are looking for in a bike and suggest something for you. Then they will whip out a bike, adjust it as necessary and off you'll go.
We are really excited about some changes for 2014. Stay tuned for details!
