We recently took a trip to Las Vegas, it was a very busy week and we had lots of fun too! During the week we attended Olympia, watched the Canelo v Golvkin fight in the MGM Grand and launched our NFL inspired collection in front of the famous Vegas sign. We also visited Interbike 2017 which was held at the Mandalay Bay Convention Centre.
After heading down to the sign to take some photos in front of it for a new product launch we went to Interbike. Interbike is the largest bike show in North America and one of the biggest in the world. This means many of the biggest cycling brands were there exhibiting. The conference takes place in two large halls which were made into one super big hall. There were also sections based on country, we especially liked the Italy section because of all the nice bikes!
It was a fantastic opportunity to see what’s new and what brands will be launching in time for next years cycling season. From bikes to accessories to nutrition, there are some wonderful products which we are already looking forward to!
Whilst there we wore our own cycling product, our Vive Le Yorkshire t-shirt which was inspired by the Tour de Yorkshire, an annual cycling race which takes place in Yorkshire where we are based. You can get your own t-shirt here.
Thanks to Sandra of Pennine Cycles, who was also visiting, for wearing our t-shirt which was featured in the Interbike Show Daily magazine, a daily magazine published at Interbike sharing all the news from the previous day.
One of our favourite stands to visit was Clif. We recently discovered their products and they had a fantastic display of samples which were all delicious – We especially love their new filled bars which are launching in the UK next year. They are really tasty!
We had a great time, walking around the large conference halls exploring all things cycling. It’s always good to connect with people who have the same interests and passions. We met Olympic medalist Nelson Vails on the Defeet stand, where not only we did get some of the socks with his design on but also snapped a selfie with him too!
Once we had finished at the conference we headed to the House of Blues for some a much-needed happy hour offerings. You do a lot of walking at Interbike so a recharge was definitely needed! We enjoyed the cajun popcorn shrimp and a couple of beers before walking back to our hotel after a great day.
