And there they are! Picking over the fleet of Haro and Masi bikes, plus the offerings from Marin, Scott and Look.
Riding back from the dam and back to the demo area. Notice the smiling face of Michael Beach of the San Antonio store; super nice guy with a ton of enthusiasm for the Masi brand... and the happy owner of a 3VC Ultegra, I might add!
Just like last year, we had a day of indoor presentations and then we moved outside for some bike riding. The terrain in Boulder City, around Lake Mead and the Hoover Dam, is pretty hilly with some great views around the lake and dam. It's a beautiful place to ride a bike, even with all the road work going on as you head to and from the dam. There is a bike path that goes along the lake and back to Boulder City that is nearly completed and is an incredible ride. The terrain of the path varies from gentle rollers, easy flat sections and leg-busting steep climbs- it's got a little bit of everything.
Our first ride was just minutes before sunset on Monday evening after driving 6+ hours to get to Boulder City... but we just HAD to ride!
Jill and James cruising along the really great bike path in the dessert- it's just a ribbon of asphalt that winds through the dessert and is a real blast to ride.
The view of the Hoover Dam from the Arizona lookout. Such an impressive piece of man made architecture.
All in all, it was a great trip and we were happy to be asked again to participate in the event. I always enjoy getting to spend valuable time with our customers... and the best times are when riding bikes!
