Interbike is to bicycling fanatics what Fashion Week is to style mavens: that highly anticipated time of year when the new crop of apparel and gear from top designers is finally unveiled. In honor of the September 18-20 event at Mandalay Bay Convention Center—and the Viva Bike Vegas ride that follows on September 21—four local enthusiasts donned the latest garb of the biking lifestyle they represent.
This year’s Interbike includes a public day, September 20, when non-trade attendees will be allowed to browse the show floor. For information on how to get in, visit InterBike.com.
