The 7th Mobile Social Interbike

Departed from the Sands

The 7th edition of the Mobile Social Interbike was like all of them so far, a rolling bike bacchanal on the Strip. We rode to Fremont again, parked in the Alley behind the Downtown Cocktail Room where New Belgium served us beer, and picked up locals along the way at every stoplight. While the music played from the Green Guru chariot, photos were taken by us, tourists, and motorists.

Knog lights were flashing on Terns too while big-wheels pedaled. Posted earlier on the surfing and so cool that Santa showed up. Next year with Interbike moving to Mandalay, were not sure yet how we’ll ride the 8th edition, but will talk about that next Summer.

The 7 editions have all been good with each one better. We even made the local Vegas culture weekly.

Back for our 7th year, the Tern Bicycles Mobile Social Interbike will ride the Strip to Old Town Vegas and arrive at a New Belgium Block Party. This is what we do at SXSW, but in Vegas with way more neon and weirdness going on.

Mark whipped the crowd into an car-hating frenzy immediately prior to the Mobile Social ride. No, not really. He’s giving directions, telling everybody to stay right, obey the rules, don’t run lights, etc.

Every year we wonder how we get to do this ride again. As I told Mark V, “if I’d woken up with a goat in my room would’ve said, ‘hey cool do you know that dog with the camera?’”
