Tension mounts

Discussing the route, we think

Our 9th annual and 4 Mobile Social of the year brought the expected bike awesomeness, as seen in these photos.

Male Model

We like to keep the Mobile Socials a bit mysterious, like where the exact meet spot is OR how we hire male models to sex it up.

The full gallery is on G+ and Facebook and when we roll through your town, suggest you ride with us.

Fabulous Pure Fix

As Jackson Lynch from PureFix said, “this year’s MoSo was again a lively, festive, embracing and incredibly diverse collection of pedaling souls intent on spreading cycling love in another city that doesn’t sleep.

More MoSo Please!

Yup. Next year is already being planned. Photos by Josh Hon, Brian K. Mark, and Byron.

Bikes staged and ready to ride on the Strip

Our 3rd Mobile Social in Vegas this year and the 9th annual Interbike edition is happening tomorrow. We’re riding the Strip on Terns to downtown to the Park for beer specials with New Belgium and then to Atomic liquors to watch the Crit. Joining us are Knog, Pure Fix Cycles, Revolights, Green Guru, and you! Also Rapha is back after we rode together in Austin, during SXSW.

For the first few years, the Mobile Social was word-of-mouthed only and with zero advertising or marketing – it was like the smoke monster, just sort of happened. Then went away again. Back in 2008 when I was consulting with companies about social and creating interesting content, I wrote…

Announcing the Mobile Social Interbike (and the other ones we do), we get asked, “so what is a mobile social? I don’t get it.: Well neither do we, we’re just making shit up all the time and hoping to get paid!

OK, joking, joking – the Mobile Socials are an intersection of bikes, technology, and culture. We ride, talk bikes, blog, party, and give away product. The event offers no douchebaggery or lameness, but is for like-minded cycling fans of all types to get together and talk about bikes.

Technically, it’s a social media marketing event targeting an enthusiastic niche audience with lifestyle branding, but it’s just not our style to talk big with those sorts of mumbo jumbo words. As Brian Oberkirch describe them, “it’s a coffee klatch on bikes, an excuse to get together” with your buddies and geek out.

And next week we’ll get together again with our bike buddies in Vegas and ride the Strip. For the Bike Hugger Mobile Social presented by New Belgium Brewing and Tern Bicycles, we’ve got more partners involved, activities, and destinations than ever. So we made an itinerary and will have flyers at the show…

Mobile Social Interbike 14: Ride the Strip

Moso

MoSo IB 13

The 9th annual Mobile Social Interbike meets on Thursday 9/11 an hour after the show floor closes. Once assembled (about 6:30 PM) we’ll ride the Strip and arrive in Downtown at The Park on Fremont for beer specials and schwag. THEN we’ll move to Atomic Liquors for a knog Photo Booth and Hat Press. Joining us this year @newbelgium, @ternbicycles, @Knog, @PureFixCycles, @revolights, @greengurugear, and you!

Fun Map


This year, around the block from the cocktails and coffee, is Las Vegas Pedalpalooza and the Crit.

It’s gonna be one of those stays in Vegas nights on bikes… We’ll ride, party, and then party some more.

Details

Note that this is a long MoSo, so we’ll get broken up by the lights. Don’t try to regroup, just ride on and meet at the party. We’ll see you when we all get there and will keep the beer cold.

As usual, the first 250 to RSVP get the schwag and drink coins. The details:

  • 6:15pm – Registration at the South Convention Center Parking Lot, nearby entrance to Daylight pool club.
  • 6:45-7:00pm – Depart
  • 7:45-8:00pm – Arrive at The Park on Fremont
  • 7:45pm-10pm – NBB Beer Specials and some goodies (Screenprinting) at The Park and Atomic Liquors (Knog Photo Booth and NBB Hat Press). Watch the Crit.
  • 10pm – Tern bikes get packed/loaded out

For those new to the ride, this is a casual, social ride. We obey the lights, stick to one lane, and act like goodwill ambassadors during Interbike. Play nice with the cabbies and the rest of the drivers on the Strip think it’s all part of the Vegas experience.

See you there.

And here’s a edit from 2013.

Ride Started at Zappos

The ride started at Zappos HQ

After another fun Mobile Social in Vegas, that started at Zappos HQ, we’ll ride the Strip again during Interbike. That’s our traditional, annual ride and will post the details as soon as we have them.

What we know now is we’ll ride on Thursday, September 11th, to downtown again.

Bike Hugger is bike culture blogged. Our events are for like-minded cycling fans of all types to get together and talk about bikes and tech. Read more about Mobile Socials and become a Sponsor.
