What is a Mobile Social?

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.

Sponsors underwrite the event and provide the product and scwhag we give away.

Questions? Hit me in the comments. This is what Mobile Socials look like – check the video here.



Roadside Assistance

While a fellow cyclist can help with most issues, not much you can do about a lost crank bolt; unless, you have a crank bolt with you and a tool.

So what’s a Mobile Social Event?
It’s like a Tupperware party for bike enthusiasts, only without the beehive hairdo or weird cult-like party games.
No really, what is it?
It’s an intersection of bikes, technology, and culture – we ride, talk bikes, party, and give away product.
