Culture, Ping Pong and Bear Hugs @ Interbike

While there are an almost unlimited number of great events happening throught Interbike, here are a few that caught my eye while going through the big list today. I’ll try to post more of these “booth events” that we’ve been hearing about over the next few days.

Day 1

Sweet 16 Invitational Ping Pong Tournament; playoffs Wednesday and Thursday, final event noon Friday. Planet Bike Booth 1225.

Now, now. I think the proper name is Table Tennis.

  1. Taliah Lempert rocks! Her artwork is incredible, so bid early and often- you won’t be dissappointed.

    Hugging the BRAIN staff… poor Megan (I’ll try not to crush her ribs).

  2. Hugging Megan is a good thing! She’ll need it with all the rushing around she needs to do. Just try not to scare her as you rush up to her to get the photo op!
    What fun!
