Day 1 at OutDoor Demo East : Interbike Times: "What a day here in Providence. Great weather, riding and energy for a perfect opening to our inaugural East Coast edition of the OutDoor Demo. We had great turnout at the event and a constant stream of riders heading out to the trails on new bikes. The NBDA Seminars and tech clinics were standing room only. We ended the day with a fun industry networking party where we served New England clam chowder, corn on the cob, corn bread, pizza, beer and refreshments. Met a ton of dealers from all over the East Coast. A few shops from New York City had rented vans to bring all their employees up for the event. Saw a few retailers from places as far away as Tennessee and Virginia, too. Heard that some shops had employees coming up on different days so that they could keep the shop covered and still experience the Demo."
