BOULDER, CO (BRAIN)—The Rocky Mountain Bicycle Show (RMBS) was to highlight small custom frame builders, and they will remain the show’s focus, but show organizer Carol Johnson is also now opening up participation.
“It was difficult to decide whether to open the show into a trade and consumer show. I was worried we would lose our focus on small frame builders,” said Johnson. “But making it a cycling celebration will bring a new audience to the show and I think that is going to be a big advantage bringing the frame builders craft to a different audience.”
RMBS/09 will include all areas of the cycling industry while highlighting the custom frame builders in the Frame Builder’s Showcase. Both an industry and consumer show, RMBS offers the opportunity to display cycling related products, sell them, all for hundreds if not thousands of dollars below most trade show rates.
The show also will feature the collection of bicycle art from world renowned collector Howie Cohen, a History of the Bicycle display designed by vintage classic bike guru Mike Kone and a weekend ArtBike. There will be a Kids Corner, free two-ounce samples of beer from Colorado’s best microbreweries and Bicycle Colorado’s Bicycle Rodeo.
Tickets to the show are $10 at the door, kids under 12 are free. The show is scheduled for August 22 and 23, 2009, to be held at the National Western Complex in Denver, Colorado. For more information go to www.rmbshow.com (click on link).
