OR Show to Feature Bikeshare Program

Published July 15, 2009

SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO, CA (BRAIN)—The Outdoor Retailer Summer Market trade show will feature a Bikeshare Program, presented by Swobo.

This bike share program will be available for show attendees and exhibitors who want to exercise, run errands or tour Salt Lake City by bike at the 2009 Outdoor Retailer Summer Market trade show. The show will take place at the Salt Palace Convention Center in Salt Lake City, July 21-24.

Twenty brand new Swobo Novak commuter-style bikes (pictured) will be available for Outdoor Retailer attendees and exhibitors to use in 60 minutes intervals, free of charge with a credit card deposit, starting at the South Plaza of the Salt Palace. The Novak is equipped with three-speed SRAM internal hubs and comfort features for urban riding. Rental bike locks and helmets will be included with the Bikeshare checkout.

The Salt Lake City Bicycle Collective will also offer free bike valet services at the South Plaza for attendees and exhibitors who want to ride to the Salt Palace with their own bikes.

The Bikeshare at OR presented by Swobo and OR bike valet further support OR's Green Steps efforts to spread ecologically sound practices throughout the industry. Together these services will give Summer Market attendees and exhibitors the option to use a carbon-neutral mode of transportation to navigate Salt Lake City.
