Fall events in Moab and Bentonville still on the calendar.

MOAB, Utah (BRAIN) — Western Spirit Cycling, the producer of Outerbike, is postponing three summer events due to a shortage of demo bikes. The company also announced an expanded expo format at its two remaining planned 2022 events, in Bentonville, Arkansas and Moab.

Outerbike will not hold planned events in Killington, Vermont; Duluth, Minnesota; and Crested Butte, Colorado, this year.

Western Spirit's Mark Sevenoff said, "We absolutely love riding in Killington, Duluth, and Crested Butte and can't wait to share these great places with Outerbike riders. We have heard from cyclists in these regions and they are already looking forward to these events in 2023."

On April 15, Outerbike will begin selling tickets for Outerbike Moab (Sept. 30-Oct. 2) and Outerbike Bentonville (Oct. 21-23). The company said it expects demo bike availability to improve by then and it will limit full demo ticket sales in proportion to available demo bikes. Outerbike also offers a BYOB (Bring Your Own Bike) entry for riders who want to demo other gear and enjoy the trails without testing new bikes.

Brendon Cameron, Western Spirit's general manager, said, "Outerbikers are looking for more info on every imaginable outdoor product, from tires and helmets to tents and camp chairs. An expanded Outerbike expo will give the creators of these products a great opportunity to connect with, and sell to, core outdoor consumers."
