Beyond walking the aisles of Interbike, checking out the new bikes, parts and trends of the show…one of the high points of the week is meeting up with the crew behind the 4130 Sin City Series ride for night of fun, rolling through the streets of Vegas.
I had to miss it last year (because I had to fly back early for a wedding) but I had my fingers crossed that the stars would align and I would be able to ride this year.
Well, the stars did align.
And, like he has in the past, Mike Leonard came through for me with a bike I could borrow for the night, along with a lift to the meetup spot.
(That’s Mike on the right…not sure why our skin looks like we’re under heat lamps..must be the Vegas lights.)
The group was smaller this year (I heard there was a race nearby that drew away a lot of people that would’ve participated) but it didn’t diminish the fun in the slightest.
It was good to catch up with Sal and Cactus, who I had rode with on previous rides.
The night was a blast…out in the elements, experiencing the crazy lights of the strip, the high fives of passersby and a good laugh with the other people on the ride.
Definitely a good time.
Let’s do it all again next year!
