Outdoor Retailer: It's Coming...

Outdoor Retailer is just around the corner. The 2011 Summer Market edition starts on Wednesday, August 3rd with the open-air demo at Jordanelle Reservoir. This year, I am actually going to attend the open-air demo. I wasn’t sure that there would be anything for a bike geek like me to find or post about up there, then I looked at the website and found this:



Paddle Pedal Challenge, presented by H2O Overdrive and Outdoor Retailer
Between 9AM - 3PM: A time trial event, the first ever Paddle Pedal Challenge, where attendees will complete a short standup paddleboard course, followed by a 2.5-mile bike leg on a mix of pavement and dirt trails. Points will be awarded based on finishing times and can be redeemed for prizes.
I have never been on a standup paddleboard, but this sounds way too cool to pass up.

More to come about Outdoor Retailer…

So, are you actually going to participate or are you just going to watch? Sounds fun.
