Interbike coming to Sin City..again. Hah!

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Nice to know a guy at the LBS is so sick of bikes that he's giving me his pass to I-bike.

I'll be hoping to get some photo ops with Eddy Merckx and Greg Lemond hopefully

This town rawks as usual...

I'll go if someone wants to sell me their pass!

I went once through a family friend, but I don't think thats an option any more. Interbike is heaven.

I'd go if given a pass, but normally I wouldn't touch Vegas w/ a 10 foot pole.

I'd go this year but dont have the cash to make the trip down there. Next year though. Besides, being in Vegas when you are under 21 is quite pointless.

i have friends and family there. vegas is a nice place to visit when it's not hot, but outside of the glitzy part it's kind of a hellhole compared to just about anywhere other than LA.

If you're married, I think you're paying for it at least 30 years to life?

It's not just Hookers you know...

There are 1000's of women every weekend who go to vegas for vacation, bachlorette parties, or just to get away for a few days etc.. They are there for the same reason the guys are.

Gee, you're a real Warren Beatty. I'm really jealous. I'd love to be a sad middle-aged man who hangs out in hotel bars and hits on desperate tourists.

I don't hang out in hotel bars normally. I'm usually sick of tourists just like the other townies are, but if some hot chix want to hook up after my shift on the tables, I'm supposed to say no?

How are things in Kansas, Dorothy?
