People can get a little bit excited when they get to ride tons of new bikes in a given day (especially when a cowbell is involved).
For 2012, Outerbike has plans of not only increasing the quantity of bikes available to ride but a new system to help you get to ride the bikes you really want to ride. The new system allows exhibitors to mark a few of their bike that are high in demand and low in number as 1 hour rides. This will keep those bikes in rotation and not on a shuttled ride all day, ensuring that everyone who wants to ride it can!
