Eurobike - Bikes, Coffee, Food & People

For the first time in several years, I'm missing Eurobike. It is true a joy being home with my family. In fact, this three day weekend has been incredible as I've gotten to hang out with my awesome family, do a family bike ride with the trail a bikes and assembled & rode a new prototype bike. However, there is a little part of me that is already missing being part of the song and dance known as Eurobike.

I'll be missing a lot of things this year that I've grown accustomed too. You see, in the industry I work in, being part of the mix is sometimes as important as the product you are showing. Most of all I'll miss these things.

Cool bikes that you don't get to see in the US Market.

Coffee everywhere!

Great food!

People watching in the Plaza!

I can't wait to watch and read about Eurobike. It's going to be fun week.

I love the atmosphere at Friedrichshafen - especially compared to Vegas. The one important item you forgot to mention are the tall Hefeweizens quaffed at one of the cafes overlooking the lake.

So true Mike. That said, I'm controlling my caloric intake and it was left out intentionally. :)

Eurobike would be a fun show to get to... A distinctly different atmosphere than Interbike, that's for sure.

I agree mg: Maybe someday! Ya never know where life will take you.

gnat: I am glad you got to spend that time with your family. That's awesome and I'm sure they appreciated having you around. I know it was good to sacrifice some ridsing time to do the same with my family.

See ya soon!
