If you haven't heard, the 1st Annual Interbike Tweetup was a huge success! Our heartfelt thanks go out to over 200 peeps that came out to win some incredible schwag and helped us raise over $1,500 for the National MS Society and AIDS/LifeCycle.

We hope you had as much fun as we did. We look forward to doing this bigger and better next year!!

If you have pictures from the tweetup, please share them by posting a link in the comments section. In the meantime, here are some from @matthewscd. And more from @carsonblume. Thanks Chris & Carson!

We will have a table set up where you can purchase tickets upon your arrival. Ticket prices are as follows (remember this is all goes to the National MS Society and AIDS/LifeCycle

  • 1 for $3.00
  • 10 for $25.00
  • 20 for $40.00

The raffle will be held every 15 min starting at 7:30pm until 10pm.

Winners must be present to win as we do not have the facilities to store or ship items. If you decide to leave early, share the love and give your ticket to someone else.

Here's the list of schwag (or swag, how ever you prefer to say it). Keep checking back as it continues to grow...

Thank you so much for participating and remember - be there or be square!

We know, we just finished telling you the schwag raffle would be free - but then the light bulbs went on... Why not make it a charity raffle?

The overall response has been a resounding 'YES'. So we're doing it!

Please, take the time to answer our poll and let us know what price point you would be willing to donate to charity. Because all raffle items have been donated, 100% of the proceeds from the raffle will be donated to a charitible organization. This year, we have chosen two that will share the funds equally - the National MS Society and AIDS/LifeCycle. We hope you all participate and help us make this a worthy cause.


Add these to the Charity Schwag Raffle...

In less than one week, Lavo Restaurant, Bathhouse and Nightclub will host the biggest tweetup in Interbike history! ARE YOU READY?

Aside from partaking in some adult beverages and good conversation, we're adding several elements that will make this a tweetup - one to remember.

Let's start with the Schwag Raffle. The raffle is just for fun - there is no fee to enter. All you have to do is ask for a raffle ticket from one of the team members when you arrive. If you don't know who we are - this will be a good way for you to mingle as you try to find us.

So what's on the Schwag list? Well, to start...

More items will be added to the list as the week progresses. If you have any schwag that you would like to share, just DM @bike_tweetup and we'll put you on the list.

If you haven't heard, Interbike is expanding Interbike TV to cover both the show floor and after show events. These means you just might end up on TV!

Finally - don't forget to make your dinner reservations now at Lavo for later in the week. Don't wait till the last minute!
