Sounds pretty good to me. I would love to go.
How can I get off of work? Maybe I can ask Court to write me a note.

How can you get in? You have to be associated with a bike store or related business I do believe.

It's not that hard at all. You just need to ask your dealer and they should be able arrange a ticket for you (Cameron shows up, so ask him).

I'm also coordinating a project with dealers to introduce ebike share program on our campus through campus sustainability initiative.

I think, ebikes make a lot of sense for students who otherwise would use public transport or used cars.

Just for the record:
Here is my linkedin = Ravindra Kempaiah https://www.linkedin.com/in/ravikempaiah/

A lot of people on this forum think I work for a particular dealer/s but in reality I don't. Retail business is not my cup of tea. I might license couple of my patents but they are all in nano/bio applied science, nothing related to lithium batteries or drive systems.

He may be in right now ;-) we'll see at the date of the show though ...
Yeah, It looks like they give you a NSA style pre-employment scrutinization reserved for terrorist applicants: http://registration3.experientevent.com .... Are all your documents in order? Yes they are Sir! ....Have you always cooperated with the authorities? Yes I have Sir! ...Sorry Calvin, you have been denied access due to a technicality.... And what is that?!! ... Our database indicates that on July 27th, 2014, at 11:35 you posted a sarcastic comment concerning InterBike on EBR. Off to the InterBike Gulag for you!

It looks like they finally hand out the award on Thursday, 9/11. These bikes cover a lot of ground and I'm not sure how the nominations are made, or based on what criteria. They give out a lot of awards, and it is clearly oriented toward the business and making money as a retail shop. As a pure consumer the less I know about this, the better. It's hard enough to find something to enjoy and maintain for a few years, so I focus on that. These are all interesting bikes for a shop to carry. They each have a different story, for sure. They are bikes that sort of 'sell themselves', either price or features or whatever.
