The Interbike Festival will be held Saturday October 10 and Sunday October 11, 9 a.m. - 5 p.m., and will be held in conjunction with the Providence Cyclo-Cross Festival at Roger Williams Park in Providence, Rhode Island.
The first annual Interbike Festival will gather bike enthusiasts from around the eastern United States in Roger Williams Park to see and demo soon-to-be-released bikes and accessories from brands such as Giant, Haro, Rocky Mountain, Scott USA and SRAM to name a few.
Attendees will benefit from the Roger Williams Park's road, commuter, mountain and cyclo-cross bike testing areas including one road loop and two scenic off-road trails.
