EMS Outdoor Demo Day at Sourlands

EMS will hold their annual Outdoor Demo Day at the Sourlands on May 27th from 10AM-4PM.

There will be:
  • Group bike ride
  • Kayaks and stand up paddle boards to try
  • Minimalist running clinic
  • Bouldering
  • Camping gear display
  • And more to come

I will lead the bike ride at 1:00PM. Our JORBA 6Mile ride is this day and unfortunately I cannot make it because I have to work. The plus side is that leading a group ride for EMS is my work on this day. So please please please go to 6Mile first, as I am starting this ride later so folks can do the 6Mile ride in the morning and then head over to the Sourlands for more biking fun - just trying to accommodate everyone and everything! :)

The ride will be a very casual pace, playing on everything. Just know this park is ROCKY and extremely technical.

If I learn of more details, I'll share them with you here.

Will EMS be bringing bikes to test ride? That's what a "demo day" usually means.

They may, but we aren't counting on it cause we don't know if we will have enough. The Demo Day used to be kayaks and things minus the bikes. Bikes are relatively new to the company so they aren't stocked with a demo fleet yet. I am sure that in the future the demo days will have bikes though in addition to the boats and stuff.
