You heard it hear first folks… after a highly successful inaugural event, the Pedal Nation Bicycle Show has announced they will return to the Oregon Convention Center April 8-11, 2011.

Show co-founder Aaron McBride, got in touch with us to share the news. He says after getting such a solid turnout of about 4,000 attendees and 110 exhibitors, he’s excited to put on the show for a second year. In addition to the fun features of this year’s show (like the Pimp’d Bike Contest, Kid Zone, Fashion Show and more) he’s got some exciting things up his sleeve for 2011.

When we asked for feedback, readers chimed in with nothing but positive feedback.

McBride says he’s most proud at how the show brought diverse types of riders together under one roof. “I loved seeing all the different types of people and riders that showed up. It seemed like everyone felt welcome, and that was the goal.”

We’re looking forward to helping spread the word about the 2011 show. Stay tuned for more details.

    Yay! That was a fun show – saw a lot of products I’d never seen before and the speakers and exhibitions were great. We’ll be there next year for sure!

    I am looking forward to setting up as a vendor again.

    Expect more carbon fiber hats.

    Had a great time and was well worth it.
