For Throwback Thursday, here’s this reminder to buy your tickets online ahead of time for the 2016 North American Handmade bicycle Show in Sacramento. The last time NAHBS visited Sacramento in 2012, over 8000 bike enthusiasts mobbed the Sacramento Convention Center on the Saturday of the show. Those with tickets walked right in, while those who bought at the door waited in line.
This year’s show takes place February 26 – 28 at the Sacramento Convention Center, just a few easy bike-riding blocks from the Sacramento Amtrak station. They haven’t said so yet but they generally provide valet bike parking at NAHBS, though you can expect this to be filled to capacity by about noon on Saturday. I think I plan to drive there on Friday, so drop me a line if you want a ride-share from Santa Cruz or the South Bay.
You can buy tickets online at the NAHBS website. If you can’t swing the cost of admission, they still have volunteer opportunities available in exchange for a t-shirt and a day pass, which I think is a pretty sweet deal.
