NAHBS Welcomes Global Cycling Network to the 2019 Show

GCN to share the NAHBS experience with its community of 3.3 million people, including 1.6 million YouTube subscribers

The North American Handmade Bicycle Show, taking place March 15th-17th in Sacramento, is pleased to announce that one of the cycling industry’s largest and most popular media networks, Global Cycling Network, will be attending this year’s show, reporting on the best bikes, brands, and builders on the show floor. GCN boasts a community of 3.3 million people, including 1.6 million subscribers on YouTube and 22 million video views per month across all platforms, and will be bringing an array of NAHBS news and coverage to its followers and viewers.

Headquartered in the UK, Global Cycling Network covers it all, including tech news, instructional how-to videos, in-depth interviews, and coverage of the most iconic professional cycling events, along with their popular weekly news bulletin, The GCN Show. While the network’s content tends to be predominantly road cycling-related, the channel occasionally creates videos on cyclocross and mountain biking, mostly covered on GCN’s sister channel, Global Mountain Bike Network.

“Visiting NAHBS has been on our radar for a long time, so we're super excited to be heading out to see such a collection of the world's most creative and advanced bicycle craftsmanship, all in one place,” said Katherine Moore, GCN’s Audience Development Manager. “We love the diversity of bike disciplines that are represented at NAHBS, as well as construction methods, and look forward to getting to know the people behind the bikes and brands in Sacramento.”

Don Walker, founder and president of NAHBS, added, “We are extremely excited to have Global Cycling Network at this year’s show. While NAHBS has always attracted prominent media outlets and journalists, GCN’s global reach is unparalleled. We know their audience will be blown away by the world-class craftsmanship and artistry on display at NAHBS, and will be equally inspired and entertained by the unique stories of the builders that are the heart and soul of NAHBS.”

In addition to the high-profile media that will be attending NAHBS, the show is attracting more retail buyers thanks to its new “early-access” program, which gives qualified buyers from bicycle retailers free admission to the show each day. Qualified bicycle retailers and shops are able to secure a free buyer voucher (one buyer per store) by filling out this form here.  The NAHBS show hall will open one hour prior to consumer show hours, exclusively for retail buyers and attending media.
