Welcome to Sacramento, California, for the 2012 NAHBS!
The North American Handmade Bicycle Show is the world’s leading handmade bicycle show. It is held annually, with no two years running in the same city, and 2012 is its eighth year.
NAHBS showcases the talents of individuals around the world whose art form is the bicycle. It aims to be a meeting point–both online and in person–for frame builders and consumers looking for custom-made bikes, for the sharing of ideas, and the promotion of a special industry with a rich history dating back to 1819.
The venue for this fabulous three-day show, March 2-4, 2012, is the Sacramento Convention Center, in the heart of downtown Sacramento.
The convention center is close to fine restaurants, hotels, museums, and the State Capitol. Sacramento is “small town friendly with big city amenities” and with a population of 1.5 million in the metropolitan area, it is Northern California’s fastest growing, most affordable, and attractive city.
As California’s capital city, Sacramento hosts more than 6 million visitors each year. Once again it has been selected as a stage finish in the 2011 Amgen Tour of California bicycle race.
The mild climate is ideal for enjoying the City’s bicycling activities, including the American River Bike Trail with over 32 miles of scenic bicycle paths.
