We love working with our friends and were lucky to partner with Giro on a bag experiment. The design needed to resemble a classic cycling musette or "feed bag", but with some much needed improvements. For one, we added a sternum strap to keep the bag from sliding off your back and a top flap to keep moisture out. Then we used a proprietary Giro cotton fabric that is water-resistant, breathable and very lightweight. This allows the bag to be folded down and packed away with ease.
Hey, hey. Let’s ride bikes this Thursday in Santa Cruz.
WHEN/WHERE: Thursday June 25th. Meet at 10AM at Kelly’s Bakery Parking lot. 402 Ingalls St.
WHAT: Riding mostly dirt on cross bikes. MTB’s would be fine too, but we’ll mainly be on fireroads and mellow singletrack. Medium pace, nobody gets dropped or lost. Heading up the coast on dirt, into Wilder, across campus and out through Pogonip. Might be some extra loops or detours along the way. Expect 3-ish hours of riding. Bring water, tubes, snacks. We’ll end at the Santa Cruz Mountain Brewery for lunch around 1:30-2.
*There will bailout spots: EARLY: Ride the 4-5 miles of flat dirt roads out of town and turn around before climbing in Wilder. MIDWAY: Climb through Wilder and bail at Twin Gates, then ride Empire Grade down to town.
Should be great! Come for a portion of it or just for the beer at the end!
