Our “neighbours” at the Kona office down the road took one of the custom wool jerseys we produced for them last year to Versoix, Switzerland, where they shot this beautiful video for their new Rove range of bikes.
The Adventure Cycling Association is offering youth scholarships for cyclists aged 18-25 who are interested in participating in their Leadership Training Course or the Introduction to Road Touring course. The offered scholarship covers airfare!, the cost of one of the courses which includes meals, lodging accommodations, and the cost of a rental bike and gear. Perhaps this is only offered to Americans, but hopefully young Canadian Students can apply?

After literally considering four continents for a base layer material, contacting more than a dozen suppliers, and scouring through hoards of swatches we found a small American Mill that produces, by what we have felt, the softest and highest quality 100% Merino Wool. It was very important to us to source as regionally as possible so we used this buttery-soft merino to make a small batch run of our new Le Domestique base layer.
For the third year in a row, our production studio will be open to the public next weekend, as part of the 2013 East Side Cultural Crawl. We’ve been hammering lately, and can’t barely wait to show you all the new products we’ll be presenting at the Crawl for the very first time. Plus: food, some sweet sales on selected items, a bin full of wonders for your own crafty needs (wool end rolls, threads, etc), and our tired but friendly selves ready to hear your crazy ideas for your new one-of-a-kind wool cycling jersey.
