I’m in California with Giro and their New Road Line Oct 18, 2012

A few months ago, the people from Giro let me take a look at a new clothing line they’re working on. It’s not race wear and far from commuter wear, something their dubbing the New Road line. To test out some pieces, they’ve flown a few people (myself included) to ride in the Northern California hills and dirt roads.

It’s been a while since I’ve been up in this neck of the woods and I almost forgot how beautiful it is. Almost. So don’t expect a ton of posts from me, the wifi is spotty and there are roads and trails to ride… But you can follow me on Instagram ( JohnProlly ) for more frequent photos.

    Which would get more use, specific-type-clothing or gloves (fingerless)?  Get your priorities straight Giro, update the Giro LX (fingerless) gloves with the features I suggested in another post and you’ll all be able to retire early.

      the Giro LX fingerless are DIALED now. I hated the other model.
