Strawfoot Dopey Bear Bottles
IMG_5875_1024x1024

Did you know the bear on the California flag is the last grizzly said to have lived in this state? Monarch, the supposed last grizzly, is even on display at the California Academy of Sciences. The California Grizzly was designated the official state animal in 1953, over 25 years since the last known grizzly was shot and killed. Yes, there’s a sordid history with the good ol’ brown bear in this state, so when I see something like the Strawfoot Dopey Bear bottles come around, I’m glad I can crack a smile. It’s like Smokey’s dopey cousin!

Pick up a set, which includes an olive drab (day) and a manzanita (night) bottle, at Strawfoot.

Choke Out Winter with Brancale’s Made in the UK Cycling Gloves
Brancale_Winter

There’s something very Dario Argento about this product photo for Brancale’s new winter cycling gloves and I like it. These gloves are made in England, come with a fleece liner and a cognac-colored finish. I’ve used similar gloves in cold weather and love them. Plus, they look great off the bike. They’ll set you back $200, and are in stock now. Head to Brancale‘s site for sizing information and ordering.
