We’re en route to San Francisco in the Speedvagen tank, preparing for the Mission Workshop party this Saturday for a night of bikes, music and beer. If you can make it out, we’d love to have you! Here’s all that’s happening while we’re in town:
Saturday, May 2nd ride:
Ride with Rapha from the Cycleclub
Meet up 8AM, Roll out at 8:30
Coffee provided by Four Barrel.
Expect a 2-3 hour no drop ride.
Saturday, May 2nd party:

Free Fort Point Beer and secured valet bike parking
There will be Speedvagens on display.
Drinks, and unseen art from Chris McNally from the Vanilla Collection
Bike parking will be provided by MW and Vanilla Workshop.
Next week I’ll be embarking on a trip with Speedvagen as we cruise the Cali coast, stopping at key spots and fitting customers for the 2015 Speedvagen Fit Tour. Which, I might add, still has a few spots open. Sign up for a Speedvagen Fit today.
Even if you’re not going to get fit by Sacha, you can come hang in SF on May 2nd and Los Angeles on May 5th at a few choice locations. Our host shops are the Rapha Cycles Club in SF, Mission Workshop’s Valencia store and Golden Saddle Cyclery in Silverlake. There will be group rides leaving from these shops, with special parties at night. Come check out some Speedvagens and artwork from Chris McNally on display.

With the northeast succumbing to Mother Nature’s frozen fingers this week, SF-based Mission Workshop drops this reminder on us, showcasing the beauty of the Norwegian coastline. Remember, no matter how cold it is where you are right now, there’s always somewhere colder!
“At the earliest sign of winter’s end, brothers Janne and Samu Amunét ventured towards the Arctic Circle. Constant travelers, they were eager to leave their home in Helsinki and explore the recently thawed Lofoten archipelago on the northern coast of Norway for their first road trip of the year. The twenty-four hour drive would take them through parts of Finland, Sweden and Norway still solidly frozen. However upon arriving on the coast the weather tempered. Usually a destination for summer trips, the idyllic village of Å was empty and quiet in a way only remote places can be.”

Here’s a quick video showcasing Mission Workshop’s Arkiv field packs being used. I’ve had mine for a few years now and it’s been so helpful while traveling around the globe. The modular add-on attaché case accessories make it one hell of an adaptable product, for just about any errand or job.

San Francisco’s Mission Workshop has been on a steady climb of growth since their first bag was released. Originally on Rondel, an alleyway off of 16th street, they recently expanded their space to continue all the way onto Valencia street, a prominent shopping thoroughfare in the Mission.
The brand’s design aesthetics carry over through a palette of raw wood and steel, as well as stark white walls overlaid with vinyl appliqué and photography. Taking center stage is their high end Advanced Projects and fledgling brand ACRE.
I had the opportunity to photograph this space, prior to the brand’s opening party last Friday… If you have the chance to see it for yourself, swing by. If not, check out the Gallery!

Remi Hooded Blazer
Mission Workshop’s Advanced Projects line has continued to grow, most recently with two waterproof, tailored outerwear pieces: the Remi Hooded Blazer and Styrman Topcoat. Each of these pieces hold true to the AP line with fully taped seams, pockets and ported media pockets.
These two pieces are cut for movement, but hardly look like any cycling apparel the brand has launched thus far. More details are in the works with the official release coming in the near future.
Come check out these two pieces in person tonight, along with the new ACRE series apparel at the Mission Workshop store opening in SF and see more photos below.
Hey SF, come party tonight. I’ll be there!
The Mission Workshop Valencia Street store is now open. Join us December 5th (6-11pm) for the first party in the new space. On display will be an exclusive preview of the F/W 2014 Advanced Projects outerwear and ACRE series apparel. Beer provided by Fort Point Beer Co.
