The Athletic: Richard Sachs Cyclocross Collection

‘Cross is here (obvs) and the Athletic once again has teamed up with the Richard Sachs Cyclocross Team on a small capsule collection. This year however, they’ve expanded into two caps, while reducing the sock offerings to two designs. I really like the Belgian cap offering!

Head to the Athletic to see the full collection.

The Athletic: You Got This Socks V2

Cait’s first collaboration socks with the Athletic were a huge hit. For those unfamiliar with Cait, she’s a cancer survivor and a purveyor of stoke through a steady dose of encouragement and positivity. Much like her newest socks, she’s a bright and fun woman. Something the cycling industry always benefits from!

The Official Get Sick Day Worldwide Recap – Sean Talkington

The Official Get Sick Day Worldwide Recap
Photos from a whole lotta folks and words by Sean Talkington

Think about what we use our personal or sick days for? Dumb stuff. Staying home sick (or if you have kids you stay home when they get sick), going to the doctor, going to the DMV, jury duty, visiting in-laws, funerals, etc. Question: What do all of these things have in common? The Answer: None of them are fun. Sure, you can schedule your vacation time around whatever events you want but what if you really just want or need a single day to get your head right? Can you just tell your boss “I think I am going to skip tomorrow and ride my bike locally all day with some buddies. Might do a little swimming too. Fuck it. Maybe even grab tacos after and watch the sunset.” Some of you have awesome bosses but the majority of us are afraid to take a day off for ourselves… (more…)

The Athletic: Tigre Noir

I’m all for helping people out! The Athletic is helping out Aaron in Portland with these Tigre Noir shirts:

“”Crashing bicycles is expensive.” Heck yeah it is. That’s the hashtag that our friend Aaron has been using a lot in the past couple weeks. He had a nasty fall from his bike, then a pleasant ride in a helicopter (there were drugs) and now he’s on the mend and about to head back to work. But that doesn’t mean there wasn’t bills…so many bills! We thought maybe we could help.

Now, Aaron has also been hounding us for quite some time to make a grey on black version of our friendly little tigre, so we decided that this might be the right time. Plus, he only wears black and only shoots black and white photos, so, what could we say??

NOTE: We will be donating $10 for every shirt sold to Aaron’s bills fund. If you would like to donate further, head over to his GoFundMe Page » Aaron Vs. T6. Every shirt comes with a “Yo Thanks!” decal that Aaron has provided as his way of saying thanks for the support. ”

Pick one up at the Athletic.
