The Swift Campout is This Weekend!

Here’s the Swift Campout Los Angeles details, accompanied by last year’s video by the Sleepers!

“Who’s ready for the #goldensaddlecyclery chapter of the Swift Industries Campout this weekend in LA!?!? We know we are! We’d like for everyone to meet at the bike shop on Saturday, June 25th around 2 and we’ll be rolling out around 3. There will be short stops for food and maybe a drink while we meander to the base of the mountains. We’ll be then taking the Mt. Wilson Toll Road up to Henninger Flats for the night!!! There is a 3 1/2 mile dirt road up to the campground, so bring to bike you feel most comfortable riding off-road.”

AARN Plastics: Made in the USA Eyewear

I am always on the look out for domestically-produced products, including everything from kitchenware to cycling eyewear. In my opinion, buying local when you can and buying products made in the USA, or Germany, or Italy will help sustain our country’s and other’s industry from within. Naturally, when friends launch new products and make them in the USA, I’m immediately drawn to them.

AARN may be known for his chainrings, but as an industrial designer, he’s always on the hunt for the next design problem and subsequent solution. That’s where AARN Plastics come into play. He wanted to design a made in the USA eyewear system…

These frames are handmade in New York from the highest quality NOS Italian cellulose acetate, built around precision German hardware, and come stock fitted with Zeiss CR-39 lenses of your choice. Materials are processed using a combination of traditional and contemporary manufacturing processes and mechanical finishing techniques. Each set of eyewear is then hand made, hand inspected and packaged by AARN.

And contrary to popular opinion, you don’t need to wear performance sunglasses on the bike!

A 1,500 Mile Journey For Water: California Water Cycle

California is in a drought and at this point, it’d have to rain everyday for months to pull us out (11 trillion gallons)…

“In January 2016, a team of two bicycled 1,500 miles around the state of California reminding students and local communities from where their water comes. San Francisco to San Diego, California Water Cycle toured coastal communities, schools, farms, and conservation alliances, bringing urgency to the current water scarcity in California. The duo finished their campaign along our state’s water canals, through the heartland of US agriculture, the Central Valley. With this adventure, the goal was to build community support and to foster a more water conscious California.”
