This is so awesome:
“1894 found the United States in a deep depression. Unemployment was rampant, businesses were collapsing and crop value was dissolving back into earth.
Summer wage cuts at the Pullman rail car plant in Chicago, IL ignited the infamous Pullman Strike. Its battles and sympathizers echoed out across the plains, drawing in Eugene Debs, President Grover Cleveland, and the US Military, eventually reaching California and crippling rail service. No trains meant among other things, no mail.
In response, in July of 1894 a bicycle mail route was organized from Victor Cyclery in Fresno, CA north to the Overman Wheel Co. of San Francisco, CA. Totaling 210 miles, divided into 8 relays, and occupying 18 hours the route offered to carry a letter via bicycle from one end to the other for $0.25. “The only delay was an occasional punctured tire.”
We have created a commemorative patch, a replica of the original stamp present on each letter carried. We retained the misspelling of “San Fransisco” for authenticity.”
If you’re into random California history, pick up one of these replica patches.

Since everyone keeps getting shafted on patches these days, you should head to HSUPER! and pick up a few. While Bear Mountain is more like Bear Hill (at 1,284′), it’s a great ride for people living in NYC. There and back tolls in about 140 miles. Even if you’ve never been, you should pick one of these up as motivation to go! If you fancy something else, there are other designs. Check them out here.
I have quite the stack of patches accumulating on my desk at the moment and a whole stack waiting to go out for trades. Todd in Florida has been making these 2.5″ patches and the first run sold out so quick, I didn’t get the chance to post it up. These are still in stock, so swoop!
Edit: those went fast!
