Oregon Manifest

Pretty cool, kind of want to go check it out. Any takers?

Oregon Manifest

The Oregon Manifest Constructor’s Design Challenge is a one-of-a-kind design/build competition, in which some of the country’s best custom bike craftsman and select student teams vie to create the ultimate modern utility bike.

FIRST, to inspire and foster real design innovation around a bike that recognizes the needs of modern living. SECOND, to celebrate and champion the resurgence of American craft—bicycle craft in particular. THIRD, to show riders and enthusiasts that a well-crafted bicycle isn’t just for sport and recreation, but can also be a tool integrating seamlessly into everyday life.

The two-wheeled revolution won’t come on the saddle of a race bike or a specialty bike. The utility bike is the transportation mode of the future for millions of Americans who want to live healthier, more sustainable lives, but don’t think of themselves as “cyclists.” The key to realizing this future is thoughtful, innovative bike design that fills multiple needs and fits into their lives.

Lord of Griffith lll: Sponsor Package: Sheila Moon

This year I'm really trying to push the "Lady of Griffith' side of the race. I just got the Sheila Moon Prize package.
They really broke bread for you ladies. Almost $600 dollars worth of cycling gear is up for grabs for the females that race!
You got over two months to train and get ready for the epicness that is "The Lord of Griffith lll"...

Big thanks to Sheila Moon.
