Upright Cyclist is a Boulder-based company focused on performance oriented cycling apparel that you’ll want to wear on and off the bike. Among their first offerings are these stylish yet durable jeans. Their Selvage Riding Denim jeans are sewn in Los Angeles from Cone Mills White Oak denim, which is made in Greensboro, NC. That makes them a truly American-made product.
They feature heavy 11 oz denim, a high rear waist, nine-inch double gusseted seat for riding durability, and reflective panels on both cuffs.
Retail price is $159. Check out www.uprightcyclist.com
Downtown Cleveland Ohio, its surrounding neighborhoods, and sprawling suburbs closely resemble other similarly sized metros that were developed with automobiles in mind. Streets, even those cutting through the heart of downtown, are as much as six lanes wide with cars regularly traveling ten miles per hour over posted speed limits. Cyclists are often left to figure it out for themselves among the pothole-laden asphalt, often without a bike lane to offer even some notion of protection.
Wolfpack Hustle takes it to the track for a 24-lap elimination race at the Carson Olympic Velodrome. The streets are always exciting, but there’s something surreal about going all out in the velodrome. Hot.
