Chrome bags and apparel out of San Francisco knows how to appreciate their messengers. They figured if couriers can ride bikes in the hills of this West Coast gem, they might as well be able to ride a barrel connected to some ropes. That’s right they threw an old fashioned rodeo right in their store.
Read the recap here.
They also know how to appreciate the feet of us riders. They’ve just come out with a new shoe…the Toburk Slip-on.
Here is a press release: After countless requests to build a classic slip-on shoe that will hold up on the bike, Chrome is proud to announce the newest addition to their footwear line, the Tobruk.
The Tobruk is filled with details that make riding in them easier and the shoe, itself, tougher. Those features include:
Â· Low profile design to better fit into a toe cage
Â· 100% vulcanized construction
Â· Weatherproof 1,000 denier Cordura with back-padding
Â· Re-enforced nylon/glass fiber shank to support the midsole
Â· Board lasted sole to eliminate pedal hot spot
Â· Skid resistant contact rubber on the sole
Â· Polyurethane contoured crash pad insole
Â· Durable rubber heel cup with reflective safety hit
Â· Center gore slip-on design
After leading the way in both bag and apparel design and manufacturing, footwear was the natural extension of Chromeâ€™s commitment to building durable, functional products that last. It just so happens that they look great too.
Bring your dog and bicycle to third annual Time’s Up! Doggie Pedal Parade. We will ride our dogs in baskets and trailers attached to our bikes, listen to doggie tunes playing on the “music bike”, and end at Washington Square Park for a party complete with free snacks and drinks for all, including tofu dogs & vegan chocolate bars donated from Earth Matters & Rescue Chocolate.
The ride will highlight bicycles adapted to transport pets (see 5/20 Pup Your Ride workshop) as well as the benefits of adopting homeless animals.
If you don’t have a dog you’re encouraged to still come on the ride or join the Safety Pooch Patrol to help escort the ride.
If you don’t ride a bike, you and your dog can still join us at the end-of-the-ride party at Washington Square dog run, starting at approximately 3:30 PM. Rain date May 30, 2010.
To prevent any Ruff Riding and for the fun and safety of the group, non-social pets are asked to stay at home.
