Awesome! Oregon bans the the use of cell phones while driving.

June 25, 2009

It frightens me how many people I see driving with a cell phone up to their ear as I ride my daily commute, and there’s definitely a lack of awareness with the majority of those drivers. This law can only help decrease unnecessary collisions – THANK YOU OREGON 🙂


Bike Lane to Go

June 24, 2009

I came accross this cool product over at the blog today and thought I would share. 


Lite Lane is a LED back light with additional High Visibility DPSS Green Lasers that project a bike lane onto the street around you.  The video on their website is pretty cool.  Check it out here:

How much would you pay for one of these things?

Showers Pass Cycling Team had a good showing at this year’s Urban Assault Ride in Portland, Oregon. Abra and her teammate won the women’s division. Debbie and Sue placed third (even with a car/bike incident). And Jacob and his teammate placed third in the men’s division. Big wheels, runt bikes, slip ‘n slides, plungers… no problem!

Welcome!!!! Thank you for finding us on the web.

Showers Pass was born from the desire to develop such technically innovative cycling gear that it would inspire more people to get out there and ride.  So who are we to take on such a challenge?  In a word, we’re athletes.  We play outside in Portland, Oregon, where we ride for fun, for competition, for transportation, for community.  We are creative innovators, constantly concerning ourselves with such things as finding the latest greatest fabric, or inventing the perfect zipper-pull.  We live by our drive to deliver that next truly inspiring piece of gear.  We hope you enjoy the result.
