I really admire people who see a problem and address it with creativity and style. That’s the first thing I thought when I saw the URBANIST cycling chamois panties a few weeks ago. While wearing a sweaty chamois isn’t ideal for the female (or male) anatomy – bacteria growth, saddle sores, etc, I think they’re onto something… Back this Austin, Texas-based (holler) Kickstarter here.

This is why I love Manual for Speed!
“At 10:01 a.m. inline behind us at the Snowmass Village Starbucks we met the 2013 USA Pro Cycling Challenge Podium Girls: Candice Wurster and Courtney James.1 Courtney from Los Angeles, California drank an Iced Doppio With Half-&-Half and Candice from Fort Collins, Colorado drank an Iced Venti Unsweetened Passion Tea.
“We’re having a blast! We work with an agency called Umbrella Girls USA and we were selected by Medalist. We’ve done NASCAR, Moto GP, NHRA, Motocross and a lot of cycling events. We feel like we’ve made it now because this Medalist and USA PRO CHALLENGE event is the biggest event we’ve done so far. We haven’t done any weird jobs but we’ve met some weird people. Do we know about Peter Sagan? Yes! And yes we saw that picture and we know what he did. We would not let it happen to us though, we’d be like, “No way!” [At this point MFS interjects: “But he’s really fast, and he is a sprinter!” And then we all start laughing and pretending to dodge unsolicited Ass Grabs.]”
“We don’t think he’s ever going to do it again though.”

I had to share this:
“She-Devils PGH is a camp-tastic, genre-defying caper, about an all-female bicycle gang that cruise the streets of PIttsburgh, regulating the safety of their fellow female riders.
This short film begins following a typical day-in-the-life of the group, but takes a strange turn when the ladies witness a rogue car weaving along the road. They soon discover the car is inhabited by alien lifeforms and must band together to stop an impending alien attack.
Help support us in getting this film made through our Kickstarter campaign.”

I’ve been meaning to post this photo of Lauren and I that Jacob took a few weeks back in Austin. He really captured that magical moment of riding around town with your lady.
Oh and that #LightBro!

Developing a women’s bib short isn’t easy. As the team at Ten Speed Hero point out, “This is not a sock. This is not designed to fit all.” Female bibs made right. That’s what TSH was going for. 8mm chamois and a special cut for women, they’re designed to fit women and women only.
Pick up a pair at Ten Speed Hero. Might I add that I love their product shots?
