Peddler Brewing Co at timbuk2 seattle miir pint glass

Our Seattle store, and its crazy cast of characters turned 1 year old in last month! Thinking about what we could do that would not be just another birthday party, we sauntered down to Albert’s favorite burger joint, Lil’ Woody’s to conjure up some ideas. If y’all are in Seattle, you know this spot is [...]

Now Riding Denver

Confluence Park, Denver

There’s a lot to love about Colorado: insane biking culture (from Denver Cruisers to USA Pro Challenge), one of the longest (and best) ski seasons in the country, appreciation for hearty food (to fill post-ride bellies, like our neighbors Euclid Hall), craft beer culture, and a ground swell of loyal Timbuk2 fans, it is probably no surprise to hear [...]

Riding Minneapolis

Minneapolis is America’s number one biking city, but I didn’t really believe it until I rode the city myself this weekend. It was 75 degrees and sunny with a light breeze and there were bikes everywhere! Dedicated bike lanes, massive, glowing signs encouraging drivers to “Share the Road,” traffic-calmed streets, pleasant, wandering riverside bike paths, [...]
