Limited Edition WTB Volt For Red Cross

by editors on November 17, 2017

The Northern California wildfires hit close to home for many cyclists, especially those at WTB. In an effort to aid those who lost so much, WTB will be donating $15 to the American Red Cross for every limited edition Team USA Volt saddle that is purchased. Here’s what WTB says:

The Volt is our most popular mountain saddle. Its medium level of padding thickness compliments subtle curves and a melange of popular features from several of our saddles. This saddle has enough padding for all day riding comfort yet scant enough weights for XC competition, gaining it endless acclaim and popularity among riders.

This is your opportunity to support a worthy cause and give back to your community while getting a great limited edition saddle. Click the link for more.

Cyclist Who Flipped Off Trump Fired

by editors on November 6, 2017

Our favorite bird flipping cyclist, Juli Briskman, has reportedly been fired from her job at Akima, according to a story in the Washington Post.

On Halloween, after Briskman gave her bosses at Akima LLC, a government contracting firm, a heads-up that she was the unidentified cyclist in the photo, they took her into a room and fired her, she said, escorting her out of the building with a box of her things. . . “I wasn’t even at work when I did that,” Briskman said. “But they told me I violated the code of conduct policy.”

We’re guessing it will be the best thing that ever happened to her.  Congrats, Juli. Looks like you’ll have even more time to ride your bike now. And after all, that is the goal.
