I have participated at the local, national and international level. If I'm not out riding I'm probably out hiking in the mountains.

I have been using the Motorex Bike Clean for a while now and I couldn't be happier. The 2L refill is great! Save the original spray bottle or use your own, either way make sure to fill it with this bike clean refill!

I recently purchased this to use for skiing. I really needed something to keep my neck/face warm on the lift ride up and this did the trick. Next think you know I use it anytime I'm outside for a extended period of time.

I would highly recommend this to anyone who spends time outside in the winter!

I bought these as a gift for my girlfriend but have feedback to share. She was looking for a pair of split shorts for longer summer runs. These are lightweight, with a comfortable waistband and a small pocket in the back (which is great for a house key or a credit card). Her only wish is that they came in a smaller size. For reference, she's 5'4", 108lbs and ordered a size small. They're just a bit big around the waist. However, she highly recommends these to any runner! Great product.

I gifted these to my girlfriend but have feedback to share. She was looking for a sandal to wear with sundresses, and found the perfect pair. Birkies provide all day comfort, which is hard to find in a summer sandal! They've got great support, and can be dressed up or down depending on the look you're going for. You will not regret spending the money on these. Hands down, they're go-to summer sandal.

I bought these for my girlfriend, but have feedback to share. She's been running in Brooks Glycerine for years, and usually purchases a new pair a few times a year. Per usual, Brooks does not disappoint! The Glycerine 16 are a high quality road shoe with maximum comfort. However, she's not a huge fan of the material/design on the front/toe of the shoe. It is a lot of fabric compared to the older styles, which seemed to be more sturdy. She's hoping these hold up as well as her previous pairs!

I bought these for my girlfriend, but have feedback to share. She's been running in Brooks for years, but wanted to try a new brand. After experiencing some knee pain, and decided to test out a more supportive road shoe (she usually runs in a neutral, cushion shoe). I've heard nothing but great remarks about them since! She highly recommends them, but suggests going a half size because they run large. She usually wears 8 in Brooks, and is running happily in a 7.5. They're a great road shoe, with enough support and cushion to get you through the miles.

I gifted these to my girlfriend for hiking in the warmer months. Yes, they're a men's sock but she loves them. She not only wears them to hike, but also for running. They're lightweight and perfect for activities that you need a little ankle coverage, but don't want to get hot. She also wears them with ankle boots in cooler weather, and had only requested more since buying them. Would rank them a 10/10! You'll never go back to wearing other socks. For reference, she's a women's 7.5 and wears the men's medium.

I bought it thinking it would be a good shoe just for running around casual and it exceeded my expectation. I bought these shoes as an alternative for nike and van like style shoes that I have been unpleased with. If you constantly fear of the outsole detaching from the rest of the shoe like me, then these are the shoes for you. I have yet to seen any give and I have wore them to ride my dirt bike, gone to the fair, and even concerts.

This sweatshirt is my favorite thing to put on after a long day of work when tuckered out. However, this bad boy is even better in the morning on my days off with a cup of joe. I wear a size medium shirt, but to make it truly cuddly I purposely bought an XL one. I have only found one thing strange about this product.

That being, that there is a corduroy or of similar material that goes from the bottom of the sweatshirt to the armpit and continues to the end of each sleeve. I did not see this part in the picture provided. Still like the sweatshirt though.

I got this tire to replace the rear tire on my Pivot Mach 5.5. It has the perfect amount of traction for braking on steep downhills but without being so bulky it slows you down on the climb up. I went with this beefier version of the Rekon as I flatted the standard Rekon. I wanted to see if this would offer more protection and if for sure does! However, it does add a little bit more weight to my bike. If you're not too concerned with adding a bit of weight to your bike I would highly recommend this tire!

I have always used dish soap to clean my bikes until now. This is so much easier! Just spray it on, wait a few minutes and wipe it off with a wet sponge and after another quick rinse you are good to go!

Will be using this going forward!

I won't lie....these are my first bib liners. I have always used my typical bib shorts for under my baggies but I could feel the heat radiating from my legs. That is why I wanted to give these a try. I was pleasantly surprised with these liners. They are very breathable! The chamois seemed a little short in the front, however once you get in the riding position they felt great. They even have a fly for when nature calls on the trail! I've ridden in these for a little over 2 hours on a few rides and they did the job great! I will be purchasing more of these no doubt! The pockets on the back are perfect for a phone or flat kit. I love that I was able to carry everything I needed on the ride without using a pack or strapping stuff to my frame. I would highly recommend these to anyone!
