In just over a week we will be celebrating Memorial Day in remembrance of the men and women who have served in the United States Armed Forces. In honor of Memorial Day, which also marks the beginning of summer for many, I have curated some of the amazing American made products that are available thanks to the entrepreneurial freedom we enjoy.
With my busiest travel season ahead and sunshine on my mind, I’ve selected some amazing products for the Cycling Traveler. Whether around town, across the city, or a trek much farther these are some of the fine accessories and equipment to be sure you bring along.
The bicycles are especially exciting for me to share because they are crafted by an incredibly talented man in Brooklyn, NY who I had the pleasure of meeting not too long ago. He possesses a level of skill that is truly spectacular. To build bicycles like the ones made by Benjamin Cycles requires a balance of math, science, and fine design. Last time Blair and I were in New York, he allowed me to try my hand at welding- let’s just say you won’t see me wielding a welding gun too often!
Wishing you safe travels wherever the road, tracks, waves or skies take you, Hayley
