Proudly bearing the title of the "Bicycle Capital of America," Davis boasts an extensive bike infrastructure, a bike-friendly culture, and a mild climate that invites cycling all year round. The city offers many routes through flat lands, farmlands, and scenic vineyards. We recommend our breathable and flexible jersey range for these journeys.

The Springwater Corridor and the Historic Columbia River Highway are just a few routes cyclists can take to explore the picturesque landscapes of the Pacific Northwest. In addition, our waterproof jackets are an excellent choice for Portland's occasional showers.

The desert city of Tucson is an all-year cycling haven, offering over 700 miles of bike paths and lanes. The Loop, a continuous trail system, offers stunning views of the Sonoran Desert and the Catalina Mountains. Given the sunny climate, we recommend our UV-protective gear and high-wicking base layers.
