When you sew some tow straps but aren't sure how strong they are you give them to @escapevelocitycycles to test out. Verdict : pretty damn strong , but not stronger than Benny's 5.0L Ranger

Not always on my bike, but always on some logging road.

Usually I wake up to the sound of garbage trucks/ people screaming / street brawls/ bottles breaking/ the sound of the #20 bus (and all sounds associated with it) . This was a nice change of pace. πŸ‘Œ

Bushwhacking through ancient overgrown roads is alright when you finally end up on trails like this πŸ‘Œ

Keats Island, you're pretty cool ✌️Nice mellow one nighter from Van-Keats. Lots of wrong turns and pushing up roads that haven't been touched in ages, and a perfectly empty provincial park at the end!

Over at @localmfg we're super stoked to announce the first RE//DO event in collaboration with @melissarawsea .
.
Sunday , March 5th @theamericanvancouver we will be on site, IN PERSON, with our sewing machines offering garment/gear repairs on a donation basis!!
.
.
What else? Well Melissa will be hosting TWO garment repair workshops on a drop-in basis, AND we'll be having a clothing swap (bring a thing take a thing)
.
Oh, also... BEER! Duh!
.
So gather up all your torn jeans and broken bags and haul them down to @theamericanvancouver , get them repaired on the spot! Have a pint and learn how YOU can fix things yourself, and maybe walk away with some new-to-you items !!
.
Death to fast fashion. If it's broke - fix it. The lifespan of your garments is WAY longer than you think. Think how much money you'll save not buying new clothing all the time ( Beer money!!) or whatever...
.

SEE YOU THERE!!
.
Any questions, just ask!
