Swobo Apparel

With bicycle touring, there is a fair amount of time spent off the bike. Maybe you’re stopping to top off on supplies at a store, or doing a bit of sight seeing between destinations. For this reason, it can sometimes be nice to have clothing that is not only comfortable and functional on the bike, but looks good off the bike as well.

Swobo has a great line of bike/casual wear (in both men’s and women’s cuts and colors) that does an excellent job of handling double duty. Many of their products are made with Merino Wool, which is comfortable and warm for fall and spring riding, in addition to early summer mornings. And, for the current cold conditions, they have a few base layers available for both your upper and lower body. Even their wool socks provide great comfort on and off the bike. For warmer summertime conditions, they offer a few jerseys with a polyester fabric to help keep you cool.

We have recently added Swobo to our list of member benefits, so be sure to give them a look.
