Spotlight on Sponsors: Pushbike
Pushbike is a relatively new shop in the city that caters to a niche market, stocking both stylish and functional cycling wear. Located at 24th and Treat St. in the Mission district, the shop shares a space with Mission Skateboards and offers an inviting atmosphere and unique array of hand-selected jerseys, caps, bags, shoes, and much more. The shop is decorated with amazing vintage posters and cycling memorabilia, and is well worth a visit just for that. Pushbike is very customer-service oriented; you're likely to be offered a cup of tea upon arrival, and owner Sarah has, on multiple occasions, simply picked up the phone and made a call to find an out-of-stock or hard-to-find product. In addition to being a rad shop with rad products, Pushbike also reaches out to the local cycling community through shop barbecues, art shows, film viewings, and a bi-weekly "Ladies Only" ride that is friendly to all skill levels and all types of bicycles. San Francisco's cycling community is lucky to have such a great shop within its reach! You can follow the shop's product news and other happenings on their blog, but you'll have a better time if you stop by and see for yourself what this amazing shop has to offer!
