New Sponsor Spotlight: Terry Bicycles, Kitsbow and Tenkara USA

Terry Bicycles turned 30 this year, which is a huge milestone for this women-specific brand that's always put "female cyclists first." They offer a wide range of excellent products for women, including bicycles, clothing, accessories and saddles. Terry has graciously sent us two of them to give away: a FLX Gel from their performance line and a Butterfly Ti Classic for endurance/touring. And be sure to sign up here for their weekly email "Pro Deal Mondays" offer; you can receive up to 50% off on apparel and other goodies.

A relatively new company, Petaluma's Kitsbow launched their stylish line of mountain bike apparel for men and women two years ago. Employing a spare aesthetic with high-end materials, you can try their products yourselves if you win one of the (3) $50 gift certificates from Kitsbow!

My husband recently became obsessed with tenkara, or the Japanese method of fly fishing. All you need is a rod, line and fly -- there's no reel. (It's like the fixed gear bicycle of the fly fishing world!)  It's becoming more popular as bike campers and tourers are taking their set-ups with them when they hit the road, and Tenkara USA has sent us a fantastic starter kit with a retail value over $225: one of their nicest rods, the Satoa line holder; tapered linetippet spool; and some flies. Now one of you Sweepers can also get hooked on this simple beauty of this outdoor pursuit!
