Cannondale 10.1, Wow that's Fast!

SuperSix, at 10.1 pounds what is not to like, Cannondale has raised (or lowered) the bar. Seems like a no brainer and with the SRAM part list and hollowgram working together, you get a light, fast, stiff bike. Hey you want to ride like a factory rider well then pick one up, you will at least fit in with style, even if you still can't keep up.

POC, Ski Boots For Comfort!

Season is coming to an end, so what better time to buy new boots. The POC seems to eliminate the need to crank down on buckles, you have laces very similar to snowboarders boots. Not sure why this has not be thought of yet and this is just a concept but lets get real. I know snowboarding is relatively new and when it started wearing a good ld pair of Sorels would do the trick. The POC Tarsus boots eschews buckles for laces connected to a tension wheel you dial in for the perfect fit.

Marine Life Protection Act

TheSurfrider Foundation is currently working with a wide variety of individuals and organizations on the Marine Life Protection Act –or MLPA. The MLPA is a state law that requires establishing a “network” of marine protected areas along the California coastline. This law is currently being implemented in Southern California.

The Clean Water initiative is primarily focused on protecting water quality in coastal watersheds and in the near-shore marine environment. Consequently, the Surfrider Foundation advocates for strong water quality regulations, adequate marine recreational water quality monitoring, reporting and posting, reduction of polluted discharges into the ocean and education regarding personal responsibility for the reduction water pollution. We also support smart land use planning to ensure that coastal environmental resources are protected and healthy watersheds are maintained.
