Know what happens when you pedal all over the place? You get hungry. Enter the Snackhole from Makeshifter Canvas Works: strap it to your handlebars and tuck in some tasty goodies (or your phone or sunglasses or whatever else you’d like to keep close by). It’s handcrafted from water-repellent waxed canvas with pretty wool details. Plus, insulated walls mean your coffee will stay hot—or your beer cold. $75 at


If your bum is bummed, book it to the saddle library at Gladys Bikes, a lendable lineup of seats you can test out till you find your perfect match. When you buy, the $25 borrowing fee counts toward the price of your new saddle. $25 at Gladys Bikes


The easiest way to add some flair to your cycling getup? Brightly colored, geometric patterned socks from the Athletic. The company launched in 2013 with a PDX airport carpet sock, and now boasts socks inspired by other notable carpets, from The Shining to Sea-Tac (and also plenty of non-flooring-related designs). From $15 at the Athletic

Warm Up

They look like misshapen oven mitts, but Stormbreaker Pogies keep your digits toasty and dry through Portland’s soggy spring. Upcycled from scraps of technical fabric, they’re cozier than gloves and work on flat or drop handlebars. $55 at
