I stopped in at SoupCycle to deliver a pair of pogies to Nate yesterday. SoupCycle has been delivering soup by bicycle to Portlanders since 2008 and has just expanded to other cities! 

It's hard to keep your hands warm and dry when biking and when you do business by bike, out in the elements every day, it's that much more important to take care of your digits. 

I'm hoping to get pogies to more businesses by bicycle, so they can keep on doing what they do!

Plans are in the works to sell at some bike shops around Portland, get them on the handlebars of people who do business by bicycle and provide them to everyone else who need warm, dry hands in the wintertime!
