Treasure Island.

Pros, amateurs and spectators head to Treasure Island this Sunday to watch local talent kill it on their BMX while checking out awesome shops, eating favorite food trucks and drinking beer and wine.

If you want to participate, it’s $20 for amateurs and $25 for pros. You can win tons of cash and prizes, even your own wireless portable speaker!

 

 

Outsidelands + bicycles + Levi’s = fun.

Outside Lands is more than just a festival – it’s a lifestyle. This festy experience magnifies beyond the spicy guitar licks, booty shaking bass and stunning vocals, it’s meant to give you a taste of what San Francisco is in all of its glory. From recycled art, farmers markets, urban gardening and grubbing down with the local eateries, this experience wouldn’t be complete without our favorite mode of transportation – bicycles!

This year’s free bike valet will be provided courtesy of Levi’s, who will also be pimping your bike out with free tune-ups and bike washes as well! Levi’s recently released a very chill line of bicycle commuter wear (check out the line here) and they’re also hosting  “Golden Sprints” at the festival. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Golden Sprints, anyone who can ride a bike can participate. In a nutshell: you race on a stationary bike that are set up to gauge how far and fast you are, whoever goes the fastest for a certain amount of distance wins sweet prizes such as swag from Mission Bicycle Bompanybags from Mission Workshop, bikes from Globe and speakers from the best portable speaker company ever, yours truly.

DOPE RIGHT?! The races will be taking place in the Levi’s tent at Eco Lands this weekend so be sure to come and check it out! Spandex is highly encouraged.
