Clubride's clothing is the "why didn't I think of that" of casual cycling wear. Founder Mike Herlinger is a feet-on-pedal cyclist that knew what he wanted. After finishing another great ride on some of Sun Valley, Idaho's epic, local singletrack and basking in the post-ride afterglow, he realized he was running late and needed to get back to town to meet some friends at the local watering hole for a burger and some cold beers.
Moment of decision: take the extra time to run home and change, or turn heads at the restaurant in his Lycra kit.
Opting for the wardrobe change, he arrived at home to ditch the Lycra and don more suitable attire. When he grabbed one of his well-loved, vintage Western shirts, he had an idea. How cool would it be if I could just ride in this shirt?
From that simple question, Club Ride was born and has been built on the conviction that cycling apparel can be both technical and stylish.

At the age of four, Shane Cooper arrived in the United States from England. His father distributed knitting machines. In the late 1960's, there was a lot of knitting happening in the Eastern United States. Shane grew up around knitting machines, but he was always more interested in bicycles and music. It wasn't until the early 1990's that Shane decided to turn his attention entirely toward knitting. He embarked on an entirely new way to knit socks. He found it, and he was able to create sock designs the world had never seen.
Sometimes the smallest items can have the biggest impact on your ride, Defeet socks are just that.
