Proud to see our lil’ community coming together with global efforts to protect those who serve.
Repost from @foxmtb

We’re all in this together. Medical staff around the world are under equipped and need eye protection, new or used, now. Fox is donating to #GogglesForDocs to provide goggles and N95 masks to the US health care workers on the front lines of the COVID-19 crisis. And you can too, visit #GoggleForDocs to help now.
#GogglesforDocs is an effort to get used or new goggles into the hands of healthcare workers who currently have no eye protection as they treat COVID-19 patients.

11 year old Hudson Loves racing OTH. This is one great way to spend the quarantine!

Happy birthday to the gang who saw a dream come true, and draws us all together. 🎂 Docent Brewing

Three years ago to the date!
Weird way to spend your birthday- but we brewed a beer to commemorate this day! While we wish we could raise one with you, we are still pouring it to go. It’s a Triple IPA, cuz why not, called “Third I”
Tiki cocktail vibes from Strata, Citra + Nelson hops. Enjoy this weekend, cheers from a safe distance. Thank you for your continued support. We wish everybody well! It’s our party we’ll cry if we want to.

Times are stressful for everyone. Take some time to get outside and exercise. Specialized has a great sale on bikes at your local dealer. #supportsmallbusiness #iamspecialized @lagunacyclery @iamspecialized
