We are delighted to announce that once again we will be attending Dominion RiverRock, the greatest outdoor lifestyle festival in the Southeast and quite possibly in the world! After attending for our first time last year, we wouldn’t miss it for anything — the Southern hospitality of Richmond, VA, the contagious enthusiasm on Brown’s Island, and the incredible artist line-up get better and better each year!

Osprey Starts off Bike Month in the Big Apple

‘Tis the season to celebrate two wheels! May is National Bike Month, and there was no better way to kick it off than with the The Bike New York event this past weekend, supported by sponsor and dear friends of ours, Eastern Mountain Sports and the NYC Department of Transportation.

New York commuters and individuals from around the world came to Pier 36 to check out the latest trends and to prep themselves with gear for their ride in the 35th Annual Five Boro Bike Tour in which the cyclists overrun the streets of New York and visit the cities that make up the surrounding areas of the Big Apple. Over 30,000 riders participated in the Sunday ride!

Take a minute to check out some photos and highlights from the trip above.

**We would like to highlight the third picture on the right, this here is Randy. Randy had never heard of Osprey and as a native of New York. Randy spends all her time commuting on her bike, getting from point A to point B throughout the city. Randy had a pack with little support for her back and the necessary things she carried on her commute. Randy told our sales rep, George (in photo) “if you can fit all the things I carry, including the old pack, in this Momentum 34, I will buy it on the spot.” Well, truth be told, George did so, and Randy was welcomed to the Osprey family with open arms!

Packing in the Streets of… Portland!

Osprey's social media mavens, Anna and Emily of Under Solen, get silly at the Portland's Saturday Farmers Market.

When summer hits in Portland, there are plenty of reasons to pull yourself out of bed early. The city’s bustling farmers market is one of our favorites. Keep the pack empty to fill with fresh goodness, throw a reusable mug full of coffee into your side pocket and you’re ready to go.
