Welcome to the New Osprey Bike Blog!

As you may have heard, here at Osprey we love bikes. We love to ride them, we love to talk about them, and we love to build packs that facilitate a two-wheeled lifestyle. Which is why we thought it only fitting to launch our very own bike blog.

We’re here to make sure you’re inspired to live the two-wheeled lifestyle, be that on your commute, bombing down a mountain, touring the backroads of the West or simply just out for an afternoon jaunt.

We’ll have guest blogger posts, regular contests, cool bike stats, profiles on non-profits and daily bits of cycling inspiration.

See something that should be on here? Drop us a line. Use #ospreybike on Twitter, holler on Facebook or shoot us an email at blog[at]ospreypacks[dot]com.

Thin is In?

img_1188In the case of some San Juan ice climbing, that’s the truth…. Here’s a pic of Whorehouse Hose, above Silverton. (Thank you to San Juan Mountain Guides blog) Usually shaded, this route had a couple of parties on it 12-30, and the link below to San Juan Mountain Guides blog has more on its conditions. The Ames Ice Hose is in and has been climbed many times, as of 12-30, according to Damon Johnson’s blog. He reports that the first pitch is fatter than usual… Here’s a pic of Bridalveil on 12-30… Stairway to Heaven, up the county road from Silverton toward Animas Forks, has a lot of snow on it. (This pic is from Damon’s blog)
Southwest Colorado was hammered with a Christmas storm, and it’s warming up quite a bit. Our guess is that things will phatten up by the time the Ouray Ice Fest rolls into town on Jan. 8-12. The Osprey Variant 37 would be the pack to bring to the Ice Park…. img_0010147_328_lg


Whether your pack was purchased in 1974 or yesterday, Osprey will repair any damage or defect for any reason free of charge.
