Portrait of my grandfather : 80 and still cycling from Florent Piovesan on Vimeo.

When we were kids, having a bike meant we could go places. It didn’t matter if it was school or to a friends house. Having a bike meant freedom, freedom to do things and explore our world. And while we all grow up (and drive cars), for some that passion for what cycling means never goes away. Benjamin Piovesan knows this intimately as he still rides as much as possible while nearing 80 years old. So to celebrate his life and his embracing all that is cycling, his grandson Florent Piovesan crafted him a present. Check it out here.

Ah, the waffle weave. Looks cool, feels great, reminds us of toasted Eggos. You’ve seen them before–probably in a fancy store or hotel–but Parachute’s brand new Waffle Towels are different. They’re spun using innovative Aerocotton Technology, which basically means they’ll be dry by the time your significant other finally gets out of the shower and realizes you stole their towel. Parachute’s Waffle Towels come in two sizes and two neutral colors. Plus, their 100% cotton construction means they start soft and only get softer with time. Even Kevin McCallister would approve.
