OK, I’m asking for trouble (or a whole lot of really random and inappropriate blog comments, which I will moderate) with the word “panties” in this post….

Panties are just one of the reasons you’ll want to swing by the LaunchPadINW space and Nectar Tasting Room next Wednesday, June 29, from 4-7pm ( so share this post, the EventBrite invitation, and/or the Facebook event with all your friends!). Here are some more reasons (and more explanation of the panties):

Poster for Pedal Panties: Underwear for extra comfort on your bike saddle that fits under regular clothes. Made in US.
Pedal Panties. You know you want 'em. Or need 'em.

They’ll Know You’re There

Spoke N Wheel Bike Bells: Customized by a mom in Los Angeles with fun phrases and 3D features like flowers and animals.

At last, the panties! Pedal Panties: Equally perfect under those Nuu-Muus or your buttoned-down office look.
