Buy a signed copy of my book and some cool stickers from our brand new shop

For the first time ever, Seattle Bike Blog has a merch shop!

This all started when I decided I should figure out a way to sell copies of my book Biking Uphill in the Rain directly, and then that project spiraled out of control and turned into the Seattle Bike Blog Shop. Once I realized I was going to create a whole shop, I also finally created a sticker I have been tossing around in my head for a long time:

Black and white sticker that says I, logo of a person biking up a hill in the rain, Seattle.

I have resisted opening a merch shop for a few reasons, but I finally invested in setting up a proper shipping center so that I can efficiently process orders and get them in the mail without running around looking for boxes or standing in long lines at the post office. Selection is currently limited on purpose. I want the shop to have items that are unique, but I also want to prioritize supporting our work. I don’t want you all to spend your money on Seattle Bike Blog merch where most of the money goes to some third party company because I know most of you are buying it at least in part as a way to support this site. I also don’t want boxes of t-shirts all over my house. So while I do have plans for some more fun things to add as we go forward, the shop will grow slowly.

On that note, I would love to hear your ideas for merch in the comments below. Or you can email me at [email protected]. I am also very interested in speaking with any local makers or businesses who want to collaborate. Also, please let me know if you run into any issues.

    This is not feedback for your merch shop, but I wanted to let you know how grateful I am that you’ve decided to see your book in Kindle format. It’s important, or even crucial for me to be able to read on a tablet/laptop, where I can customize the font size and background colour to be easy on my eyes, and while Amazon isn’t my favourite reading platform, I can now purchase and read your beloved book without straining my eyes. Thank you.

    I’d totally buy a t-shirt. Also, loved the book!

    The sticker should look good on the back of the trailer I just ordered to haul my toddler around fun excursions in Portland.

    I’m loving the calendar down here full of inclusive social rides at shift2bikes.org, anyone planning a visit should definitely check it out.
