Colorado Bike Law is an organization and racing team; “Our goal is to promote bicycle safety awareness, advocate bicycling interests, and serve as a resource of information for cyclists in need of legal assistance.” This is a great resource for all cyclists.

A friend and fellow courier, James Benitez, was also there selling his leather courier bags and cycling skid lids from his company, Santiago Leathercraft. His work is one of a kind, handcrafted goods you just don’t see anymore. He takes custom orders for any kind of bag. A few people at the Swap asked if he made bicycle seat bags, he’s thinking that’s his next project. Check it out here.
