We are loving the fact that our lifelong love of all things bicycling has now caught on with the wider audience. It means so much more bike themed fun and games for us. Proof of this is epitomized in the latest and possibly one of the hottest pop-ups to hit London this summer – the Levi's Commuter Workspace.
For the month of August, Levi’s is welcoming members of the public to its very own Commuter Workspace in Shoreditch. The pop-up will offer a place for commuters to gather, connect, tune up and work together. There’ll be free coffee, free Wi-Fi , local artist collaborations, free instructional workshops and free repair services provided by local bike mechanics.
Levi’s® is also teaming up with select brands to create complementary, limited edition accessories. Included in this is Brooks England who will help to co-create limited edition Cambium saddles produced from donated Levi’s® denim.
These will be exclusively available to each Workspace, each saddle will be crafted upon the Cambium C17, which uses vulcanized rubber pressing techniques to create a comfortable, waterproof and long-lasting saddle whose features align with the performance benefits of the Levi’s® Commuter™ collection.
Those that donate denim at the Workspace will be entered into a raffle to win one of the custom saddles, as well as receive a promo code for 20% off a pre-order the saddles directly from Brooks.’
