The Story Behind the Jersey: Limited Edition CLIF Cycling Jersey, Honoring the Late Clif Erickson

Way back in 1990, I went on a 175-mile bike ride with my buddy, Jay. In preparation for the ride, we packed six energy bars for the ride—the only energy bar on the market at the time. At mile-120 we made it to the top of Mt. Hamilton, but we realized that we still had a lot of road ahead of us. Tired and famished, I pulled the last energy bar out of my pack, but as hungry as I was, I just couldn’t bring myself to eat it. In that moment I couldn’t help but ask myself “What if energy bars were delicious?” The minute I asked the question, I realized that I could make something better—an energy bar that tasted great, was made with all-natural ingredients and that could help get me through my long rides. It was an epiphany moment and I decided to follow the inspiration.

To commemorate the 20th anniversary of that epiphany moment I had at the top of Mount Hamilton and to honor the love and support my dad gave me as I started and grew Clif Bar & Company, I designed this limited edition CLIF Cycling Jersey. I wear this jersey on my long rides knowing that my dad is still cheering me on.

Eat your heart out, Bobby Flay. We’ve had more than a dozen Clif Bar & Company participants and a panel of Clif volunteer judges. After after the judging, we put the remainder of cupcakes up for donation to the rest of the company with all proceeds going toward the AIDS Walk San Francisco. Looks like we’ve raised over $400 in total.

The Throwdown featured two key ingredients. The first, lavender. And the second...ready for this? Bacon! Yes, bacon cupcakes. Balancing sweet and salty vaulted creativity to its finest.
