Sea Otter Classic: 20 Years Old and Still Pedaling

After you've lived in Northern California for a while, as most Clif Bar employees have, there are certain things you look forward to each spring that make you appreciate life in such an exceptional place. Things like...the end of the rainy season or the completion of the Bay Bridge. Or perhaps the Celebrity Apprentice finale or the Potrero Hill Big Wheel race.

Most folks recognize the Montrail name as the leaders in performance trail running and hiking footwear. But, what some people might not realize as that Montrail also fields one of the best ultra running teams in the world. In fact, when I need to purchase a new pair of kicks, I simply phone them up and they have an athlete run them to me from their offices 5 miles up the road.

Mr. Jones goes to Washington

In an attempt to give representatives in congress a different view of global climate change, eight-time Big Mountain Snowboarder of the Year (and Team Clif Bar athlete) Jeremy Jones traveled to Washington last week to meet with key mountain states lawmakers, screen the short film Generations, and shred the infamous Nixon Chute on Capitol Hill.
