C5 Gore-Tex Shakedry 1985 Jacket - Men's by Gore Wear
One of the greatest revolutions in cycling clothing was the release of Gore Bike Wear's Giro jacket, over 30 years ago. It completely changed our perception of cold and wet weather cycling gear. Soon, days spent blocking out the rain with unbreathable rain capes having us almost as soaked underneath from sweat were gone.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
