The Cycling Jersey That is Changing the World

It's not often you find clothing that feels good to wear and does good in the world, too. But look no further, Andrew Gonzalez of Pillar Heights is challenging the apparel norm with his revolutionary Technical Hemp Cycling Jersey.

Features
• Men's and women's styles
• Long and short sleeve options
• Aerodynamic

• Naturally UV protective
• Designed to be functional for every ride, on every use
• Technical Hemp naturally regulates temperate to help you keep cool on hot, sunny days and warm in colder conditions
• Antibacterial properties of hemp help you maintain a fresh and clean feel
• Gym hook loop for quick and easy storing
• Versatile and timeless design
• Durable material
• Waterproof left pocket for safe storing of delicate belongings
• Material is quick drying
• Large center pocket to carry what you need with you, without the ungainly appearance that results from the use of side pockets
• Natural properties do not wash away (unlike chemical treatments on competitor products in the world of cycling apparel) which means you never lose the benefits from your Technical Hemp jersey products

Being a cyclist himself, Andrew knows firsthand the kind of nuisance issues that come up with the type of cycling apparel on the market. To him, riding a bicycle isn't just a way to get from point A to point B, but a lifestyle---whether you utilize a bike for your commute, as a means of exercise, or simply for pleasure. Naturally, he has become acutely aware of the many flaws in the type of gear available on the market for a cyclist. It became apparent over time that if he wanted the perfect cycling jersey, he would have to make it himself. And he did. He started with a prototype that has been perfected through trial and error, utilizing his knowledge of business and textiles---acquired over 10 years as the owner of Lucid Lifestyle, a brick and mortar (as well as online) sustainable apparel boutique with a storefront on the popular Whyte Avenue in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. During the last 4 years, being the entrepreneurial Canadian business owner that he is, Andrew fine-tuned his design and tested the product vigorously with the assistance of his team. To ensure the result was nothing less than the best jersey for your ride. He said his goodbyes to his successful business on Whyte Ave in order to pursue his passion---a cycling jersey that changes the world.

How? Using eco-friendly hemp as the base of his jersey design, which is not only easier on the environment than many alternatives but also ideal for performance, and doing good business right out of his neighborhood in Vancouver, British Columbia. Feeding the homeless, and going even further by donating to UNICEF in order to help children in developing countries, as part of his commitment to making the world a better place one day at a time. Pillar Heights is innovative at its core and looking to make products that have a place in a more ethical, sustainable future. As well as set out to prove that good business and a good conscious go hand in hand. If you've ever talked to Andrew Gonzalez, you know he's the kind of passionate, colorful, and driven individual necessary to see such an ambitious vision through.

  19. Cycling is quite an easy way to get rid of cellulite. During cycling there is a proper blood circulation which helps in reducing the cellulite. Also, the dry brushing technique work in the same manner.
