Design Inspiration – Up-cycled Race Numbers

It’s hard to throw away a race number. That high-contrast piece of Tyvek symbolizes a lot of work, preparation and the commitment you’ve made to your sport. Maybe you had a good result; maybe your goal was just to finish. Maybe things didn’t work out. But you made it to the starting line and pinned on a number and that means a lot. It means that you participated, be it a century, a bicycle or ski race, a 10K or something else.

It occurred to the clever folks at Elevengear that it would be very cool to be able to re-use these symbols of significant effort for a new and noble purpose. After several iterations they’ve come up with the “Race Number Cap”.

It takes five numbers to make a cap – five less numbers that will end up in the landfill. Send them your numbers and they’ll stitch up a memento that will look better on your head than tacked to the wall above your workbench. For more information about ordering click here.

Don’t forget, Friday is National Bike to Work Day. See you on the road!
