Felt Bicycles was founded in California, a land of pioneers, entrepreneurial mavericks, technology-driven mavens, and the most passionate outdoor fanatics you’ll find anywhere. We love our home state, and we’re so grateful for all that it brings to our lives, as well as to those who dwell within its landscapes. Its vast network of roads, trails, scenic byways, and picturesque highways is worth celebrating and protecting, and it’s meant to be shared with as many people as possible. That’s why we aim to do our part in helping more folks discover the joys of cycling through educational programs, while at the same time bettering California’s infrastructure for bicycle commuters, cycling enthusiasts, and anyone else who wants to experience the joy of two wheels.
We’ve partnered with the California Bicycle Coalition on their Bike Plate Campaign, a program that will raise millions of dollars for bicycle education and encouragement programs. How’s that, you ask? By working with the state of California to join the 23 other states who allow motor vehicles to show their support for bicycling on their car’s license plate.
Here’s the catch: the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) will only issue the new bike-theme plate after 7,500 people have placed pre-orders for it. After that, it’ll be made available to everyone whenever they register their car each year. So what are you waiting for? Pre-order your new plate at the link below.

Play Sports Group, publisher of Global Triathlon Network (GTN), has announced its selection of Felt Bicycles as the media organization’s new official bike partner for its GTN channel.

A cyclocross bike is ideally suited for going fast on a racecourse, while a gravel bike is best for all-day adventures over mixed terrain. But what separates these two types of bikes in terms of different riding experiences? And can’t you just have one of the two types of bikes to use for both gravel and cyclocross?
