The stylish, limited edition, Martone Cycling Co. commuter bikes celebrate the rights of our citizens to vote, and the power voting represents (especially since not too long ago, many American citizens ie. African Americans and women) did not have that right. Just in time for the presidential election and the upcoming inauguration, these red, white and blue bikes and the folks behind this three-yr-old cycling company encourage you to “pedal to the polls”.

“Personally I’ve been overcome by the excitement of the 2016 presidential election, and I could think of no better way to channel that passion than into the design of this capsule collection,” said Martone Cycling founder and designer, Lorenzo Martone. “When so much is at stake for our nation, the power of voting and what that freedom means resonates even more deeply.”
