Bike Jackets save bikes
“How many drivetrains must a woman ruin before she learns to cover her bike when traveling. How many long drives I’ve taken in the snow, sleet, rain and pouted for my poor tortured bike. I feel so much better with a Bike Jacket protecting my 2 wheeled queen. I’m not a handy person and I am able to fully cover my bike in 2 minutes. It’s sooo easy! Then I don’t have to spend an hour cleaning it the night before a race or when I get home after a long adventure filled weekend.” Leia Schneeberger, Polar Roll Champion 2019 and epic 2019 IceMan 3rd place dark horse finisher.
Snow, salt, dust, and water are bad for your bike. Protect your bike like you protect yourself: with a jacket. Bike Jacket bicycle covers keeps your investment safe from the elements when it’s on your bike rack traveling down the road. Fat bikes are especially important to protect because they are exposed to lots of road salt while being transported. Handcrafted in the USA with durable, cold-hardy materials, Bike Jacket zips securely onto your bike, protecting key components. It’s easy to use and durable – fitting both tray and hanging style racks.
Bike Jackets was started by bike riders from Wisconsin who love clean bikes but hate to clean them. So we designed a bike cover that keeps your bike clean while cruising on the back of your vehicle.
Protect your two-wheeled investment. Corroded chains, stuck cables, and pitted disc brakes wreck your ride and your bike. Bike Jacket bicycle cover is an easy, simple way to protect your bike from the elements that could damage it.
Stop salt damage. Since salt is difficult to wash off in the winter, it sits on your bike and corrodes everything it touches. Cables stop working, disc brakes rust and bearings lock up. A Bike Jacket bicycle cover is the best solution.
Avoid road crud. Bikes are often on the back of a car being transported somewhere else. Ever wonder why your bike is so dirty after being on the car? And driving along the road less traveled can be great—but what dirt and gravel do to bike components is no good.

It’s all about community.
While a lot of races out there are run by for-profit companies, that’s not the case for Marji Gesick, Polar Roll and The Crusher. All of our events are productions of the 906 Adventure Team, a 501(c)3 whose mission is to empower people to become the best version of themselves through outdoor adventure. We don’t have a large staff of people (two, to be exact) or significant overhead, and that enables us to donate a significant portion of race revenues in two ways:
- Since 2015, we’ve given back more than $125,000 to the trail-builders of RAMBA, NTN, Sisu Dirt Crews, WinMan and the DCNT.
- We also support youth adventure programs in three communities, investing over $35,000 this year alone in equipment, training, and gear to remove barriers for all kids. Our summer and after-school programs now have over 350 participants, and spots fill up as quickly as Marji Gesick. There is a need we’re trying to fill: to connect kids with their communities and get them off devices.
