2016 Holiday Production Schedule and Ordering Deadlines

Ordering a special gift for the holidays? We can still guarantee delivery by December 23rd on lots of items!

First up, if you live in Philly and/or are planning on picking up your order at the shop, we will be open from 10-6 M-F leading up to the Holiday weekend. Simply order any "In the Shop" bag or anything from the "Accessories" section NOT marked as "Build Your Own....", and you can pick it up right away.

If you need something shipped, you'll be happy to know that bags from the "In the Shop" section are already made and ready to go! We ship bags FedEx ground by default, so simply find your location and transit time from the following map, and add ONE MORE DAY. you will have up to midnite on that day to order. For example, if you live in NYC, transit time is listed as one day. Add the day for processing/dropoff to FedEx, and you have up till midnite (EST) on Wednesday. This will put your package in your hands sometime Friday, December 23rd. We can do expedited shipping if necessary, but you absolutely must contact us first to set this up! If there are ANY questions about this, feel free to give us a call at 215-625-2987 before ordering. We very much want to make sure your gifts are delivered on time.

If you are looking for any of the "Made to Order" bags or a custom graphic bag at this point, you're pretty late to the game, but feel free to contact us at 215-625-2987 and check if it's possible. There will definitely be rush fees and expedited shipping fees, but there just might be a chance!

If you are ordering an accessory to be shipped, we use USPS Priority Mail. You can order any predetermined color way or "Build Your Own" accessory up until 10 am (EST) Tuesday morning, and it will arrive by the weekend.

Again, if you have any questions whatsoever, please feel free to contact us at 215-625-2987 so we can make sure we are all on the same page about delivery options. Thanks, and Happy Holidays from R.E.Load!

R.E.Load April Fools Fun Ride 2016


It's time once again for the most fun bike event of the year! The 12th iteration of the legendary R.E.Load April Fools Fun Ride is set to take place on Saturday, April 9th, and promises a ton of crazy mini-events and general partying while riding to spots all around the city. Unlike the average alley cat race, our format rewards having fun and just a little bit of luck, rather than pure speed and tactics. We welcome all riders! Whether you're a seasoned messenger, commuter, weekend warrior, or just have a bike you can borrow for a day, we guarantee you'll have a blast.

Prizes will be running deep and will include a ton of custom R.E.Load gear, as well as goodies from our friends both local and around the globe. Although the event is open to all age, please be aware that there will be some stops at bars, and the after party is 21+.

12th Annual April Fools Fun Ride
Saturday, April 9th
Registration at 1pm
Ride starts at 2pm, ends at 6pm
Start is at Penn Treaty Park
After party TBA

Changes to our Standard Bags

We've made a small change to our standard setup. We are now offering a Tri-Pocket feature on our bags and are making it the default option for standard setups. We have found the Tri-Pocket to be a more useful, unobstructed storage option over the organizer, allowing you to isolate medium sized items with easier access.
For a look at other options that we offer on our Made To Order bags, you can head on over to our Features page.
