Did you know that the Bike Mustache is a traveling art project?

Back in July, Russ and I sold all of our stuff and left our home in Long Beach, CA to cycle around the US (and, hopefully, beyond). After many short bicycle tours, we decided to finally head out for the long term. After four and a half months on the road, I can tell you... touring on bike is the way to go!

While we're traveling, we're also keeping up our respective professions. Russ is a photographer and is shooting amazing images along the way. I am a metalsmith, so I have a front pannier packed with tools and materials, so that I can create on the road.

Which means that the Bike Mustache is being made in campgrounds, hotels, and spare rooms around the country!

I'll keep posting photos here of all the crazy places that I get to work - and you can also follow our journey at

Share your Bike Mustache love!

Hi everyone! I'd really like to start collecting photos of Bike Mustaches "in action." If you want to share photos of your mustache mounted to your bike, send them to me (I set up a whole new email account just for this purpose... bikemustache AT gmail DOT com). I'll post them here (and might have the opportunity to share them in a potential book project). Thanks!!

Welcome to the Bike Mustache blog!

Hello dapper peoples around the world! Isn't it about time that the Bike Mustache have its own proper home in the internet world?!

New to the Bike Mustache? Think of it as a wonderfully whimsical way to make your bicycle stand out from the crowd! Each Bike Mustache is hand-crafted, by me, out of copper (or sterling silver, if you'd prefer), to be adhered to your bike frame. They are all unique and they are all fun! And you can get yours here.
