San Diegan entrepreneurs know how to take advantage of the excellent climate and geographical terrain available to them. “Sporting-goods manufacturers employ about 3,400 people in San Diego and Riverside counties, and pay annual wages of $190 million, according to state data.”

These manufacturers include San Diego’s growing number of bicycle manufacturers who produce between between “2,000 to 100,000 frames per year.” Brands include Electra and Ellsworth Handcrafted Bikes.

The most perfect setting

flickr_protorio There is this city that has perfect weather for 350 days every single year. The remaining 15.25 days usually has a few droplets of rain or temperatures that climbs into the unforgivable 80 degree Fahrenheit range. The 350 days of the year is neither too hot, nor too cold. Not too wet, nor too dry. It is simply perfect. Where is this magical place?

Why it is San Diego of course. Every single day has the most perfect weather. Every day is a perfect excuse to ride.
