Point6, the U.S.-based maker of merino wool socks, sponsored the second edition of the Pedal the Plains tour, the annual three-day bike ride across south eastern Colorado, which was held this year on Sept. 20-22. The event is organized, among others, by the Colorado Tourism Office and The Denver Post. The route gives cyclists an opportunity to experience the culture, history and landscape of Colorado's plains communities. Point6 provided performance merino cycling socks for volunteers and sponsors. The company was also present along the race route with pro sales, giveaways and coupons for spectators and participants. Merino is said to be particularly suitable for cyclists, regardless of the climate, thanks to the natural temperature stabilizing properties of wool. Point6, whose socks are proudly “made in the USA,” uses 100-percent compact spun merino yarns and all Point6 cycling socks are engineered with minimal-to-no cushioning, for good performance and comfort during long rides.
