DuVine Launches First Bike Jersey into Spaceby Bike tour guru
Space, the final frontier, or is it?
Here at DuVine, we hold true to our mission - no detail too small, no surprise too extraordinary, no nuance too subtle - and now, add to that, no destination too unreachable, whether it be a bicycle tour or adventure travel experience.
That's right, we have launched the first bike jersey into space - boldly going where no cycling jersey has gone before - offering a new perspective, an unforgettable experience, an adventure of a lifetime and, in essence, a metaphor for DuVine style.
To make this vision possible, we partnered with Space For All, a business run by a group of space enthusiast university students in central Illinois. Space for All describes themselves as both an idea and a service. The idea: everyone wanted to be an astronaut at some point in their childhood, and most are still fascinated by outer space. The service: launching items of commercial or sentimental value to near-space to give everyone a piece of that childhood dream.
On the morning of Friday, November 25th crews arrived to a launch site at a lakeside park in Springfield, IL. Over the course of two hours, they engaged in pre-flight procedures for testing their electronics and ensuring a properly balanced payload. At 12:50 CST, the jersey and photographic equipment, connected with a large custom aluminum superstructure, were launched from the site using a helium balloon (the size of a small car) towards the edge of space.
And voila, DuVine Adventures launches the first bike jersey to space; dispatching a dream and celebrating the spirit of adventure - DuVine style. We go above and beyond to deliver unforgettable experiences.
Houston we have lift off...one small step for bike touring!
Where will your next adventure take you?
