Outfitted in a 1967 VW Microbus, the Ryders Eyewear â€œVan to Vegasâ€ Road Trip takes the brand back to its grassroots origins — when carefree fun and boundless energy drove the dynamic product line to where it stands today. The eight-day epic will follow a loose itinerary to seven towns and cities, contingent upon the spontaneous missions and crazy shenanigans popping up along the way. Stops include: Seattle, WA, Hood River, OR, Bend, OR, San Francisco, CA, Santa Cruz, CA, Bakersfield, CA and Sin City.
This trip is entirely spread-sheet free. The three Ryders microbus noobs will be up for anything: beer pong, rope-swings, freeriding, skateboarding and cotton candy. If you see them on their trip, shake them down for some shwag, so long as you’re willing to push the Microbus for a timely compression start.
