The SWITCH Program will be taking a winter hiatus until spring of 2015. The end of this week, October 18th, will mark the last day to turn in any gently used panniers you may have.
In keeping with the strides of sustainability & community outreach, all donated panniers that pass our inspection get turned over to the Community Cycling Center where the bags will then be used in CCC's 'Create a Commuter' program.
The 'Create a Commuter' program provides low income adults with a complete commuter kit (bike, helmet, lights, rack, lock and tools) to ensure a successful commute to work. All participants are required to take a 5 hour safe commuter and bike maintenance training course before hoping on their new ride.
Your gently used bike panniers are added as a wonderfully helpful perk to complete each kit. In return for your donation, SWITCH program participants receive 20% their next full priced North St. Bags purchase.
The SWITCH program has been one of our proudest community out reach projects and we are excited for it to return next spring! If interested in participating before 10/18, please contact us for the online promo code [ info @ northstbags.com

When you order your new bike pannier or convertible backpack pannier you’ll need to select the hook size that best fits your bike’s cargo rack. These hooks—two near the top of the pannier—slot over the horizontal tube(s) of the cargo rack and then a bottom hook on a bungee holds tension for a secure fit.
While it’s a simple system, one of the most common questions we get is: what’s the right hook size for my bike? Click to read more.
