Po Campo’s Bike Share Bag is designed to fit in a Divvy rack.

Here’s a terrific way to help us reel in the last few thousand dollars we need to resume publication, while scoring a great deal on a stylish, practical bike bag for yourself or someone you love. Po Campo, Chicago’s homegrown bike bag company, will be donating 50 percent of online sales of four different models to the Streetsblog Chicago Resurrection Fund this Monday through Wednesday, March 30 to April 1. Use the coupon code “Streetsblog CHI” and you’ll get 10 percent off your purchase of one of these four bags.

Click here to see Po Campo’s “StreetsblogCHI Collection.” The four bags, mostly named after Chicago neighborhoods, include the Loop Pannier, the Pilsen Crossbody Bag, the Logan Bike Trunk Bag, and the Bike Share Bag. The latter is a very handy item if you’re a frequent bike-share user – it allows you to maximize the carrying capacity of the front rack on a Divvy cycle, or any other Bixi bike-share vehicle.

Like all Po Campo bags, these models work great on or off the bike. They fasten securely to your ride, and they’re made of waterproof, vegan materials with reflective accents and handy pockets. But they’re also comfortable and classy enough to wear to a work function or a night on the town.

Po Campo owner Maria Boustead is an industrial designer who’s a longtime supporter of Steven and John’s transportation reporting projects. “As transportation bicycling enthusiasts, we rely on Streetsblog to keep us informed on how cities are transforming themselves to become more accommodating to transportation options other than cars,” she recently wrote. Read more from Maria about why she’s supporting our reboot effort on the Po Campo blog.

    I bought the Bike Share bag in Emerald so my honey will feel more comfortable and stylish riding the Divvy.

  • Sweet, I didn’t realize that the bike-share bag comes in another version than black. The emerald bag looks very sharp. You are going to score some major points with your S.O. Thanks again!
