Hazel AF: Biking with Fierce Freedom
Seth Davidson: Cycling to Self Discovery. His journey embodies all that is Fierce Hazel.
This month, we deep dive into the other inspiration for this brand: What does it mean to be Hazel?
To answer that question we are featuring longtime Fierce Hazel supporter and self-proclaimed FHZ product tester, Seth Davidson. At first glance, even with his Hazel eyes, the Southern California lawyer for cyclists, proud father and blogger might seem more fierce than Hazel.
Viva la Paris Parity!
For the first time, the same number of women as men cyclists will be invited to participate. A total of 514 athletes will compete in all cycling events—257 men and 257 women.
A total of five categories make up the cycling sports at the Olympics.
Three of those, BMX, BMX Freestyle Park, and mountain biking, gained gender equity this year in the Tokyo games. The addition of equal competitors for men and women in road and track events brings gender equity to all of the Olympic cycling sports. For the Paris games, road and track cycling events will have equal women and men participants, 90 and 95, respectively.
The Crazy Swede
Göran Kropp wasn't shy of adventure, and on a cold Swedish day in October 1995, he got his bicycle, packed his gear, the whole 170 lbs of it, and then set off. Why so much equipment? Well, this wasn't going to be any regular adventure. He was going to be cycling all the way to Nepal, 7,693 miles to be precise. Four months and 6 days later he finds himself at his destination, Mount Everest base camp, and ready to summit the top.
Yoga is Fierce Self Care
Yoga is Fierce Self Care on all levels. Kundalini Yoga, the yoga of awareness and transformation, is a Fierce Hazel favorite. What we love about yoga is in just a few minutes you can change your attitude, increase your energy, detox, relax and release. Give it a try to gear up for a bike ride or kickstart your day.

We Are Explorers Review
Both products we looked at are nicely designed, but it’s the sustainable focus of Fierce Hazel that really has us frothing. Both the wallet and the pouch are made entirely from deadstock – specifically, unused material left over at the factory by bigger clients who overestimated the amount required for production. Which is pretty flippin’ awesome.
Add to this the fact that they’re ethically produced by hand at a factory that pays a living wage, has reasonable working hours, and a good work environment, and Fierce Hazel are ticking a whole lot of incredible boxes.
The Future of Farming
Simply put, farming sustainably means producing more with less. As the populations grow and driving up the demand for food, we need to develop an integrated approach to managing landscapes—farmland, livestock, forests, and fisheries--that address the interlinked challenges of food security and climate change. We need to meet the current global need for food without compromising future generations' ability to meet their needs
Climate Smart Agriculture (CSA) aims to increase food production, increase farming systems' resilience to environmental change, and increase agricultural systems sustainability through reduced Green House Gases (GHGs) and environmental footprints emanating from agriculture.
