Enjoy The Ride!
Updated: Dec 9, 2021
LOUIS & JOY by Lindsey Mayes is a brand focusing on cycling bags made in a small studio in Minnesota (recently moved from Marin County California).
Robin LOUIS & Betty JOY, who are my parents, inspire and motivate me every day. After my father passed away in 2014, I began riding bikes as a form of therapy. Since then, I've done cyclocross, road, and crit races. Currently, I'm fully enjoying the simplicity of riding with friends.
In 2018, I was intrigued by bike camping and my interest led me to begin sewing bags. The first bag I made was a framebag, very generic but worked amazing for its purpose! From there friends noticed and started to ask for bags for themselves. I launched LOUIS & JOY in March of 2018 and we have been growing organically since.
Over the last 2 years we have been able to grow the Louis & Joy brand with a strong social media following (@LouisandJoy on Instagram) and by establishing strong retail partnerships in California, Arizona, Texas, & North Carolina.
Our current 2021 line includes Handlebar Bags, Saddle Bags, & Camera Straps all available at www.LouisJoy.com.
We are finally settled into our new workspace in Minnesota and we are super excited to get out on some rides and get connected with the bike community here in Minneapolis.
Enjoy the ride!
