This year, don’t make it so easy to disappoint yourself. Below, a few highly achievable resolutions — and how we recommend you carry them out — in 2014.
I resolve to go camping. All the time camping.
God bless your tent fetish. Let’s break this resolution down into manageable steps:
Find the campground. Use Hipcamp to find your plot. Or, if you’ve a jones for Big Sur, just start with Ventana’s new campground. Huge. Gorgeous. If you’re still stymied, try our Where to Take Her Camping flowchart.
Buy the jacket. Our pick: the new Orion ultralight jacket from the waterproofing experts at Mission Workshop, available now.
I resolve to bike more often.
Good idea. We’ve got a few suggestions for how to manage that.
Helios Bikes make smart-tech, like glowing handlebars, for all manner of rides.
The Lumen, quite simply, glows in the dark.
I resolve to dress better.
No you don’t. We live in San Francisco. Normcore 4 Life. But, should you be inspired to improve yourself in all matters vestiary, we recommend Indochino’s brand new brick-and-mortar showroom in the Financial District, now taking appointments for made-to-measure everything. Also have a look at our Fall Style Issue. It won’t disappoint.
I resolve to ride a motorcycle. Or at least a cool moped.
For that, start with Motoped — a marriage between a rough and ready downhill mountain bike and a fuel-efficient four-stroke. Quiet and quick enough to make easy work of any city commute, but fully capable of offroading to your next backcountry escape. For an actual real-life motorcycle, we recommend Zero Motorcycles, peddlers to the 5-0 and the armed forces, and now making their stealthy line of electric motorbikes available to the everyday Jake. Just don’t forget to get a futuristic helmet for your noggin.
