Meriwether road bike

Meriwether Cycles is founded by Whit Johnson. Meriwether is his nickname, after Meriwether Lewis of Lewis and ClarkNotes 1. The company is located in Foresthill, California, United States. Johnson builds road, mountain, cyclo-x and touring bikes with a motto of “handbuilt custom steel bicycles to help you get lost”.

“I did my first mountain bike tour in 2004 and that was a game changer for me. I have always commuted by bike as much as possible and ridden with friends on long rides and races, but touring self-supported for days at a time was… well, I found my inner Meriwether all over again. These experiences made me want to create the most utilitarian bicycles that can take you anywhere you want to go – reliably and safely – whether it be a for gravel, mountain, road, or cross.” –Whit Johnson
