Here at FINDRA, we’re always looking to bring you snippets of motivation to get you inspired for your own everyday adventures. Our customers inspire us the most – FINDRA was created for all of you and everything we do is designed with you in mind. Our Customer of the Month feature picks one of our wonderful customers and gets to know them a little bit better.
Meet Chris Yeomans
Say hello to Chris Yeomans – an ex-shepherd, ex-blacksmith, frame builder who lives in the gorgeous hills of Wales. Chris is lucky enough to work from home building frames with his business, Smithy Frameworks.
Chris first discovered FINDRA at the Bespoked bike show in 2017 and was disappointed with the lack of menswear, so you can only imagine his joy when we brought out our Designed by Demand mens line in 2018.
When he’s not making custom steel bike frames, he’s either out on his bike or wild swimming – or a mixture of the two!
“Exploring the outdoors has always been part of my life. Holidaying with my family in the New Forest or camping with Scouts were my earliest experiences. Later with our own four children we spent many happy nights under canvas. One memorable year we managed to fit in over 50 nights, between March and October!”
Read more about Chris over on on the blog!
Wonderful Wild Swimming
If you’re after some visual inspiration, head over to the Wild Swimming Stories Instagram. Photographers Anna Deacon and Vicky Allan are based in Edinburgh and share stories of people who have discovered the joy of wild swimming – for whom it has changed their lives.
Book of the Week
Music of the Week
We’re building a FINDRA Community Playlist over on Spotify, bringing you music of a rather eclectic variety! From classic dance tunes to lesser-known indie songs, we hope there’s something new in there for you. If you’ve got a favourite you’d like to hear in the playlist, drop us a tweet!
Chris, in his own words, is a child of the 70s. So anything which takes his back to a time when you could get up in the morning and get moving is a favourite song of his!
Whatever you’re up to this week, friends, remember to find your everyday adventure.
Love, Team FINDRA x
