Jonathan Solichin is a UCLA student and a Design Media Arts major, Digital Humanities & GIS minor. Below he shares a little background about his ride and the gear he carries with him.

I ride a Galaxy Mercier SC2, Shimano Sora.

My essentials include: Outlier Slim Dungarees pants, Arc'Teryx A2B Commuter jacket, Betabrand Cornucopia bag, Thinkpad X230T, Dell Venue 8 Pro, Nexus 5, Pebble Smartwatch, Corter leather keychain, bluetooth headphones, portable battery with solar power charger, bike patch kit and tools, duct tape and takeya waterbottle.

I have an addiction to water proofing and water beading even though I live in Southern California: I have waterproof pants, waterproof jacket, waterproof bag and even a waterproof laptop keyboard. Even before I use my pans at home, I always make it bead water before I use it.

Each month we’ll feature a UCLA bicyclist and the essentials they bring with them on their rides. Leave a comment or email us if you’d like you and your bike featured.
