Ellsworth Bikes were forced to evacuate last week as the California fires swept into their area. The company has taken up a temporary administrative office in Oceanside and are continuing to operate normally as much as possible. The fire destroyed all phone and electrical infrastructure near their offices, and burned an organic avocado grove on their administrative property in Ramona. From Oceanside, the company is able to answer e-mails and continue filling orders out of their Vancouver, Wash. facility. Two articles have been posted on Bicycle Retailer's website that have updated Ellsworth's status, both during and following the evacuation. See the first article Here and the second Here.
