Morvélo Bicycle Apparel have joined up with Sussex compatriots Dark Star Brewing Co to produce the latest jersey in their range.
Dark Star is an award-winning brewery based next door to Kinesis Bikes, home of The Kinesis Morvélo Project (The KMP) cycle team (well, kind of a team – go to www.kinesismorvelo.com for the details).
Initially, on encouragement from Morvélo, Dark Star sponsored the ever-popular Brighton Big Dog mountain bike event. So impressed by a cyclist’s post-ride thirst, they now sponsor The KMP who offer samples of Dark Star drinks, such as the Espresso Stout, at events they attend,
This led to a demand for a cycle jersey, so Dark Star encouraged the enthusiastic cyclists and drinkers at Morvélo to let their creative ideas flow. Several designs later and the result blends Morvélo's classic styling, Dark Star's logo, and a premium-quality jersey.
Mat has worked for more bike magazines than anyone else in the known universe, dating back to a time when this was all just fields. He's been road.cc technical editor for four years, testing bikes, fettling the latest kit, and trying out the most up-to-the-minute clothing. We send him off around the world to get all the news from launches and shows too. When he's not cycling around Wiltshire, he's running around it, or possibly swimming (sadly, he's one of those 'triathletes'). Mat is a youthful 42-year-old Cambridge graduate, GSOH etc.
