road.cc jersey on the way

road.cc jersey (front)

Here at road.cc your aesthetic well-being is always one of our top priorities, there'll be no cycling fashion faux pas on our watch! That's why we got together with some of cyclings's top style gurus * (no, really!) to ensure that every road.cc user can be on-trend, on the road this season. So, for maximum cycling pleasure it's got to be plaid dad! And, after some discussion and a fair amount of 'creative tension', we've gone for black and powder blue (Gok was adamant) rather than black and powder pink, but let us know what you think… maybe we'll go pink with the next lot. We'll be offering a limited run to start with in small, medium, large and extra large. There will definitely be a short sleeved version (as pictured) and we may also do a long sleeve too – once we've decided whether sleeves are in or out. The jerseys should be available in early October – we'll let you know the pricing nearer the time. For those who can't wait and 'must have" this winter's 'must have' jersey please form an orderly queue here: info@road.cc * these things are so objective though aren't they?

Mundo, It's got to be plus fours to complete the ensemble… we might be able to help you out there. We're in negotiations and It's all hanging on this year's tweed harvest.

At the start of the year the global price of Tweed went through the roof when found it was able to power old Volo estates. Sad

And recently the exclusive 'Free-Range' Tweed stocks were kit hard by the flooding. The poor things got too water logged, most to the point that they couldn't swim to dry land and perished. Sad

So you can imagine what that's done to he price of the sort of ethically sourced organic tweed that we were after - Rapha have pretty much bought the lot - the last tweed in Scotland is theirs, and all the Nepalese yeti hair (much rarer than the Tibetan rubbish), so bang go our plans for a range of lightweight, yet strong, man-bags and gloves too…
