DEADLINE FOR REGISTRATIONS - 14TH APRIL
Nightrider - Saturday 9th June
Nightrider is an exciting 100km moonlit cycle ride past London’s iconic landmarks. This is a fantastic event where you’ll join over 3000 riders taking to the streets of London as the capital sleeps.
After losing 3 stone, I'm on the market for a new jacket to replace my Gill Speed Pro, which has been the best cycling jacket I've ever owned.
I sweat buckets and eVent is the most breathable waterproof material I've ever used. It's perfect for cycling - so where the hell are all the jackets?? I can only find reference to the dhb Wickham jacket, which looks identical to the Speed Pro, but it's been discontinued!
Anyone got any leads? I'm staggered that ALL cycling jackets aren't made out of this wonder material!
wanted to introduce you all to our wonderful charity cycle event planned for next August 2011.
The Big Life Ride is a 12 hour bike relay and our aim is to raise £1 million pounds for our charities:
Cancer Research UK
Macmillan Cancer Support
Rainbow's Children's Hospice
The aptly named Wickham over-trousers continue dhb’s reputation for high specification and keen pricing. Every commu-tourist should have a pair of over-trousers in their cycling wardrobe but traditionally, the PU coated variants are very inefficient at moisture management, membranes might guard against driving rain but can leave you feeling like a mobile sauna-even with ventilation flaps.
