The Tour Brings Retro Cycling Jerseys Out in the Daylight!
Excitement is building in and around Cockermouth, Maryport, Carlisle, Penrith and Brampton in Cumbria with the prospect of the Tour of Britain Cycle race crossing the county in two stages of the race early in September.
In bedrooms and attics around the county musty cycle shorts and jerseys are being reincarnated as the nation’s greatest cycling race heads for the county once more! Yellow bikes are appearing on buildings, the county council is issuing spectator advice (http://www.cumbria.gov.uk/tob2015/default.asp) and plenty of local cycling enthusiasts are out on the routes, trying them for themselves.
Bike Tops Deliver a Charity Boost!
But it’s not just about racing or leisure riding. Cycling has become the basis of a massive influx of money to the charity sector through both sponsored rides & challenges including Lands End to John O’ Groats, London to Paris & a host of local cyclo sportives throughout the country.
Cycling has rapidly gained in popularity – even in Cumbria where some of the hills might put off the faint hearted – and the team at Stitch & Print have a history of supplying options for team cycle jerseys, club sportswear and other personalised sports gear for both larger events like the Commonwealth Games as well as local clubs and event riders.
Cycling Jerseys for Cumbria’s Local Events
“We’ve had a strong local cycling links to events like the Jennings River Ride run by Cumbria Community Foundation in the past, both participating & as a supply partner” says Richard Mattinson, MD of Stitch & Print, “We’ve supplied personalised team shirts for participants and printed hoodies as prizes. This year we’re going one better by supplying shirts for our own group of riders. Our own design “Lanterne Rouge” celebrates the history of the last man on the road as well as giving a great visual aspect to our promotional team shirts,”
As well as being able to offer a full bespoke kit offer, we have a range of plain cycling tops & rain jackets which are top options for small personalised quantities and we have the equipment here to print on to those to create something unique – so we’re hoping that the enthusiasm of the next few weeks will lead to plenty of groups using personalised shirts to advertise their causes in future.”
