The sales revenue is split between Prendas and me meaning you get some new gear but also help give a tip for the writing this year.
If you’re thinking of making a purchase but unsure of the size or something else do phone or email Mick and Andy at Prendas Ciclismo, it’s an online shop backed by two friendly cycling enthusiasts who can advise you in between collecting vintage jerseys, supporting British riders via the Dave Rayner Fund and the special Banana team kit or sponsoring the Drops women’s team.
