The t-shirts have arrived and are in stock for now and you can order direct from the Prendas Ciclismo website: prendas.co.uk
The last time the collection tin was rattled here several readers started asking about t-shirts instead of cycling kit. Well the guys at Prendas got to work and within weeks it went from suggestion to reality.
They are priced at £25 ($32/€28) and the Prendas website has more photos and details.
It’s a t-shirt with a difference. Typically tees have printed designs but this one has a panel with the pattern sublimated instead, like a cycling jersey. The difference isn’t so much about manufacture, more how gives the t-shirt a different touch with a comfy feel.
These sales help. It’s totally fine to read without buying kit and as loyal readers will know there’s no hard sale here, just the occasional reminder… and there are caps and socks available too.
But if you do enjoy reading here, you can help out like many other readers have done. Sales revenue is split between Prendas and me meaning you get some new gear and it helps keep the wheels turning here, whether it’s easing travel expenses for recon rides to inform accurate stage previews or essentials like paying for hosting and bandwidth for this website.
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 cycling enthusiasts who offer friendly, personal advice.
Many thanks to everyone who has purchased kit already.
