Yes – I know. Weird. There’s another event of some sort taking place in Yorkshire in July where the riders will race around Yorkshire but stay on roads all the time and not carry their bikes. There’s also this footie thing happening in Brazil, which is in the south somewhere. So Russ Jones and the regular 3 peaks guys at Hackney GT designed a new cycling shirt. Get yours.
Here’s their low-down
Summer 2014 really is going to be a sporting bonanza. The Le Grand Depart for the tour de France is in Yorkshire and oh yes there are some football matches going on in Brazil . At Hackney GT of course we have more than a penchant for cycling, like nothing more than to ride the Yorkshire dales and race the annual 3 Peaks cyclo-cross race. With regards Brazil we love the music and many of its cultural attributes .
So this year if any it had to be the year to marry up the ‘Land of Samba’ with a celebratory cycle jersey, ‘Samba Velo’. Brazilian motifs and colours, bright, bold and playful. Not a football jersey but definitely to be seen in on and off the bike wether up north watching ‘Le Tour’ or in Rio to see the ‘beautiful game’.
Available online from www.hackneygt.com and at selected local stores. RRP £59.95. More details are available from Hackney GT. Sample products are available upon request as are hi-res photos.
In addition and harking back to our roots Hackney GT will be at the London Coffee Festival
