We’ll be Stylin’ in 2016!

So, last year about this time we decided to pass on doing the local cycling club sign-up since we really don’t ride with the club all that much anymore.  Great concept and we enjoyed “belonging” to the club for many years, but for the past few years the juice just wasn’t worth the squeeze.

However, like a lot of cyclists, as our older cycling jersey’s begin to lose their elasticity and in light of some more recent weight loss and other body dimension changes that seem to occur with age we stumbled upon Voler’s Partner program as a source for jerseys.
20150920_123425The Voler jerseys have a good fit for both of us, seem to be of very good quality fabrics and their partnership programs seem to provide lots of interesting choices for the make-to-order market.  Our first foray into the partnership program was with our DrunkCyclist jerseys back in 2014 and they’ve been great!

Last year we added the new Calfee jersey design to our line-up.

We debuted these on the triplet at last year’s  Georgia Tandem Rally and they’ve proven to be a new favorite, right up there with the DrunkCyclist.

Regular readers will recall from last year’s note on the Calfee jersey that we were also very tempted to add a very stylish jersey used by the cyclocross team at Blacktop Cyclery in Bakersfield, California and that is, in fact, what we added this year.

We’ll hope to see these in a few weeks as they’re produced on demand when the order is placed.  It will be nice to have yet another jersey that actually fits well and looks, well, spectacular.  Sadly, we probably won’t be sporting these on the triplet as we have a full complement of jerseys to cover us for the three-day rallies.  But, it was VERY tempting as they are great-looking jerseys.

I also decided to add a heavier-weight, long sleeve jersey to our cycling wardrobe, (a) because we really need some mid-weight long-sleeve jerseys that actually fit and (b) because DrunkCylist now offers just such a jersey!

So, once again, Voler’s “on-demand’ Partner program jerseys have provided us with exactly what we wanted: fun jerseys that are just a little different from the standard fare. Of course, what I LOVE about this is Voler apparel is made in the USA! Yes, Voler is an honest to goodness cut and sew business located in Grover Beach, California (near San Luis Obispo): http://www.voler.com/connect/about/

If you’d like to see what will most likely be next year’s wardrobe addition, here’s the one I almost couldn’t resist adding this year!

Happy cycling!  After all, cycling is too much fun to take too seriously!

About TG

I've been around a bit and done a few things, have a couple kids and a few grandkids. I tend to be curmudgeonly, matter-of-fact and not predisposed to self-serving chit-chat. Thankfully, my wife's as nice as can be otherwise we'd have no friends. My interests are somewhat eclectic, but whose aren't?
