  2. Guide to Designing Teamwear

    Team Cycling Kit

    Where o' where to start with designing your own team/ club kit...  Our design motto tends to be 'simple is powerful' - and it all comes down to  the concept and logos you're working with. Corporate logos follow all brand marketing rules; simple, memorable and more important to us designers - they're designed and constructed in the correct artwork format!  Small local/ entrepreneurial businesses on the other hand - tend to be the complete opposite! Having said that - when paired with a retro design any logo can be morphed into an awesome custom cycling jersey. Another good point to remember, is to bare in mind the whole kit.  We only offer black shorts as it's the most popular colour choice and it tends to always go with every design - you are able to fully customise the leg gripper - and we can colour match any corporate or branded logos to ensure it all matches. When choosing colours, it's better to have brighter colours on the shoulders, side panels and/ or lower back.  It's always a good idea to make yourself visible, no matter what the purpoe of your jersey is for.  We offer the option to add a reflective strip to the back pocket of your jersey, for a small fee.  We don't currently offer a neon colour chart, however you can trust in us that our colour range is very wide - you can request a free colour swatch if you're unsure.   Click here to read more about our custom product range and to see pricing and additional options for our 2019 custom collection. We currently offer a FREE artwork design and mini sample service.  AND there's no minimum order numbers to meet!

From tales of festivals past; the population of Islay more than doubles for the festival - the calling of music and malts is an irresistible thought for whisky pilgrims around the country. All distilleries will open their doors to the public for daily tastings, there's golf, bowing ceilidhs and Gaelic lessons and proper good music!  The festival will commence the week of May 25th- 2nd June.

  5. No Fuss - Runduro

    Runduro

    20th Feb, 2018 NFBannner No Fuss are days away from kick starting their events calendar this year with the first race of the season - the Fort William Runduro (commencing on 24.02.18)!  Only 4 years year old, it is growing and succeeding.  This multi-stage running event course, ventures around some of the Outdoor Capitals best off road running trails - linking through Fort William and Glen Nevis. The route remained the same for the first 3 years of it's life; 8 special stages linked by 7 transitional stages, with final results based solely on the total time taken for the special stages (approx. 20.1km)  and is broken down into stages; each varying slightly, consisting of sharp bends, screaming hill climbs, terrible terrain and sprint opportunities - but this year sees a wee change!  Brand spanking new and marking the No Fuss Events Runduros fourth birthday is the short course option; those of this years event can opt out of stages 3 & 4 and crack on through the rest of the 14km route. Whatever your running style, this is something for everyone – the Runduro event is an event which falls underneath the umbrella of the Fort William Mountain Festival; a celebration of outdoor pursuits. TCJ are proud sponsors of various No Fuss events.

  7. Muckmedden MTB Eliminator

    JSR Start line photoFriday the 23rd of June saw the first day of the best biking festival of the year. The Muckmedden Head2Head Eliminator 2017, hosted at Parkhill Farm, Cupar. Arriving early on the sunny Friday afternoon meant we had our pick of the campsite, and after much deliberation settled on a spot close enough to the toilets for midnight visits. But far enough away to avoid the inevitable waft of keich that was certain to fill the air by close of play sunday. Our camping ritual insists that once parked, the first beer MUST be immediately opened and consumed quickly to avoid anyone from woosing out if the weather turns nasty. The clinking of bottles meant the start of an epic weekend full of bikes, beers and banter. Which by bedtime that evening, was had by the bucketload. Probably too much fun was had to be honest! We awoke at 7am on the Saturday slightly fuzzy, shovelled in breakfast and quickly dashed over to the event village to visit the guys at The Cycle Jersey to pick up my shiny new race shirt for the day, and special Eliminator tshirts and mugs! We couldn’t have James representing and not myself as well! Atop the hill the wind was trying to take us back to Edinburgh, and if Stevie had caught enough sick air off the cheeky double at the start of the run, that's where he just might have ended up! The course consisted of a blast along the crest of the hill, turning down the face of it over the launch pad jump, then blasting into the woods. Down a steep slippery chute, exploding into the event village and over the road gap into the final section through a barley field! None of us had  ever competed in a head to head before, so we didn't know what to expect, but as usual, Aaron and his team put together an excellent format which is friendly and fun, but lets not forget its still a race!!! Its win or be eliminated! Big Steve was called first and wasted no time in collecting the teams first win of the day. James and myself followed, both winning the next few runs. However a pedal slip at the start by myself saw me eliminated shortly after and Stevie too was pipped at the post by his opponent only a couple runs previous. Leaving James to bring home some silverware for the boys, but sadly this was not to be. Eliminated by one of the top riders attending saw us all hitting the bar sooner than we would have liked! But…..without realising it, I was the last eliminated eligible to qualify for the barley dual slalom.  Another smaller knockout tournament held between finals of the Eliminator event. Which to my delight, I won!!!! So when all was said and done the team gained our 2nd Gold medal, which by the way, iv only just managed to pry from my chest as I was so chuffed. It may not have been the main event, but we will take any medals we can get!! Needless to say, the rest of the Saturday evening was spent dressed up as an 80s trucker in a full mullet and double denim, flying around on a borrowed tandem bike and drinking more than our own bodyweight in alcohol! Of course it was…there's no other way! Sunday morning came and we fell out of our vans into another gale force wind and began dismantling our HQ, we said our goodbyes and hit the road for home. Another epic weekend of gears and beers with some seriously quick and talented riders thanks to Muckmedden events. Plenty banter and laughs had by us at JRS ENDURO and The Cycle Jersey, always good patter over a pint with these guys…. and not to mention our epic new racing shirts!!!! Thanks again, much love and we look forward to seeing you all at the next event. Cheers!!!

  8. Whisky: A right British Beverage

    Whisky [wiski]

    (Noun) 1.  The term whisky comes from the Gaelic 'uisge beatha', or 'usquebaugh', meaning 'water of life'. Gaelic is that branch of Celtic traditionally spoken in the Highlands of Scotland.   All the rumours you've heard are true - the Scots drink Whisky!  And they do it well - did you know; Scottish people are the largest consumers of Spirits in the UK?! Mwhahaha.  There's approx. 20 million casks that lie maturing in warehouses all over Scotland, resulting in a mass variety of Whisky tastes being introduced to the world, and it would seem that being a connoisseur of all things whisky is intoxicatingly enjoyable! Think about it...  Whisky is made up from multiple botanicals, various grains and barely and fresh spring water.  Alcohol is generally associated with bad lifestyle choices, liver problems and unpredictable outcomes, but Whisky has its benefitsit helps you maintain a healthy weight as it has no fat and very little sodium, it has been proven than whisky can boost your cognitive performance and reduce your chances of developing Dementia, heart health is another!  Those who drink a moderate amount of whisky (regularly), have just shy of a 50%  chance of experiencing a heart attack or stroke.  There's more where pro's to whisky here. If you're going have a dram, do it right!  Here's how... It’s common for bars here to stock 40 or 50 different bottles of Scotch; 150 bottles, all malt, is not that rare. I think it is a cultural thing – we’re very patriotic, don’t forget Here's some fun facts:
    • Drinkers in the UK often choose to enjoy it with just a little water, but in Spain they mix it with cola. In Japan Scotch is enjoyed with lots of water and ice, and in China with cold green tea.
    • Scotch Whisky is sold in around 200 markets worldwide.
    • Scotch Whisky sells three times its nearest rival whisky.

  10. Event Branding

      Event branding is probably the most important element to planning, other than sticking to budget of course.  It can make or break your event and we're here to make sure that doesn't happen; we can provide you with event merchandise and supplies that will: Help your customers know what to expect and create an awesome social buzz. Therefore create recognition. It will generate loyal customers and generate referrals (furthering recognition). And most importantly it will add value. With over 20 years in the printing industry - we've catered for the best of the best including: Amstel, Atherton Racing, Cancer Research, Dune, Jet2 and many more.  You've probably heard of No Fuss Events too, if you're reading this blog post?  Well, we've also worked with them for over 10 years - producing all event merchandise for every event!  That's right, any old number boards or promo tee's you have kicking about the house from way back, we made them! Now branding isn't  just a logo and it's more than just posters - although that's somewhat important too.  You need to be your brand persona; it's in the way you answer the phone, your website content, definitely in your social media distribution and how you physically present yourself to the customer (that part we can help you with).  Visit @Eventureworks on Twitter and Facebook for more information and news on what we're up to.

ABOUT TCJ

High quality digital printing technology has evolved over the years and we have the facility to utilise it to the max. So we use it unlike most others! Initially to produce our own cycle jerseys, mainly for races, enduros and just plain fun. Most of all we just wanted something different to wear on the trails that subtly whispered our likes and dislikes, our joy of the sport and desire to be creative with it.

Trouble is, we kept getting nagged for jerseys from friends and fellow riders......It didn't take much of that to realise there was a demand for these quirky and limited edition designs we were wearing, so it began to dawn on us that we should go for it. Go large. Thanks to the help and encouragement from the fine companies you see in the following pages, we finally got ourself together and brought our designs to the public at large - and created TheCycleJersey.com ...Read More
