  2. Hit me with your best (coffee) shot

    Coffee [kaw-fee, kof-ee]

    Noun 1. Freshly ground heaven.  A morning is not complete without a cup of coffee.   The most commonly  psychoactive substance in the world.   Every day, every ride - all over the world; a magical moment between a cyclist and their cup of coffee (and cake) occurs.  It's an unwritten rule - a cyclist without their coffee is like a plumber without his tools!  It doesn't just make you feel warm and fuzzy inside, it has plenty of health benefits: It can help you burn fat and improve your performance; stimulating the bodies central nervous system, it raises metabolism and increases the decomposition of fatty acids.  Coffee can also  help stabilise fatty acids from the fat tissues; allowing you to build better muscle.  A nice strong cuppa will reduce the risk of diabetes, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, it will revive your liver function ANDDD help prevent early death There's more to caffeine than just it's social and health benefits; this relationship goes waaaay back.  In 'olden' day Italy (1960); Italian espresso machine manufacturer Faema sponsored their own pro cycling team and notorious hard-rider Eddy Merckx – nicknamed ‘the cannibal’ because of his aggressive riding style – became Team Faema’s poster-boy, thus making coffee look very cool in the cycling world.  And that's how the love of coffee came to be... Here are some espresso measurements and preferred coffee suggestions advised for preparation, action and recovery:
    • Best pre-ride: Double Espresso; 185mg caffeine, 6cal, 0.4g protein, 0.8g carbohydrate, 0.2g fat.
    • Best mid-ride: Medium Americano (with a splash of skimmed milk); 277mg caffeine, 18cal, 1.6g protein, 2.6g carbohydrate, 0.3g fat.
    • Best for recovery: Medium Mocha (with full fat milk); 75mg caffeine, 301cal, 10.7g protein, 57.4g carbohydrate, 11.3g fat.
    As extreme coffee connoisseurs ourselves, we would love help cycle cafes and others alike, give their fans and customers a unique way of remembering their coffee experience.  Create a fully custom cycle jersey and take advantage of this one of a kind branding opportunity.  It's a hassle free and simple process, and you'll receive your iconic design, just 2 weeks after artwork approval!  Check it out! We've added some of the best coffee pit-stops to visit on your travels! Now we're not suggesting you take these kind of coffee's in your travel cup to work, but you should definitely consider them as a pre or post ride ritual... Don't let your love of coffee get too strong that you over-consume and lessen the enjoyment and benefits - you can read loads more facts here

  4. Road Grand Tours

    GRAND TOUR JERSEY

    Grand Tour Cycling Jerseys 

    30th July, 2018   GRAND TOUR BLOG GIROGiro d'Italia This year (4th May, 2018), for the first time ever - a Grand Tour will start outside of Europe!  It's the 13th time that the Giro starts outside of Italy; Israel has the honour of hosting the first 3 stages, kicking things off in Jerusalem with a time trial.  As usual, the race will consist of 21 stages: 2 individual time trials, 7 sprints, 6 medium difficulty stages and 6 high difficulty stages.  The total distance covered will be 3,546.2KM (2203.5 miles), which is approx. 168.9KM  (105 miles) a day, OUCH.  There's a nice little change for the final stage, as riders will entre beautiful Rome, an opportunity that these riders have likely never done before. With four tours and one Vuelta Espana under his belt , Froome is now the first British rider to win the Giro d'Italia; also making him the second rider to have won all three Grand Tours  AND  the third rider to win them all in one year! Get full details of each stage here.     GRAND TOUR BLOGTour de France As usual, this incredibly famous event will take place throughout the whole of July - beginning 07.07.18  until 23rd.  The 105th edition of the tour will consist of 21 stages and cover a total riding distance of approx. 3,329km.  There's 9 new locations visited fir the first time this year. It's broken down into; 8 flat stages, 5 hills, 6 King of the Mountain stages and 3 altitude finishes (La Rosière, Alpe d’Huez, Saint-Lary-Soulan col de Portet) , 1 individual time trial, 1 team time trial and 2 rest days. This year, the race includes 25 mountain climbs and the cobbles return during the 9th stage in Arras, Roubaix. The last curve ball is that after a 3 year absence, a TTT is back on the cards as early as stage 3. With Lance Armstrong (stripped of his 7 TDF wins), he stated that if Chris Froome races the Tour this year he'll face a 'nightmare' - after experience on the unclear end of a doping accusation.   The  four-time title winner of the TDF is still the bookies odds to win!  The record number of titles held is five, held by Jacques Anquetil, Eddy Merckx, Bernard Hinault and Miguel Indurain. Four-time leading champion Froome, completed the podium this year, but not as expected...  Geraint Thomas stepped in to this years spotlight; after the individual time trial stage, he gained 1m51s over Tom Dumoulin. Ever wonder how the TDF ever got to be the biggest Classic race of all time?  Read how times have changed - here. SPAIN JERSEY VISUALVuelta a Espana Beginning on August 25th, the 73rd edition of this Spanish La Vuelta  will begin in Malaga - the second time since 1936  and there's no better way to start than an ITT right?!  The rumours are circulating, but the finalised route/ stage details are yet TBC this month.  Looking ahead though, there's rumours of the 2020 edition already!  Will the Vuelta go back to the future in the Netherlands...       Simon Yates won the 73rd edition of the Vuelta a Espana ahead of Enric Mas and Miguel Lopez - making this the first time, all grand tours in a season have been won by British Riders.

     #BeeStrong  - We Love MCR Charity Cycling Jersey 

    23rd June, 2017

    I LOVE MCR JERSEY BLOG IMAGEA couple of months ago, we designed a really special custom cycle jersey for Chris; to help him with his decision to cycle for charity and help raise money for the Manchester Arena Victims.  He cycled from Blackpool to Manchester on the 9th of July - that's 100km by the way...  And he  busted a gut and do it in a target of 4 hours! The charity he is representing is the Lord Mayor if Manchester charity - We Love MCR; this charity is dedicated to support people who have been injured or bereaved by the attack on the 22nd of May. Since the making of this jersey, the increase of fundraising event participation has kept just kept growing to help support the victims and their ever grieving families.  Among all the events, various  ranges of clothing have been released with a 'Bee Strong' logo to raise money for the victims.  Charity rides are amongst the most popular acts of kindness to raise money for the charity, so we're proud to be able to offer such an meaningful product to so many people.  You can show support by purchasing your very own MCR jersey herePlease take reassurance that we will donate a percentage of sales from each jersey to the We Love MCR Charity. The Arena reopens its doors (September 9th) after repair, for the first time in 3 months since the horrific event in which 22 people died and dozens were injured after the Ariana Grande concert; with an all star line up benefit concert in which proceeds will go to the We Love MCR Charity. There's still plenty of events lined up before the end of the year!  You can see and sign up here.

    islay whisky festival

    Feis IIe - the Isle of Islay's Whisky Festival

    3rd April, 2018 For over 30 years now, Islay has been host of the Islay Festival of Malt.  Held annually on the last week of May; when the temperature is just right and the man eating midgies are still at bay.  This Islay whisky festival calls upon all kinds of connoisseurs from all over  the globe. Islay is part of the Southern Hebrides and home to approx. 3,200 people and also resident to some of the most replenishing Scottish malt whisky distilleries including: Ardbeg, Bruichladdich,Lagavulin and Laphroaig.  With miles of beautiful beaches and a good stretch of road - you can't resist a good cycle if you're going to the festival - take on the Whisky trail -  (click here for Islay bike hire ). 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. You can also pick up your very own cycle jersey souvenir!

  7. Scottish Enduro Series RND 1

    Enduro Scene Thrives

    3rd April, 2018   WAAAAAAAAAH!!! We're pretty stoked out here at thecyclejersey HQ  preppin' and printin' for ROUND 1 POC Scottish Enduro Series at Laggan Wolftrax Centre - who's shreddin?! So what sort of riding should you expect? The weather at the moment isn't too shabby, erring towards the damp side for the weekend.  Expanding on “physical and fun” riders should be expecting some traditional trails with a mixture of built trails, some steep bits (both up and down) and a challenge for everyone. There will be a total of 5 timed stages for the full enduro and 3 for the short course the amazing Laggan trail ninjas have been working hard to give you all some treats. For the short course you should expect the best of Laggan’s blue and red tracks, with a wee bit of the Natural Gold that is on offer there too – expect a lot of fun and a bit of a challenge.  Your course is just over 18km long and has 3 stages. Now, lets #throwback to 2017 Fort William held a great range of trails from trail centre to natural and for me that makes for a good weekend. The SES brings riders together from all different backgrounds; with a strong field of skills when it comes to the natural gold, but as my reputation seems to be emerging... it is true, I do love a good pedal in between the wild muddy sections. Coming in to my third year of racing Enduro, the SES has been a solid foundation for me. From 2015, each round has pushed my riding on committing me to the race line down steep muddy shoots I would have otherwise toyed with. Getting together with over 300 riders for a weekend of fun, Round 1 was one of the most chilled out weekends of racing I have had with excellent company and superb craic, it was so good to be in that atmosphere again... I’m still laughing my way down stage 4s wild mud rut/spaghetti bolognese. During the off season break in races I didn’t follow a good solid training program. What I did commit to was flat pedals... From a DC trainer/not so grippy Gusset pedal combo to a FiveTen/Nukeproof dream... it has been one big learning curve.  A visit to Rab at Dirt School in November to rewind back to the basics was priceless, my whole riding position changed and I’m feeling more in control (I did sneak the clips back on for security this weekend haha, but really felt a difference in confidence when the mud simply didn’t let me clip back in!).  My bike, Ibis Mojo HD3, was stripped down for a good 6 weeks at the start of the year as I worked my way around replacing all the much worn parts, so I took to hill walking/dog sitting adventures for the best part of February – best. job. ever! With a pretty large time gap still to close and lots of confidence still to gain, the slow progress has been enjoyable. It was pretty awesome seeing even more girls coming through to the race this weekend, from new riders to experienced, the overall women’s field is strong! Cheers for a good weekend, I hope to see you all again at round 2. Solid result all round for Team TCJ/BaseCampBikes, yessss! Our partner - Eventureworks is the main event supplies and merchandise sponsor for the umpteenth year in a row. SES HEATHER GREY SCREEN PRINTSES 2018 T-SHIRT SCRENN PRINT

  8. Fraser McGlone: on the Downhill World Cup Circuit

    Fraser McGlone:

    Talks Downhill World Cup and Training

      FRASER MCGLONE BLOG HEADER Hey guys, Fraser McGlone here with my first blog post of the year for The Cycle Jersey! Going to be writing some words throughout the year following my journey of what it’s like racing on the Downhill World Cup circuit. FRASER MCGLONE - BLOG IMAGEThis winters been a proper winter, haven’t really experienced this much snow during the off season before and its been causing havoc with trying to get riding done.  Only being able to get on a handful of uplifts has been super frustrating but it's one of these things that you can't change or it would be 30 degrees all year around in Scotland and everyone would be a whole lot happier!  And when there's no snow, there's mud - lots of it!

  9. Gear Up for Warmer Weather

    Lightweight Cycle Clothing

    06th March, 2018   GEAR UP FOR WARMER WEATHER - blog With blue skies on the horizon and the temperature slowly rising; lightweight clothing is an essential component to comfort - among an abundance of other things. Suns out, guns out! Now, we're good at prepping you for this one; leave the layers at home and make sure you're the owner of a highly durable and suitable textile material style jersey.  We use top notch 'Airtex' fabric which not only wicks sweat away from the body efficiently, but dries in the blink of an eye with super ventilation.  You won't get a better quality cycle jersey.  If you're an early riser and are out before the sun, outerwear is recommended. Our Gilets have technical sweat-wicking properties, with plenty of ventilation as we offer the option of a mesh back panel – and they come complete with a full length zip, so you can get as much cooling air over your body as possible.  Side note: it’s probably best to avoid dark colours as we all know it attracts heat. Toot, toot, legs oot! Show people what leg day really looks like!  What style you wear is totally personal preference; for a leisurely ride MTB shorts sit more freely - avoiding any fashion faux pas!  For the roadies, we recommend some Lycra bib-shorts, not so flattering to the eye...  But your performance will soar!  We can customise bib shorts, shorts and skin suits!  Contact us for details. We’ll hook you up. Slather the Sun Cream It’s easy to forget when getting ready to ride your bike and by the time you’ve set off, if you’re not already covered – most of the damage will already be done.   The most important areas are those with thin skin: nose, ears, cheeks and the arms. DO NOT forget the back of your legs – sunlight reflecting off the ground can burn your calves and behind your knees, and that’s fairly uncomfortable. H20 - just add water Water you talking about?  Feel the thirst already?  You're already dehydrated - school boy error!  It takes no genius to know that you must stay hydrated before, during and after your ride!  It's not often a cycle goes to plan, so be prepared - try and take a sip every 15 minutes or so, and on hot days gulp away... Steady on! Take it slow (when appropriate) and don’t charge up all of the hills.  Regular breaks in the shade (or pub/café if you prefer)…

  10. Custom Jersey: Product Review

    PRODUCT SPEC

    Cycling Jersey Manufacturers

    So many people are weary when ordering a personalized custom cycling jersey, due to the  cost implication, the risk of potential error - because you can't return custom bike jerseys (when it's your own mistake) and the general result of the printed garment; quality, durability, etc...  That's why we thought, it's best to lay all the details on the line and comfort you with the information to help aid your decision to jump in with both feet and design your own cycling jersey and make it something spectacular for your team/ club, event - whatever the reason for some custom kit.   Jersey:Untitled-3

    Our Protocol: Once your initial enquiry has been made and the design process has began; we ensure artwork is of a suitable format in order to achieve the highest print quality achievable (we want the best outcome, just like you).  In order to save us time and the customer money - we advise on what artwork to supply here before things become time consuming and costly. After a digital visual has been approved we then send you a mini fabric sample for you to approve, just one last time - because you can never to too careful.  The mini sample gives you an indication of how colour and logo position will look on a full size garment, before sending to print. As soon as you receive the sample and give us the go ahead - your design is straight into print, using all our in-house machinery.  All in, the turnaround time is approx. 2 weeks from sample approval.  We ship free of charge to 1 UK mainland address, on a next day delivery, with email notification - because we know how torturous the excitement is waiting by the door for the Postman. A lot of the worry when ordering custom cycling clothing also lies with the location of the manufacturer.  We can assure you all of our production work is completed under one roof, in Falkirk - Central Scotland - UK.  We have a small team of seamstresses who just work in the next town; we have a very cherished relationship with them and their skill set is like no other we have encountered before.

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
