  1. Red Bull Fox Hunt 2016

    Red Bull Foxhunt Jersey

    Red Bull Foxhunt 2016; the MTB event of the year that every woman can't wait to dig their heels into!  With a mass start of 249 woman and one reigning  MTB World Champ - Rachel Atherton who had a challenge to defend her title, you can only imagine the total carnage LOL. UCI Mountain Bike Downhill Champ Rachel Atherton, won her 13th consecutive series earlier this year, swooping through the finish line of each trail of every race, leaving  the other riders to eat her dust!  Unfortunately time was not an element on her side this year - as she went down with a mechanical failure right at the beginning and wasn't able to challenge her own overtaking PB.  Though this caused insane adrenaline and hard grafting for the hounds  surrounding the defending champ, a handful of very lucky woman managed to overtake Rachel and cross the finish line - TCJ riders included!  It's not every day our very own TCJ and BaseCamp Bikes associated team riders place ahead of a reigning MTB World Champ.  Though she wasn't disheartened stating 'It was absolutely amazing. I got a puncture right at the start, but I knew I had to carry on – this is Red Bull Foxhunt! It was so cool watching the women riding down– I was right in the middle of everybody. I had to really think and use my head to get past people." We've been proud manufacturers of the Red Bull Foxhunt custom jersey for 3 years now RED BULL FOXHUNT 2016 RA_RB
  2. Cycle Routes

    Popular UK Cycle Routes

    You lot have been busy gallivanting with your bikes this year!  Charity rides, training and 'just for funing', so we had a wee nosy at some of the best cycle routes in the UK that are traffic free, long distance and right up your street! 1.  Lake District 140 miles of Lakes and the Pennies; this journey is probably the most ridden route of all, passing from Whitehaven to Sunderland.  It's challenging, but worth the reward!  There's picture perfect views and beaches! 2.  North Sea Scotland Hmm, I'm not sure many of you will do this 'just for fun'...  I recommend you pack a hip flask or 5 and make it the strong stuff!  This cycle route covers around 3,500+ miles!  Surrounding 8 countries!  It's just sounding worse, AHHH!  You'll be part of a small bunch who can say they were bad ass enough to complete it though!  Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, England and Scotland are the countries you'll scoot through and take your time while you're there, say cheers to a beer and put your feet up, munch on a German hotdog and take in the breath-taking views - you'll be back in Scotland before you know it! 3. East Anglia This route isn't so risky, popular amongst  beginners or for time restricted rides.  You'll dilly dally from Fakenham to Harwich (163 miles). 4. Hadrian's Cycleway 174 miles on your 2 wheel, leg powered machine! This route is famous for the countryside views, coastal routes and the historic Roman Forts. 5. Tweed Cycleway A short (ish), downhill sweep covering approximately 89 miles from Biggar to Berwick-upon-Tweed.  You'll have a peaceful run through quiet lanes, villages and forest trails. 6. West Country Way This is a biggy!  Routing a total of 252 miles through Cornwall to Somerset - don't worry though, you'll have plenty of opportunities to stop for pasties and cake to fuel up! 7. Devon Coast to Coast Last, but certainly not least, this route will take you 102 miles around Plymouth beaches and Dartmoor National Park.  Following back roads and country lanes, this route is ideal for novices and families  - the wee jaunt will only take the weekend, so there's plenty of time to explore the beaches and the local life.            
  3. Breast Cancer Now Charity

    Jerseys for Charity

    Ruta Costa Verde 2016 Charity Cycle in recognition of Sarah Greene (former Blue Peter Presenter) and victim of Triple Negative Breast Cancer, is taking place in a little under 2 weeks! sarah greene Road jersey 2016The Sarah Greene Breakthrough Tribute Fund exists to help raise awareness and fund research for the disease.  Little is known about the cancer, therefore limited treatment options are available; saying that, over the years the support gained from charity events has enabled scientists at Kings College to discover the behaviour of the disease, giving them a blurred, but useful insight to why it is so hard to treat. Every 2 years, since 2008 a small group of Sarah Greene's friends and family have been proud organisers of charity events invented to raise mass awareness for Triple Negative Breast Cancer – a form of this disease sadly took her away from her family.  With the help and advice from Breakthrough Breast Cancer, they are now about to embark on their 5th successful (the most successful) charity cycle, ‘Ruta Costa Verde’. Beginning in beautiful Northern Spain, I wish I could say the route will be a breeze… BUUUUUT it won’t!  Sand dunes to mountain summits; this will be a challenging, but accessible journey of discovery through the least known and most beautiful areas of Spain.  The 3 day challenge will cover approximately 70-80 miles of steady climbs, descents and picture perfect views that’ll be worth the screaming pain your legs will be feeling.  You can find out more about the charity by clicking here. Creating, participating, or even supporting from the side lines – we love being involved in charity work! If you are thinking of creating or participating in a charity cycle event – or even just want a jersey to help promote a cause close to you, then please do not hesitate to drop us a line of inquiry at: in order to design your own.
  4. Charity Matters

    mission motorsportSoldiers Charity

    It might not have happened to you - yet, or might not ever.  But millions of people all over the world are affected by events out with their control, be it illness, poverty, disability, etc.… Be it personally or through a loved one; the last thing you’ll want is to pity yourself.  You’ll need someone who understands to talk to – a charity.  Make others aware of your organisation, make a difference and help others like you! We have recently teamed up with a diverse charity – Mission Motorsport; the forces charity.  A niche community of physically and mentally injured veterans as a result of military operations.  Their aim is to aid the recovery and rehabilitation of those affected by military operations, by providing opportunities through Motorsport.  This is achieved through various experiences and vocational courses that allow them to use their existing knowledge and skills and teaching them to further develop their resilience and the ability to adapt to testing environments – building new found independence and employable skills and attributes. Formally supported by Help for Heroes, Mission Motorsport are still greatly appreciative of the generosity of other supporters, please feel free to aid their charity and offer a donation.  This is an exceptional charity and the work of the veterans is indescribable as to how hard they work, to better themselves and not let a disability control their wellbeing. We are very, very, very proud to have been approached by the charity to design and manufacture a fully custom jersey to represent their cause! Keep up to date with their events and like them on Facebook, follow them on Twitter Cause a discussion, advertise with pride and promote what really matters to you – with a fully custom cycle jersey.     Ace Africa Horatio's GardenHope HouseBrompton Foundation JAM Edinburgh Council

  6. Product Review: Ladies Road Jersey

    Customer Product Review:Mint Sauce Original (S) Ladies Road Jersey

      mint orig fBeing a keen athlete for many years now; participating in various Triathlon events and this year participating in my first iron Man in Bolton, I promised I would write a review for as this is where I purchase a lot of my cycle attire.  One of my favourite purchases from the company was a Mint Sauce Cycle Jersey - I had absolutely no choice (not that I had any issues); my daughter advised I 'had to buy this one' so I 'looked good on the bike', because 'people see you, you know' and 'you're my mum too!' haha!  So here's my personal thoughts and opinions on this jersey I purchased via 'The 3 F's': FIT First and foremost, the fit.  I have been told when ordering a customised jersey, there is a sport fit available, though I ordered direct from the stock website and I feel the standard ladies fit is fab!  Its true to size and fits the female form perfectly e.g. I wear a size small which definitely represents a high-street size 10.  Usually length is an issue for me, almost every item I buy, the top is too short and it rides up - which isn't terribly flattering!  These jerseys are slightly longer than others I have tried, but it is definitely for the better.  Sometimes with length, comes bagginess - this doesn't not happen! Very, very true to size, I would prompt ladies to double check your inches before ordering and compare them to the measurement guide online.  It also comes with a sizable back pocket, split into 3 (170-180mm deep), large enough for all your essentials: phone, keys, banana, etc...  The zip is a 3/4 length one and runs smoothly - no tug of war or pulling of the fabric.  Regarding zip length and sleeve length, I have done my research and again, when ordering a custom design, these are adaptable. FABRIC SO SOFT!  Feels great and it does everything it says on the tin; light weight, breathable and very durable!  I cover minimum of 50 miles a week, both inside and outside, so my wee jersey goes through hell with me  and still after multiple washes in a week, it feels as good as new - very comfortable.  I was so shocked at the dry time after a wash, it's almost in the blink of a eye!  There's no such thing as colour fade, or logo peeling - which I have experienced in my earlier days, shopping for a great buy.  The jersey is manufactured using sublimation printing; which means the ink is embedded in the material and is trapped.  It's a hands down winner for me. FEEL How it feels when I'm training? Great!  I didn't experience and chaffing - which is a blessing and plenty of room for movement.   No flapping in the wind and no riding up every 5 minutes.   Very happy with my purchase.   Overall, every purchase I have received has been dealt with superbly!  The guys and girls at the company are so attentive and recognise me as a returning customer :)    
  7. RAF Coningsby PassPorte du Soleil Team

    2016 RAF Coningsby PassPortes Du Soleil team In late June, team riders from RAF Coningsby approached us and asked our help regarding a  fully custom designed road jersey for their MTB expedition to Morzine.  They were so happy with both the jerseys and their achievement, they scribbled down a few words for us to post.   It was great to get the whole team all riding in the same kit (pictured throughout), and it drew attention from lots of people, including former DH World Champ STEVE PEAT who saw we were a military team and came over to chat with us in the bar after the last days riding . RAF Coningsby Cycle Club recently made their third annual trip to the Porte du Soleil area around Morzine in the French Alps to undertake Adventurous Training Exercise 'Alpine Passport 16'.  Ten riders undertook 6 days riding on a wide variety of terrain from rough and rocky high altitude trails to technical, rooty wooded sections, to fast flowing bike parks on the lower alpine meadows. The focal point of the expedition was the 100km Pass'Portes du Soleil long distance event from 24-26th of June, which the Coningsby team tackled alongside 6000 other riders.  Following a series of mechanical issues, punctures and steep muddy climbs the team crossed the finish line after a gruelling 11 hours of riding. Over the last 3 years the Alpine Passport expeditions have proved hugely beneficial in developing not only the riding ability of RAF Coningsby personnel but also their organisational and leadership skills. The club made a later jersey order for several new members 2 weeks before departure and pulled out all the stops to turn it around in time for the club to all ride in the same kit and stand out from the crowd as a team.

  9. Summer Cycle Tips

        While the summer nights grow lighter and longer and the roads stay dry (for the most part), there really is no better recipe for a leisurely cycle or a hard-core training sesh!  As Scottish summer doesn't come around annually as it should, we thought you might need reminded of how to look after yourself when pedalling; with the right clothing you'll be tempted to kick it up a gear and swap chilling  in your garden for a scenic ride, instead! 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... Feel the burn! On your legs, not your skin, duh.  We'll not give you a lecture on this one, you know the drill; the longer the ride, the higher the factor.  Improvise with accessories for protection. Suns out, guns out! Now, we're good at prepping you for this one.  Leave the layers at home and make sure you're an 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. 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!  Contact us for details. we'll hook you up. Now you've got the lowdown on some summer tips for riding, check out or custom design generator online.  Because although you'll not all admit it - you've got to look good on the bike!  Your design will be completely unique and not on the high-street, so you're sure to look like a pro.        
  10. Basecamp Bikes & TCJ take to the Comrie Trails

    Basecamp Bikes & TCJ take to the Comrie Trails Eilidh Wells Podium C.O.T.CAaron Gray, Lord Muck of Muckmedden Events, never fails to impress.   Team Muckmedden, the volunteers and racers attracted to these events make it what they are, slightly crazy, but rammed full of energy, challenges and an amazing vibe. This was my first year at Muckmedden’s Cream O the Croft, a Family Friendly Mountain Bike Festival across 3 days with rides, coaching, camping, racing, live music, beer, kid’s entertainment, and local food.  Arriving at Comrie Croft on the Friday afternoon, I met up with the Ginger Squirrel Adventures girls that were leading the Muckmaiden ride out along with a fair number of keen women kitted up and ready to go. A group split and went for the coaching option lead by Progression Bikes, and the rest of us headed for the pump track to start the lead ride. With a good half hour spent getting carried away on the pump track with the girls, this was a great start to the weekend. Post ride, the local hot food stalls were welcomed and the atmosphere in the croft was bustling already. In the big barn, the pedal power big screen was up and running with MTB movies, beer and food. The courtyard, overlooked by a fire breathing dragon, was set up with mini pump track racing for the kids. Team Muckmedden on the tanoid, keeping you up to date with everything, making sure that everyone was happy and doing a stearn job keeping events running smoothly across the weekend. As the evening went on the campsites and hostels filled up with loads of people who just love bikes coming along to join the music and beer in the barn. After a very chilly wakeup call in the van on race day, a very pleasant hot shower and breakfast came earlier than planned. I met up with some of the girls that I had met the day before, collected timing chips for the race and set off together in the same wave. Nine stages in total, using mostly Comrie Croft trail centre trails, the course was brilliantly put together. Stage 1 and 2, similarly were both a tough pedally effort over rocky outcrops with some short smooth linking sections. Stage 3, my favourite blue trail in Scotland, was a pretty smooth rolling start with a straight line of pumping and big berms to finish. Stage 4, a climb! Stage 5 was on the red descent, with some tricky tight corners and rocky sections before a big grassy field. Stage 6, 2 laps of the pump track... pedal for a 15second penalty. Stage 7 took riders back up to the top for a run down the black descent, throwing the steepest rockiest stage of the day after your arms and legs have been numbed. Stages 8 and 9 saved the most fun to the end, the dual slalom. This stage had corners marked out down the grass after a small section of the blue berms and roll able jumps, the riders took one stage on the left then swapped with a partner to race again, this time taking the right line. All race marshals were great through race day, with good chat, awesome cowbell encouragement and spot on dibbing skills. With the weather slowly cooking riders throughout the day, a good shift put in by all, handing the dibbers back in to the beer barn with local brews on tap was more than ideal for most. Taking the overall win was a delight, simply to be crowned with a muckin’ awesome real floral wreath, but the best part of it was being in with the great group of ladies for the rides and races… amazing times and effort across the boards. Well Done girls! Team Muckmedden, this was an amazing event, I hope to be back for the full thing next year. Thanks to the Cycle Jersey and Base Camp Bikes for the on gowing support, it was great to have you at the side lines.

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 ...Read More
