The Somme

The 1 day in every year we set aside a brief moment in time to remember the fallen.  It marks the exact day and hour World War One came to an end - the 11th day, of the 11th month - 1918.

Did you know - the first 2 minute silence in Britain was held on 11.11.1919 by King George V; who pleaded 'the thoughts of everyone may be concentrated on reverent remembrance of the glorious dead'.

Remembrance Sunday is fast approaching, so we want to do our part by promoting the right people and charities and raising awareness.  We do our own part in raising awareness of various charities, by creating fully and semi custom cycle jerseys to the best of our ability.  We use high quality material, impressive machinery and a unique production process, which allows us to be involved in every step of the design and manufacturing process - from initial enquiry to posting the garments ourselves.,

Remember Evan?  A.K.A the Battlefield Piper?  Earlier this year we provided him with various cycle apparel garments (free of charge, of course) including: a fully custom road jersey, a lightweight jacket and a pair of bib-shorts.  This was all in order for him to take on  his personal challenge to mark the 100th anniversary of the Battle of the Somme; he cycled from Edinburgh to Dover (527 miles), then ran to Peronne Cemetery (France).  You can read more about his challenge here, as he regularly stopped to commemorate this important anniversary.

And Callum Skinner?  Rio Gold Medallist for Team Sprint, he also launched Poppy Scotland's new  #ExtraMile campaign, in Edinburgh Waverly Station, a week or so ago.  Talking of Poppy Scotland, I'm sure our loyal fans have seen our custom gallery on Facebook - but for those of you who haven't (yet), here's some custom jerseys we made earlier...
