Historically, the Penny Farthing was the first machine to be called a bicycle and now the word “penny” is a description of something inexpensive.
Nowadays cycling is much more of a recreation and part of the global community. We see more Cycle Clubs which has made cycling become much more accessible and enjoyed by millions. Although people are riding for fitness, enjoyment or convenience in places like Cornwall, despite the emergence of cycle paths, cycling has also become much more dangerous too and the need for Hi-Visibility clothing is paramount.
Road cycling, in particular, is commanding our attention in Cornwall. With role models like Chris Froome, Tour de France Champion, and Lizzie Armistead, Road Race World Champion, cycling is bringing people together in events such as the Tour de Yorkshire with its stunning scenery, Ride to the Somme, Etape Du Tour or even many are now exploring islands like Madeira on bike tours.According to Sports Insight magazine this month, a recent survey ranked cycling as second only to cricket among the country’s top 10 sports.
We recognise cycling clothing is a necessary expense, although it does not need be expensive. We can customise to you with your chosen event and make you proud when wearing them.
