Time to look good
The Wheelers have a Bioracer online shop for club members to order kit. Typically, there will be an order window opened three times a year for club members to size up, order and pay for Club clothing. Members will be contacted with the order dates. The clothing is delivered to our Clothing Officer Lynda Pride, and can be collected from Lynda, or at the Canewdon Clubroom.
The committee are taking the opportunity with the 100 years celebration in 2023 to propose a redesign the club jersey.
Our longstanding clothing supplier, Bioracer will be working with the committee to create some options for the membership to consider. The committee will be presenting Bioracer with some design parameters.
Bioracer explained that the recent delay in fulfilling the last order was due to new production machinery not coming online quickly enough. Bioracer normally quote a 6-to-8-week delivery but is currently quoted at 8-10 weeks due to supply chain issues with materials.
The advantage that Bioracer now have is that they own the production facilities, which are based in Europe, so they are not at the whim of 3rd party factories.
Russell Hampton is the Bioracer rep that looks after the Wheelers account, and when an order window is open, Russell can visit the club room on two occasions to ensure members can try on the sizing samples, and samples can also be left with Lynda Pride, our clothing officer.
There is a made to measure option at extra cost if a member wanted to specify a longer back or longer sleeves on a garment.
Once the new design is agreed and available, the club would need to register the new design with British Cycling. Any member who is a 3rd cat or above, may need to comply with BC Technical Regulation R2.2.3. There are similar Regulations for Cyclo Cross, MTB and Track racing. Those members who race at that level need to be aware of the current design being superceded.
There are no such registrations needed with Cycling Time Trials, VTTA, BMCR or TLI organisations. Club Time Trials or our road or track days don’t have any clothing stipulations.
