For 2019, we are again offering custom RCC clothing from Louis Garneau. You may go to their store now to order our new arm warmers and our 2018 jersey and bib shorts, which are available in men’s cuts. Garneau's store for RCC is open until Thursday, March 21 at 11 PM, so now is the time to order and pay for your 2019 club kit. Your next opportunity to order a these items will be 2021, or later.
Those of you who own our 2018 kit know the quality and fit of Garneau kit. And, if you have the 2018 shorts, you know that they have an incredibly comfortable chamois.
The price for our custom arm warmers is $21, our men's jersey is $35, and the men's bib shorts are $70. The discounts and dollars from our sponsors mean that we can offer a quality kit at prices you won't find anywhere else. Unfortunately, we cannot offer the jersey and shorts in women’s cuts this year, because we won’t make the minimum quantity.
The club gear is custom made for RCC, so make sure that you order the right size for your body, because you cannot exchange it for a different size or order a replacement. The jersey runs large, so you may want a smaller size than you typically wear. If you are unsure of your size requirements, you should go to Grand Performance for a fitting.
We have also placed an order for 120 pairs of socks for the club through GP. The socks will be offered for sale until they are gone, and then we can order more with a new design.
We want to continue to offer our members new kit each year. Some items, like jerseys and shorts, are worn often and need frequent replacement, while arm warmers and vests have a longer life. Here’s our kit plan for the next three years.
2019 – Arm warmers, men’s jersey and bib shorts, and socks
2020 – Warm long sleeve jersey, cycling cap, and socks
2021 – New jersey and shorts for women and men
