With the possible exception of the training camp in Spain, today was my highlight of the year with the club. Not because we won something, we didn’t even race, but what the sight of 10 riders resplendent in new kit signified.
For one, I think the new kit heralds a new era of development for the club. Our partnership with AURA Cycles promises to benefit both parties as club and business develop. Plus, the kit looks swish! Thanks to Matt Wilson (Joint President) and the guys at AURA for designing such a great kit.
Secondly, the number of riders and the quality of riders presents a huge step up for the club. Though we won’t be gaining as many BUCS points this year as last year, thanks a couple of outstanding riders graduating, to have 10 riders out on an 85km ride at 32km/h shows a major leap in quality from last year.
