Team Orbea For Goodness Shakes!
I love it when a plan comes together. For the past 14 months that this blog has existed, I have been plugging away with a combination of things that make my cycling special. The most special thing, obviously, is getting out in the fresh air, in the countryside, and enjoying the feeling of freedom that our sport pecipitates. However, we live in a material world, as Sting once famously noted, and as such the question of which brands you nail your tattered flag to matters a bit too.
Imagine my interest, and growing sense of quiet satisfaction, then, when I was recently in correspondence with Peter Bragg from Yorkshire cycling kit suppliers Shutt Velo Rapide, a further article about whom is posted below. Peter mentioned that SVR have recently become the kit supplier for the new 2010 Team Orbea For Goodness Shakes! (their exclamation mark). Further investigation reveals that the team’s choice of kit co-incides largely with my own. You can read the full story here.
My own tastes co-incide nicely with the team’s, it would appear. Orbea bikes, AmClassic wheels, Shutt VR clothing, just a shame they won’t fit nice Brooks saddles and Carradice saddle bags as well!!
