Thank you to all those who emailed to indicate interest in cycling gear.
Sorry it has taken some time to get back to you. I have been trying to
organise some discounts for cold-weather cycling gear at a few local
retailers. Thus far two have agreed in principle and should have
confirmation soon. However, as the cold weather has already hit us
thought I better send some info through now.
Come meet our buddy Ned.
The rideshop in Braddon has loaned us some winter cycling apparel and we
have set up a little display in the ANUgreen office which you can come
have a look at. (Apparel modelled by our lovely manikin, Ned). We also
have a couple of catalogues for people to flick through.
Links to websites
In addition, to bicycle shops, you might also check out the websites
This site sells cycling and other outdoor apparel. It has a lot of
specials (possibly last season's gear?) so there are a lot of bargains.
Last time I had a look there was a jacket selling for $2.99.
A New Zealand-based company. The clothing is apparently very good
quality (according to Su) and is reasonably priced. Fairly extensive
range of items. In the FAQ section you can get a description of the
different fabrics and the qualities of each.
(Have not come across any sites supplying organic or 'fair trade' cycle
clothing so if anyone knows of any please post a link.)
Rear-view Mirrors Coming Soon
I have also ordered some rear-view mirrors and should hopefully have
them in within a week or so.
