- WPW jerseys and vests: With the newly designed logo, we have been working with Primal to create new club jerseys and vests. These can be ordered online from now until July 13, 2017 at midnight MST at which point the online store closes. Here are the details:
To place an order, please follow the link below to create an account or login if you already have an account with Primal Custom Pro.
- Each member will pay for their garments at the time of ordering. Mens-cut or womens-cut jerseys are $70 and vests are $66.
- These are custom jerseys and take time for Primal to produce.
- The club will get a bulk delivery just prior to Fall Rally in early September.
- This single bulk delivery option saves each member and the club a $10 per item shipping charge as shipping is free for this single bulk delivery method.
- If you have led (or plan to lead) 5+ rides this year, please contact me about special ordering instructions as a ride leader appreciation.

Happy New Year!
We continued our tradition of starting the new year with Icicle Bicycle beginning at REI in Southside Works. Over 100 riders braved the cold and Steelers’ fans for a ride around town, and several met up at Claddaugh after the ride for socializing, food, and beer.
Happy New Year!
Keeping with tradition, we kicked off the new year with Icicle Bicycle starting near the REI in Southside Works on January 1. Nearly 100 cyclists braved the cold and the Steelers’ Fans for a 20+ mile ride around the city. Several cyclists met afterwards at Claddaugh for some socializing, food, and beer.
We’ll be holding our first board meeting of the year soon and would love to take your input into consideration while planning out events for the year. Stay tuned.
