NEW Cycle Tops ~ get your order in quick!

Another order for the new cycle tops is about to be placed. If you want one – and let’s face it, how could you not! – you need to leap into action within the next couple of days. Pease advise John Murdoch (*protected email*) by Sunday 13th January at the latest, specifying size (small, medium, large, XL or XLL, bearing in mind that the jerseys are sized to be “snug”, so you may therefore require a larger size than normal) and whether short or long sleeved.  The price (£36.50 for short sleeved and £39.50 for long sleeved) is based on putting an order in for at least 10 shirts, and we will order at least that number this time. If you miss this order then it may be a while before we are able to place a further order at such a favourable price.
