The Giro is here

This week has seen some exciting things happen at CAF HQ.


Firstly we had the release of the Fingerscrossed 100/100 collection that sold out within hours of going on sale.



The 100/100 is a limited edition collection. One hundred pairs of socks will be embroidered and numbered. 100/100 creates individuality of unique pieces. These unique pieces we come together as one piece. This will be illustrated in a world map which shows how global and boundless the sport and community of cycling is.

Next saw the arrival of CAF Cycling Apparel custom kits made by Spin Cycle Clothing with a choice of chamois, cut and style the possibilities are incredible. 

At CAF we can supply custom kit in any quantity from solo jerseys to club and team kits. 

The Caf kits aren't currently for sale but if you see one around the lanes or leading out a sprint and would like one please drop us an email.

Finally today marks the start of the 100th Giro d'Italia and the 1st Grand Tour of 2017.

Who do we think will be on the top step on GC in 3 weeks time with lots of strong contenders from all over the world.

Will local northern lad Adam Yates riding for Australian outfit Orica Scott be able to hang with some of the continental mountain goats?


Can Geraint Thomas lead Team Sky to their first Giro GC win or maybe Mikel Landa will spit his dummy out and attack if he's feeling strong like 2 years ago when riding for Astana?

Maybe last years winner Vicenzo Nibali can make it back to back wins or will Steven Kruijswijk of Lotto Jumbo make amends for last years disaster when crashing into a snow bank when in the maglia rosa?

One things for sure it will be a great 3 weeks of racing whoever you're cheering for.

If you are wanting to get your rosa on have a look at our selection of pink jerseys from The Pedla and Spin cycle Clothing here or our sock ranges here carrying all different shades to match your mood.

Thanks for taking the time to read this weeks newsletter.

Have great weekend.
