Black Sheep Cycling
I have been lucky enough to be a Black Sheep Cycling ambassador for a year now. Their love of cycling is contagious and what better way than to go riding in a kit that looks and feels damn good.
But to me, Black Sheep is more than a cycling brand. It is simply a company that creates friendly communities, tells amazing stories, promotes womens cycling and just so happens to make amazing pieces of lycra.
To break it down, Black Sheep have three core ranges: LIMITED, Essentials and for those that still tough it out in the winter, The Elements Collection. The LIMITED Range is here one minute, gone the next. It’s where the team at Black Sheep go nuts, they draw inspiration from anything and everything and create something truly unique. Don’t worry, Black Sheep will let you know when a new LIMITED range is on the way. So if you’re feeling for one or two or more kits, act fast.
As the name suggests, the Essentials are like your favourite 80s band, timeless and you could rock to it each and everyday. Along with seasonal colours, the Essentials come in two variant weights and an all new merino fabric for an even softer feel. Now, The Elements Collection will make your wind-trainer go dusty, as this collection is made to rule out any excuses to get out during the winter. Rain, wind or snow, they have you covered.
My all time favourite jersey is a punchy pink from the Euro Collection. It’s one I’ve had for a while and no matter how many times I wear it, it fits perfectly each and every time. And I have an especially strong liking for the Summer Of Love kits, you just can’t pass them by.
If you’ve got the time, go watch their ‘Man Ride’ documentary or just read some of their inspiring stories. And if you’re like me, you’ll fall in love with the kits at first sight, so why not sign up so you don’t miss out on anything!
