LIMITED EDITION ICC 'Tour de France' Jersey NOW AVAILABLE!I'm delighted to make available (for a limited period of time) this special edition 'Tour de France' short-sleeved cycling jersey. I've worked with Bioracer to have this jersey designed to mark the special occasion of the Tour coming through Yorkshire (and of course, Ilkley!) this July.Details of both Yorkshire stages (and place names) are printed on the jersey. It should be a great memento of the occasion, and, a great piece of cycling kit as well!To order the jersey all you need to do is pop into Ilkley Cycles on Skipton Road. The guys in the shop now have this on the ordering system. For men, the order code is 51338 (state you want theTour de France jersey). For ladies, the order code is 51338D (state you want the Tour de france jersey). The jersey costs £40.95 (including VAT). Please note: we are doing this in short sleeve only, no shorts or variations.Order 1 will be going into Bioracer Monday 7th April, so you have two weeks to get into the shop and order your jersey if you want one of the first batch. The expected delivery on these is 5-7 weeks. We will be putting in another order for these jerseys sometime in May.PLEASE ENSURE YOU CHECK THE BIORACER SIZE CHARTS ON THE WEBSITE (OR AT ILKLEY CYCLES) TO ENSURE YOU ORDER THE CORRECT SIZE.JERSEY DETAILS: The Quadri short sleeve jersey is light and comfortable. With the Quadri shirt, Bioracer combines the lightness of Cool Light fabric with the durability of Airtex fabric. This mono-elastic fabric that is used has a positive effect on the perfect fit of the shirt. Finished with three rear pockets and a long lockable zipper.PLEASE ALSO REMEMBER YOU CAN NOW PLACE AN ORDER FOR ANY OTHER ITEM OF BIORACER OR HALO KIT AT THE COUNTER IN ILKLEY CYCLES.Paul Di Mambro ICC Kit Officer
ICC Club Kit
Dear ICC member, I have been chasing Halo Sports for a delivery date for the recent kit order. It appears the delay (thus far) has been related to the initial set up process and manufacturing challenges in Italy. Progress is now being made on all fronts and Halo Sports assure me that delivery of this order will be made no later than the 28th March. I will communicate with you again as soon as I have taken delivery of the kit, or before if necessary. Thanks for your patience. Best Regards, Paul
NEW KIT ORDERING SYSTEM For 2014
We've decided on some key changes that, we believe, will make the kit buying experience a simpler and better one for our members. The main change is that we will be working in partnership with Ilkley Cycles and all ICC kit will now be managed through the Ilkley Cycles shop on Skipton Road.
We will continue to work with two kit suppliers; Halo Sports kit and Bioracer. However, the existing paper-based ordering system will be replaced by:
- Kit will be available to buy direct from Ilkley Cycles
We have looked at member buying patterns over the past 18 months and have selected a 'core' range of kit that we will sell direct through the shop. For both Halo Sports and Bioracer, these will be as follows: short sleeve jersey, long sleeve jersey, gilet, spring jacket, winter jacket, bib shorts, bib tights. Depending on the time of year, some items of kit will be ordered in greater volume (e.g. more short sleeve jerseys as we get close to summer, more winter jackets as we get closer to winter). In addition to this, the shop will also stock a Bioracer skin suit (in a small range of sizes) around the time of race season.
- Kit can be ordered direct from Ilkley Cycles
We expect to be able to meet most of the demand for kit through the shop stock, however, there will (of course) be times when a member may wish to purchase an item of kit that is either, A. not in stock, or B. not one of the 'core' items stocked by the shop. In either case, members can simply order the desired kit item at the shop counter (all kit items for the full range of Halo Sports and Bioracer are now on the Ilkley Cycles ordering system). Ilkley Cycles will submit an order to Halo Sports and Bioracer approximately every month. The kit will normally be delivered to the shop 4-6 weeks later. Members will be notified directly by the shop when their kit has arrived.
As kit officer, I will communicate regularly with members, through the website and the Facebook page, to ensure members know exactly when the next order is being submitted by Ilkley Cycles. This will enable members to place orders for any items shortly before the shop place the order, thus minimising the time from order to delivery. In addition to this, for 2014 we are making available a range of 'off the bike' ICC leisurewear kit items. These are also held in stock at Ilkley Cycles and include: t-shirts, polo shirts, hooded sweatshirts, soft-shell jackets, beanie hats and caps.
The first shop oder to Halo Sports and Bioracer will be placed week commencing 3rd March. We (therefore) expect that a large supply of kit will be available to buy directly from the shop approximately week commencing 21st April. As of Monday 3rd March, any member can go into Ilkley Cycles and place an order for specific items at the counter. Please bear with us as we make these important changes. For a club the size of ICC there isn't a 'perfect' system for kit management. There will undoubtedly be a learning curve as we try to get the right balance of supply and demand for the shop stock. Having said that, we believe this is the best way forward for the clubs kit management and for improving the experience of buying kit for our members. One other key benefit of switching to this approach is that members will have the opportunity to try on kit. This should mean we have few (if any) difficulties related to kit that 'doesn't fit' when it's delivered.

Bioracer supply various national and professional teams along with many clubs. They offer a vast range of kit including race jerseys, women's-specific and childrens kit.
