Custom Sportswear UK: Tour de France t-shirts will be lining the streets of Yorkshire this weekend as the famous cycling event comes to the North East for the first time for the Grand Départ. There is plenty of British interest in the field with many people tipping Chris Froome to defend his title over the three-week race. The peloton will pass through a number of cities in England including York, Sheffield and London.
Along with growing facial hair and wearing really tight trousers, hipsters have also taken a liking to fixie bikes, which is reflected in the growing number of small fashion brands championing their style. Some of the t-shirts featured in this #tshirttuesday selection come from small brands like 8 Bar and Cycology, representing the current hipster bike trend. It is also apparent that designs featuring animals riding bikes are very popular.
Gravity Mafia is another brand that caught my eye with some really interesting t-shirt designs that concentrate more on mountain biking and Howies is a small active clothing company from the Welsh coast. We really like their Freedom t-shirt design, 10 thumbs up from team Printsome.
There are also a number of official Tour de France t-shirt designs to choose from with the classic yellow jersey represented along with a black alternative. You can also get your hands on a commemorative t-shirt to celebrate the Grand Départ in Leeds or some t-shirts from the team sponsors. Having been to one stage of the Tour de France I can safely say that if you are lucky enough to get down to one of the stages, then you will not be short of free branded merchandise with all the times sending cars down the course before the peloton handing out freebies to the crowd. I was particularly pleased with my embroidered Cofidis cap.
