It’s as traditional as turkey, mulled wine and drunken fumbling by the photocopier… I’m talking, of course, about the Christmas jumper. As you’ll see from the accompanying photos there’s been an horrific outbreak of Yule yarn in the advertising department here at Cycling Plus. For one whole week the ad team have decided to don their favourite items of Xmas-themed knitwear. Sure, they’re claiming that it’s all ironic and that they’ve purchased the jumpers specifically for the week, but I know that they’re actually wearing their best…
Of course, I’ll only wear incredibly stylish knitted jumpers – you know, the kind of thing The Wanted are wearing in the latest Esquire – but as this jumper wearing is actually part of charity fund-raising push for Breakthrough Breast Cancer, I felt that it was only right to take part. But, of course, as a cyclist I wanted a Christmassy top that was both stylish and practical. That’s when Russ Jones at Hackney GT came to my rescue. Russ originally set up Hackney GT to produce a jersey to promote his music production company but now makes and sells funky jerseys like the festive themed Alpine – perfect for ‘jumper week’ both on and off the bike! I think you’ll agree that both myself – and Jason Veall who also opted for an Alpine top – look rather more spiffing than the rest!
Keep an eye on our Facebook page over the next few days as the Alpine Jersey will be making a star appearance in a pre-Christmas bonanza competition!
(Members of both the Cycling Plus ed. and ad. team will be riding from Bath to Paris, via London for Breakthrough Breast Cancer next summer. Funds are being raised this week with a swear box – the usual reaction to the jumpers seems to begin with an ‘f’…)
