For years, the thought of custom cycling kit conjured up the image of a tiny fraction of society - the club rider.

Big Boys Bicycle Club was a glorious mistake, a strange beast that ought never to have lived, yet wound up flourishing in the harsh and fiercely competitive eco-system of London cycling clubs.

"We started Mission Cycling with a lot of goals in mind but a central idea was to create a great looking kit that was representative of our neighborhood, The Mission, and everything that makes it one of the most creative and dynamic in the world. In order to achieve that goal we have always maintained high standards for kit design and materials."
With a motto "By Racers, For Racers", we are very proud to make the club kit for Leeds' FTR Race Club. Set up in 2016 by a close group of Yorkshire-based friends frustrated with the traditional club model, we decided to forge our own path. We train, we race and we have fun. FTR Race Club is based in and around the Leeds area and aims to provide a fun, friendly and competitive place for riding, training and racing.

Das Rad Klub began as a small group of friends in 2013, we had a number of bright jerseys produced to wear on rides & at local races. We started building a reputation locally as ‘those pink and blue guys’ who stood out at any race we attended, no matter on the result.
