Founded on the rolling roads of the Kent countryside, we say RUE MORGUE CC is the sharpest club around. We may not be the fastest or busiest club, but our outlook is matched by the crisp lines of our kit, keeping us looking sharp on any start line or cafe queue. Now extending from Scotland to Colorado.
We roll out / sprint for town lines / drills & kills for hills before coffee & cake.
The club comes out of a few friends wanting something other than a traditional cycling club to be represented by.
Taking the name from a line in Dylan’s ‘Just Like Tom Thumb’s Blues’, referencing the Edgar Allen Poe story ‘The Murders in the Rue Morgue’, we built the club around thoughts of thoughts of digging in for those extra miles / efforts / climbs / attacks / putting ourselves in the red, for both ‘ristrettos and racing’, which is why we have our club mantra of sorts subtlety placed on our jersey ‘BURY YOURSELF & KEEP ON KEEP ON KEEPING ON’.... the latter once again being a Dylan reference to 1975’s ‘Tangled Up In Blue’.
We train in black and black and for race days, along with the most important of riders, the cafe spin, it’s BLACK & BLOOD that adorns the shoulders of RMCC riders.
A circular logo of GTO is worn proudly on the shoulders of our kit, which represents not only the club favourite motor of the GRAN TURISMO OMOLOGATO (certified for racing) but also another Dylan reference, GOTTA TRAVEL ON.
The club kit is such an important part of what we’re about. It’s through the sharp lines of black and blood that we build our identity. The pro kit is the best we’ve worn, working well in all conditions, keeping us comfortable and feeling fast on the bike. We rarely leave the cafe or a race / event without compliments on the design, which Milltag worked tirelessly with us to achieve. The jersey, bibs, cap and gilet work perfectly together, keeping ‘old skool cool’ fresh and fast on kentish roads.
