Tour de Bristol

Your kit

Please make sure your bike is in good working order and perfect technical condition before you set off on your ride. Safety-approved cycling helmets are compulsory, we recommend cycle helmets complying with ANSI Z90/4 or SNELL standards. Cycling shoes, shorts and jerseys are also recommended.

Once again, we have partnered with Italian cycling company Ale to bring you a custom designed Tour de Bristol jersey that's stylish as well as comfortable. The jerseys will be made in a thin and breathable material with full length zip and back pockets. The new design for 2024 involves green gradients along the bottom and a bright yellow along the sides to really stand out. Jerseys are available to purchase when you sign up for the event, and also via our online shop.

Please check the size guide, they are a very close fit and so you may need to order one size larger than you normally would:

Size Guide: Chest widths of 48cm/S, 50cm/M, 52cm/L, 54cm/XL, 56cm/XXL, 58cm/XXXL

Tolerance +/- 2cm

Jerseys will be posted to you nearer to the event date, and you will be kept updated on when to expect it. They will also be available to purchase on the day - however, stock is very limited so secure yours now!
