New jersey inspired by club’s heritage unveiled on Westerham ride

The reformed club’s social ride took on special significance this month as it was the first time we got to show off our new kit.

20 riders headed to Westerham and the Cyclery Cafe with many sporting the famous red and black of Balham CC. The new kit is inspired by the club’s jersey designs of the 1940s and 50s and includes the original logo on breast and back pocket.

The club kit went into production last month four and a half months after the club went out on its first ride in January.

Ain’t we gorgeous…
