The organisers of the GE Chiltern Cycling Festival are delighted to announce that ShuttVR will be supporting them with £1500 worth of prizes at each of their events next Summer. Following the recent launch of Shutts retro inspired “Heritage Jersey” the oxfordshire based outfit will be providing prizes for competitors in the Concors d’elegance parades that proved so popular with vintage fans last year. Entrants will be judged in various categories from best restored bike to finest deportment, expect plenty of high jinx and good natured retro rivalry. With many of the riders also entering the classic sportives through the Chilterns earlier in the day, the Concors is proofing to be a great way to catch up post ride, swop notes and generally enjoy the relaxed atmosphere of simpler times, Set in the grounds of two quintessential British country houses both Penn House and Chenies Manor look like being exceptionally well dressed next year.
The Heritage jerseys that Shutt are supplying for the Winners in each category is a real bobby dazzler…it takes inspiration from the spirit of cycling’s golden age; Think Tom Simpson and Barry Hoban in their Mercier sponsored jerseys, Mercx in his iconic Molteni kit and Coppi in his Bianchi jersey and you are there. With the Concors open to bikes and riders of all ages as long as they are in the vintage spirit these two events really are the place to share your cycling passion.
Shutts Simon Callery says “Partnering with the Chiltern Cycling Festivals will enable us to show our range to an audience that are passionate about cycling. We Pay homage to yesteryear’s cycling style whilst retaining all the benefits and performance of modern fabrics when you wear Shutt’s Heritage jersey.”
