Vélo Birmingham & Midlands 2020

The countdown is on to the 2020 Vélo Birmingham & Midlands sportive.

How many days, we hear you ask? As of the 21st February, there’s 121 days to go. If you’re taking part in the event, we imagine you’ve began mapping out your training routes and started thinking about the event a little more. Maybe the nerves & realisation of the challenge is  beginning to creep in?

As the Official Cycle Kit Supplier for the event, we’re providing official merchandise for participants and fans of the event.

This is more than a general partnership. There’s local chemistry here. Our head office is just over 30 miles from the start/finish line, while the 2017 event passed through our magnificent county of Worcestershire.

So, why are we involved with the 2020 Vélo Birmingham & Midlands event? We’re known in the cycling world for our superb charity cycling jerseys, utilised by charities of all sizes across the UK for their fundraisers.

But we’re much more than that these days. Over the years, we’ve worked with some of the biggest cycling clubs around, including Salt & Sham Cycling Club. We’re able to produce custom cycling kit of all types, styles and quality. No matter what your club needs, Scimitar is able to provide.

Then there’s our newer premium line of retail cycling apparel. Our range of premium cycling jerseys is made with 100% recycled polyester, a unique lightweight construction and a specific aero fit. It’s gone down well; the product has been picked up by a number of established cycling publications and is bridging the gap between super premium and affordable quality.

The years have been kind to us, and we don’t intend to stop our progress. Outside of the charity cycling jerseys, we’re keen to expand our cycling club base and have a number of exciting, enticing offers for all types of cycling clubs.

The retail range of 100% recycled premium cycling jerseys are available with 30% off for first orders. Sample the future of affordable sustainability with Scimitar. Enter WELCOME30 at checkout for your discount. Shop the range here.

Anyway, now that the shameless plug of our recycled cycling apparel is out of the way, it’s back to the event. Are you cycling for a charity? We’d love to know who and why your cycling the 2020 Vélo Birmingham & Midlands. Let us know on Twitter by clicking the link below.
