Final details have been sorted and I'm pleased to announce that we are now at jersey order stage. Gary Mills at Elizabeth Star Cycles has kindly been dealing direct with the manufacturer on our behalf. We need a minimum order of 30 jerseys, but the good news is that the 30 can be made up of any combination of Jerseys A and B (see below). The jerseys will be of the same quality as the existing Gawler Wheelers jerseys and that is why I have stolen their size charts (thanks GW!).
Jersey price will be $38. Money can be collected at the conclusion of Muddies' rides and I can also get out to Becks after L rides if necessary. Cash is by far the easiest method of payment. Please PM me if you would like to make alternative arrangements.
It would be greatly appreciated if orders and payments could be finalised by Sunday 20th May.
Try to keep your orders clear eg:
1 of Jersey A, Size XL and 2 of Jersey B, Sizes M and XL
Size hint: Find your most comfortable jersey, lay it out flat on the bed (uncreased) and take the measurements of it according to the pictures above. I would say that the critical measurements would be A, B & C in that order of importance (unless you are a gym junkie with huge guns).
I will be picking up some sizes for trying on next week if you are still in doubt. I will post a message when I have them.

I started this jersey round so I intend to see it through to the best of my ability. To that end I drove to the other side of the planet and back today to pick up jerseys. I now have in my possession every size from XXS - XXXXL for anyone in doubt about the size charts.
I will be at Becks with a box of jerseys after the L ride this Sat (10am) to facilitate sizing, ordering and payment. I will also be at Riminis after the Muddies ride the following Sat 19th May. Other than that, I will try to make myself available for anyone wanting to travel to me for sizing and payment. That can be arranged any time from now on.
I still intend to have this finalised by Sun 20th May, which means all orders must then be present on this page and all payments must have been made in full. I will be driving back to the other side of the planet on Monday 21st May to return jerseys and start the production wheels in motion.
That's about as much as I can do now, so it's over to you.
Thanks Gillian, I'll be there on saturday to try on and hopefully have some cash if I'm allowed. If not I'll be at the Muddies ride the following week.
It will depend on whether I'm allowed 1 or 2.
chapeau Gillian! i will drop down to the L ride at about 10am on sat to try on the size and i will fix u up with the payment at the Muddies ride the week after if that is ok.
I called in to Gillian's Jersey Emporium today and the Large is definitely a better fit on me than the Medium.
To confirm my order Gill 1A and 1B size L.
Given the amount of debate about these jerseys and the effort Gillian (and others) have put in to get this far it would be very disappointing if we can't get enough paid and confirmed orders to proceed. If we don't get them now I suspect it will never happen.
I too will get down to Beck's on Saturday to try on and confirm order. I can't do the ride - still recovering from the Black Death.
May need to buy XL after all so is good to check. I still definitely want one of each though... Andrew.
Bunny Flu hops all over Black (man) Death! I still can't ride due to Buggered Flipper Syndrome. That and my bike is receiving TLC form Gary at Elizabeth Star Cycles.
I was going to contact you because if scrawny Pat is a large then real men are most likely an extra large :)
Scrawny ?? maybe I will go to the gym.
Hell of a good plumber though :)
Well done Gill.. 1 of Jersey A, Size L please
Onya Baron. You are now in my little black book ;-)
1 X Jersey A, size L
Gillian - I can't get to either the next L ride nor the next Muddies ride. Can you PM me with details so that I can arrange an electronic payment to you direct?
