Thanks for the welcome David. I haven't ridden as much this year, but I'll be riding to Parliament House in the morning.  I may even break out the ski gloves for my first few kms down the hill from Blackwood.

Retro woolen jerseys

There is an order form for the AC jerseys in the "Shop and Stuff" drop down menu. Look for the Caps and Kit link. Final price will depend on the number of orders placed.
