The Climate Stripes, which visually displays the average temperature of the last 150 years, makes it clear at once: The last 20 years were the warmest on record. Our cycling wear is largely made of recycled materials. The clothing is ready for you at the start location in Utrecht or Breda. In Breda you can also pick them up the evening before at hotel Princeville (Van der Valk) between 17:00 and 18:00.

Do you prefer to get your clothes earlier? Then you can pick them up at Central Events on Friday 17 June between 9:00 and 17:00. Address: Kanaalweg 15G, 3526 KL in Utrecht. 

Climate Stripes Shirt

The new Cycling 4 Climate cycling jersey is made by Velor, a young sustainable company with the mission to make the bicycle clothing industry more sustainable. And we want that too!

In short

✔️ 95% recycled material, including the zips
✔️ Breathable material in the body
✔️ Elastic material in the sleeves for optimal fit
✔️ Neat fit, with red neck
✔️ Three back pockets, plus a small zipped pocket for your keys

The short-sleeved shirt from the Pure line is made of high-quality, innovative Italian fabrics. These are made of 95% recycled material. This gives the material a 50% lower carbon footprint compared to other shirts. The fabric is very comfortable, breathable, and has an excellent fit. 

Practicalities have been thought of too: there are three regular pockets on the back, plus an additional zippered pocket to protect your valuables. 

In addition, zip protectors - called zipper pockets - make sure that the zips do not irritate your skin. And you know what the great thing about the zips is? They are also made from recycled materials!

The fabrics are certified according to GRS, BLUESIGN®, OEKO-TEX® and ISO 14001 standards, which guarantees sustainable production and full traceability along the entire value chain.

Velor is a Dutch bicycle clothing brand created by brothers Florian and Mickaël Jardin, Peter Roozemond, and former professional cyclist Tom Leezer. Velor's mission is to change the bicycle clothing industry by developing truly sustainable bicycle clothing.

Climate Stripes Socks

Together with our friends from Sockeloen we have developed a new sustainable cycling sock. We have chosen to make the sock from organically grown Merino wool. This is due to the combination of durability and comfort. The comfortable and moisture regulating effect that this material naturally has, ensures optimal moisture regulation. This is partly due to the natural fats that are standard in this sheep's wool. The design is as inspired as ever by the 'Climate Stripes'.

Available in sizes 36-42 and 43-48
19 cm high measured from the heel of the sock

40% Merino Wool
35% Acrylic
20% Polyamide
5% Elastan


Climate Stripes Cycling Trousers

The cycling shorts from the Pure line are made from high-quality, innovative Italian fabrics. The trousers and braces are made of 92% post-consumer recycled material. The fabrics are elastic and breathable. Everything to make sure you have a nice and comfortable ride; at least from a clothing perspective, because steep mountains can't be flattened!

A high-end chamois was chosen so that it remains comfortable even on very long rides. Unfortunately, it is not yet made of recycled materials. Velor has not yet succeeded in producing a top chamois from recycled materials.

Of course, a different chamois is used in the cycling shorts for women and men, but the sizing is the same. See the size chart below.
