The 2018 Penzance Wheelers kit has landed!
Not only is it a new design (in the great lineage of club colours red, white and blue) but things like cut, materials, structure and detailing are bang up to date too.
The other new departure is that you buy it online. You go to the ‘Club NoPinz’ section of the NoPinz website, go to Penzance Wheelers, and order the clothing you want individually.
You need a password access it, obtain the password by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org
To help you with sizing, the club has bought short sleeved jerseys in sizes XS, S, M, Land XL. These jerseys are not for sale they are purely for trying on, so that you know what size to order when you go online. The jerseys, they’ll be available at The Star on Tuesdays for trying on, and by arrangement by e-mailing email@example.com
It's an Intermedia jacket – Windtex and water repellant, but lighter than a full-on heavy garment for freezing conditions. The reason? It's ideal for Cornish winters, where it gets cold yes, but the thermometer rarely gets down to nought. Consequently the jacket will cover more months of the year (winter, but also those chilly mornings in April for example). In short, you'll get really good use out of it. See here for details
Exclusive club bidons are available from Lloyd at £2.50 each. He usually has a supply with him at The Star on Tuesday nights. So kit yourself out and add style to any ride.
A very young Tom Southam waiting to start his first ever road race at Castle Coombe in 1994 wearing the then current PZW jersey (allegedly borrowed from Mike Tonkin). Tom went on to become a professional rider of international repute, representing Great Britain at the Worlds.
Mike Tonkin stayed at Penzance Wheelers and rides for the club to this day...
Here, Tom Southam, Andy Ellis and Jason Ball are wearing the last but one jersey design. This jersey is still seen on today's club rides from time to time.
This version of the PZW kit dates back to the 1980's. The rider is Keith Lilley. Note the red bar tape and cables (which were clearly chosen to match the jersey) plus the old-style down tube levers and much loved Turbo saddle. Oh, and the 'hair net' headgear...
This was the club jersey design up until the end of 2012.

Why wear club kit?
You don't have to, but here are some reasons why you might wish to:
- It looks good!
- It promotes the club
- You'll feel you belong
- It provides the club with an obvious identity whether it is at TT events, races, sportives or club runs
- It's quality kit
- It's highly visibile, which gets you noticed and helps keep you safe.
So let’s get everyone in club kit so that we look like a proper unified club on the roads! We are Penzance Wheelers!
