Just a Few of the Cedar Cycling and PiNP Jersey Details
CedarPINP_color-2-655

Last year, at NAHBS, I met Jeremy and Neil from Cedar Cycling, a new cycling wear brand. Using high-end New Zealand merino wool and local manufacturing, I knew Cedar was really doing something genuine and legit. Over a bottle of bourbon, we discussed working on a jersey. But since they had barely just launched their brand, we knew it would be some time before we’d have samples.

Earlier in the summer, I met up with them in SF to look at fabrics and discuss the jersey in detail. Then, just last week, I finally got my hands on one. I was really, really impressed. This is one of the nicest jerseys I’ve ever owned. We worked really hard getting everything right, especially the fit. It’s form-fitting, without being race cut. The sleeves sit just right and the front lies flat on your chest.

One of my biggest qualms with a lot of jerseys that I own is the pocket room. Especially during the winter. You end up stuffing arm warmers, a gillet and gloves into your pockets on the daily.  These jerseys have both pocket room and ample reinforced stitching to help maintain its intended shape. It fits great and is incredibly comfortable. What I’m trying to say is, this is far from just a new “colorway”…

I just signed off on the production sample and the full run is currently being made by hand in Oakland, California. Expect a delivery mid-January and we’ll be running a discounted pre-order after the new year. For now, here’s a few of the details.

Apparel Made in California
Cedar Cycling

Let’s just say, I met the Cedar Cycling guys after chasing them down, ultra hungover at NAHBS. Neil and Jeremy have both been around the industry for long enough to know what they wanted in a cycling line. They wanted to create simple, classic cycling apparel, made to be worn everyday and they wanted to make by hand it in California. We got to chatting and immediately, I knew these two meant business. They showed me some samples of their merino garments and I was sold on the quality, right off the bat.

A couple of emails back and forth and the word “collaboration” was tossed around, so the last time I was in SF, I sat down with Jeremy and Neil to discuss a run of jerseys, all made in the USA and designed to be your go-to kit for year-round riding.
