These WOMBATS shirts are a revival of the original dirt shirt doled out by Jacquie Phelan in the 90s during the early days or NORBA. Sales from these shirts go to help out Charlie Cunningham and Jacquie in Fairfax, CA. What exactly is WOMBATS?
“Women’s Mountain Bike and Tea Society- was started by Jacquie around 1986, after a few years of racing and riding in the early days of the Marin County mountain bike scene, and seeing how the sport was steadily becoming a “blood’n’guts arena for truly gnarly (but also trendy!) dudes”. The idea was to make a welcoming space for women to get into some off-road riding, without making them feel like they had something to prove. Chapters popped up and grew to hundreds of members across the US, hosting rides and skills workshops, with a focus on outreach and expansion, to spread the joy and love of dirt to as many people as possible.”
The pre-sale at Omaha Screen Co lasts through August 23rd and these shirts should print/ship by end of the month.
