My stuff came yesterday.  Many thanks

went and picked up a parcel from the post office and it was my kit

it is lovely, thanks schmunks!! I can fit into it now so I don't have to wait to lose weight

do I have to cycle in the cold now?? how warm is the cycling jacket? how many layers do you put underneath? I don't want to be cold, but don't want to overheat either

love the quality of the material, it feels lovely

I went out yesterday in a cycle jersey, the jacket and a very thin waterproof and was pretty toasty

Mine has arrived today. I'm wearing the gilet as I clean the bike. I don't have to actually wear it outside do I ??

Thank you for organising - you're fab !

Received, thanks Schmunks!  Can't wait for my first race outing as a Pirate.

thanks matt, guess the best thing is to have a ride where I go past my house after abut 30 minutes, then if I am too hot/cold I can always stop and put on/take off clothes

I'd always have a base layer and bike top beneath a jersey. Maybe two tips if it's cold. And I'd usually take a rain jacket in a pocket too.

You should feel a little cool heading out. If youre warm from the start - then you'll probably overheat.

ok, well, have to just give it a go and see what works for me.

I've only ever worn a base layer under the jacket, unless it was really cold (-6 once), then I wore everything I owned.

maths I had a long sleeved base layer under a long sleeved cycle top then my pirate jacket and was fine once I'd got going

totally tell the difference to wearing a running jacket

All received and it is great quality, fits really well, I love it but the only comment from my other half was that it looked a bit gimpy (monaco and cycle shorts not a cycle jacket), not sure if that means she thinks it looks sexy or not .

If our paths cross at an event or social I will definitely by shouting you a drink for all your hard work. well done and thank you.

i did originally think the sleeves were too long but they fit over my garmin and onto my gloves so no cold patches

my arse is still a bit big mind!

Beautiful monaco and cycle jacket arrived today. Both fit perfectly and are absolutely fabulous.

Many, many thanks  and hugs to Schmunkee and her glamorous assistant for all the hard work xxxx 

 Coz it felt like Christmas again!
