The garment described below is machine washable, it is recommended to wash at 30° to guarantee an optimal life span and a godd resistance of the fabrics.

Observation : this material has a very high capacity to evacuate perpiration to the vers outside. SIts synthetic fibres keep the body at its ideal temperature at all times and avoid the sensations of cold and humidity.
Its design allows the garment to completely evacuate water vapour thanks to a double action: the fabric is made up of two superposed faces: the inner face made up of standard textured yarns with high capillarity, transmits perspiration to the outer face, made up of micro-strands that immediately reject it to the outside.

For this cycling jersey, the size can vary according to the comfort required: sizes XS to L correspond to a sharp profile "close to the body". Sizes XL to 6XL are larger, for people who want to have more comfort depending on their build.

This type of cycling jersey and not the cyclotourism jersey "very small size", type, with the experience of the 200 jerseys already sold, we advise you to de take at least one additional size over the size of your usual jersey, for information see the recommendation in relation to your chest size in the order form.

Presentation of the European Week

There is a Europe of summits, a Europe of daily life, close to us, both of which build a Europe of citizens. The European Cyclotourism Week can help these citizens to get to know each other.

The European Cycling Tourism Week is intended to be an international celebration, it is organised only once a year and takes place during one week in mid-July in one of the countries affiliated to the European Cycling Union.

Cyclotourism is above all the practice of an activity of relaxation, leisure, and of course a sporting activity in its own right. A sport without a race, without a stopwatch, without a ranking, only for fun and without a schedule: free start, number of free kilometres, free itinerary. The discovery of a region, a country in a friendly atmosphere, and thus to be able to get to know cyclists from the four corners of this new Europe, this is the spirit of the European Cyclotourism Week.

Staszow 2018 - youth training

Following the UECT instructor harmonisation training course held in Staszów from 13 to 15 April, I invite you to read the article published in Cyclo Mag FFCT and the following extract

! Poland, the next host country for cycling schools

From 13 to 15 April 2018, a harmonisation training course for UECT cycle tourism instructors was given in Staszów (Poland) by Alina Koson-Clement (UECT Youth Activities Manager) and Jean Marie Maillard (FFCT instructor) with the logistical support of the local managers. 8 cyclists (4 Polish and 4 Ukrainians), 6 of whom were women, took part in this training course, which will provide the best conditions for welcoming and supervising the young cyclists participating in the European Week 2018. A very constructive training and a very positive experience that should lead to the creation in the near future of the first Polish cycling school in Staszów, under the responsibility of Slawomir Migalski, local head of the PTTK cyclo federation in collaboration with the UECT. The FFCT know-how in cycling tourism school is being exported to Europe and we hope that this Polish example will also be reflected in the other UECT members, Portugal is also studying the establishment of a cycling school in 2019, which bodes well for the years to come...
