Got a couple road cycling jerseys for sale, plus one MTB jersey.

Size is XL, but if you wear medium t shirts they will fit ya.

Little too snug for me.

All items brand new in original packaging and all labels still attached

Coast to Coast registration is open.
It's a nice way to see the country in a controlled ride with police escort, frequent stops and refreshments during and after the ride.

Route looks mostly flat this year.
Waterloo -> Orange Field -> SMR -> Chaguanas -> Caroni Savannah Rd -> Munroe Rd -> Kelly -> St. Helena -> Las Lomas -> Grande -> Manzan
I'll look for the official plot route - it was sent via whatsapp but can't find it atm

Last year was some good climbs thru Talparo.
You can do it - I've seen some kids finish strong (10+ years old).

Fall in!

Ended up sending it back for store credit.
Sorry bruh. Decided that eating the shipping cost was the most cost effective way of getting back some $

Nice jerseys but they were very lightweight compared to the Giant ones I have right now. A little thicker and less constrictive would have been good.

Check
Motorcycle Etc (Cunupia) - Cannondale and a couple other brands
Mike's Bikes - Specialized and Giant
Geronimos - Trek
Bike Inn (Chag branch has plenty ) - Fuji and a couple other brands
Xterra (Sfdo) - Felt and Rocky Mountain

Having chewed thru cheap bikes that were a PITA to fix as a kid, I'd suggest dropping a couple K on a good bike that the yute can ride reliably until he needs a bigger one. Obvs you don't need hydro brakes and fancy shifting, so call MCE first and see what options they can link ya

Big boy tires,derailuers etcetc on a smaller frame.(Ive switched some stuff quietly onto my Trek...shhhh)

I used to make all these rides on an MTB, had good gearing for road as well as a granny gear for hills.
27.5/650b

Current bike is 700c, the only difference is that I shaved nearly 45 to 60 mins on my 100k. Bike is lighter and has taller gears. Plus I'm a bit lighter and stronger now so that factors in.

I use a Giant Gravel bike... 700c
Also a Fuji 1.1 Mtb 29"....mtb handles elevation/terrain better.... Gravel bike faster & more fun.
