As you may have read in the December Spokesperson the modern incarnation of the Ottawa Bicycle Club (OBC) is turning 50 next year. To commemorate our 50th year of operations the OBC has commissioned a special 50th anniversary kit for production in 2021. This retro kit look was based on classic cycling team designs worn by cycling legends such as Fausto Coppi (for Team Bianchi) and Eddy Merckx (for Team Molteni). (We are also offering a classic merino wool long-sleeve cycling jersey which has a separate ordering process.)
To access the Team Store, you will need the OBC members only password provided when registered as an OBC member. If you do not know this password, please contact Linda in the Club Office

This 50th Anniversary kit is being offered to OBC members in adult men and women's sizes only. This special line now features the all-new Competitizone product which replaces our Podio jersey and Team bibshort. In addition to the Competitizone (Club) cuts, we are offering these items in the more race/form fitting Aero Race (jersey and bibshort) styles as well. Please use the sizing chart to determine your correct size Size Chart | Castelli (castelli-cycling.com)
These product designs are being made for in a limited-edition run and will not be available for long. The OBC will place an initial order in January and, depending on demand, possibly an additional order later in the winter/spring. Order yours early or you will not receive your kits in time for the start of the 2021 cycling season!. Please note that the Club will not be keeping inventories of these commemorative kit items in stock and they will not be offered for sale after mid-year. Due to the uncertainty of manufacturing times in Latin America, these Castelli products will be manufactured for us in Italy and will thus take 8 weeks for production and delivery to Canada.
Regular OBC kits will be available to order early in the new year. For additional information on the OBC’s custom cycling kit program please contact the Custom Kit co-ordinator
