    Too bad they don't have a polar bear on the jerseys. Just because...

    I'm glad that the Smithsonian uses "only the best European fabrics" for its cycling apparel.

    One of my fellow Smithsonian cyclists has worked with Castelli Cycling Apparel to design a custom Smithsonian jersey and bib set, featuring the names of every Smithsonian museum and research center. Orders can be placed through a special page on the Castelli website, which will handle payment and shipping directly. The online still will be open ONLY UNTIL FEBRUARY 12, with an expected delivery in April.

    The website is listed below. If you'd like more information, please message me. You do not have to be a Smithsonian employee to participate--friends, family, former employees, former interns, or anyone else who simply loves the world's largest museum and research organization can purchase this custom jersey or the set.

    Hi - I'm a docent at the NMAH. Have you publicized this internally there?

    Sarah Bee and Judd were talking recently about how comfortable their Smithsonian kit from Eliel is. Fittingly, this showed up in my email today:

    2018 Smithsonian Bicycling Gear Available now!

    After many requests, I’ve once again worked with Eliel Cycling Apparel to create some Smithsonian gear for all of the Sunburst cyclists out there.

    We’ll have a casual fit jersey option (Coronado Jersey), as well as a more fitted option (Malibu) in both men’s and women’s jerseys. There will also be matching bottoms and a few plain colored pieces from the manufacturer at a 20% discount from the retail price.

    The online store will be open until April 27th. All orders will be shipped directly to your door if located in the U.S. (we’ll make an alternative plan for those at STRI).

    Delivery should be 6 to 8 weeks from the time the order closes.

    Please feel free to forward to any friends or family you think would be interested.

    For sure the nicest and most comfortable bib shorts I own. They’re my go to for century rides.

    I found the club fitting on the jersey to still be a bit form fitting so if your someone like me that flip flops between sizes depending on the brand, I’d go with the larger size.

    A follow-up note from Greg Abbott:

    REMINDER – The online store will close tomorrow. We have not ordered enough items to meet the minimum needed to proceed with this custom production – so don’t wait, help put us over the top today.

    As of yesterday, they were short 5-8 items in various categories (both types of jerseys, bib shorts, and women's regular shorts). There have been at least two orders that I know of since then, so hopefully they're closer now.
