Le Col supports Ripcor
Ripcor was formed in Windsor in 2006 by Treve Ripley and Sean Cornell (The Rip and Cor), initially just for a charity cycle ride to Paris for the PACE Centre, a school in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire which supports children with motors disorders such as Cerebral Palsy. Little did they imagine that in a just over ten years the club would grow to over 100 members from all over the South of England and raise well in excess of £50,000 for PACE. So, when Le Col contacted the club after our big 2013 fundraiser - a full length film called Ripcor, Riding with MAMILS - it sparked a brilliant relationship between Ripcor and Le Col.
Ripcor is obsessed about only one thing: having fun on a bike while supporting our favourite charity. It's an ethos that fits well with Le Col who are obsessed with developing the highest quality, most desirable, performance cycling clothing for cyclists while understanding that local clubs are the heart and soul of the sport.
So, it was a natural evolution that soon Le Col became not only a supplier to Ripcor but the club's kit of choice. Le Col also very generously jumped on board to help us support PACE by providing prizes for our fundraising events and club Time Trials. They also produced our tenth anniversary jersey which was proudly worn at Silverstone team time trial event and on our London to Paris cycle in the spring. We’re now all very much enjoying wearing the Le Col Thermal Cycling jersey, which is keeping us warm and dry over the winter period.
We’re very proud of the relationship we have with Le Col.
