Get Shirty with Peloton Racer


Ed and I spent a week recently working on the Giro d’Italia, and after doing quite a few trips like this we have our routine down to a tee; we always travel light, just carry-on baggage, it makes getting through airport security checks and moving around in a hire car for a week or two far easier. Fortunately, just before leaving, we got our hands on some of the new T-shirts by Peloton Racer, which we were happy to put to the test on our travels.

Since we’ve got cameras, laptops, BlackBerrys, all the related paraphenalia to go with them such as cables and chargers, and we know we’ll collect a lot of extra stuff when we’re on the race, such as roadbooks, race manuals and so on, there’s not much room left for anything else in our wee trolley bags -as we often find when it’s time to fly home and our bags are weighed!

It’s cool though, we only take two or three items of each type, and once there we quickly fall into our system of wear one / wash one / dry one. Our undies, socks and t-shirts take a beating, literally, as we delouse them in the bath each night with travel wash.

It’s a harsh regimen for clothes, particularly since it rained most days we were there, and walking up roads like the Bivio Poggio Salvi, part of the famous Strada Bianchi, which was more like a mud bath that afternoon after two days of rain, certainly tested our washing skills and the robustness of the clothes too.
