The Make it British guide to British-made cycle clothing and accessories – updated for 2017
When we started the Make it British blog in 2011 we ran an article about British-made cycle clothing and accessories. Back then such items were difficult to find.
Thankfully there has been a big increase in quality cycle-wear made in the UK and with cycling becoming all the more popular we thought it was time for an update.
Thanks to our friends on Instagram we have also learned about a few more brands to add to the list, enjoy!
