15.03.13 is sure to go down as a date to remember in pro-women’s cycling. This was the launch of the 2013 Matrix Fitness Racing Academy Team. It was a launch event like no other – a complete break from the norm. Forget those stifled images of a whole team together for a day of posed photos with cars, bikes and kit. Turning the standard on its head, it was about getting to know the individual women on the team; who they are, what they’re about and what makes them tick. This was about breathing a new lease of life into the launch ‘format’ – a documentary of how it all went… another […]
That’s right folks… the Vulpine Cycling Fete is hitting the road… After two successful events at Balham Bowls Club in London last year, 2013 sees Vulpine heading up North to Manchester! Once again cycling, creativity and apparel will all come together at the fete, this time over an entire weekend… all the more fun to be had! The Vulpine Cycling Fete will be taking over a large section of the Bike and Triathlon Show in Manchester Central on 16th – 17th February from 10am to 5pm. A celebration of the best in British cycling, design and creativity, Vulpine have gotten together with some of the UK’s best and up and coming cycling […]
The overwhelming desire to explode with joy had been SO HARD to suppress, but now it’s official I can shout it from the rooftops… I’m going to be working for Vulpine! I’ve been appointed as Sales and Marketing Manager, and to say that I am excited about this would be a serious understatement. Working alongside founder Nick Hussey will be both an honour and a privilege (here comes the gushy bit); I have a hell of a lot of admiration for him. Nick has a huge passion for cycling and has put everything into creating Vulpine & pursued his dream, which is extremely inspirational. Just 7 months after the launch of the cycling apparel company, it’s […]
With two months to go until the ‘season to be jolly’ is back upon us again, I’ve been rounding up some cycling related Christmas ideas for you all. There are some serious crackers out there, and the first one I give to you… after the brilliant success of the first one, the Vulpine Cycling Fete comes back on Saturday 1st December with some extra-added festive flare! The stylish cycling apparel company are returning to the charming Balham Bowls Club in South London. Running from 3pm – 9pm, it’s sure to feel like a wonderland & Christmas Night Market with its beautiful shabby old wood-clad walls and vintage furniture… and mulled wine. The atmosphere and […]
The Jubilee Bank Holiday Weekend saw many a royal-themed knees-up happing across the capital – but for me and The Boy, there was only one event to attend… the Vulpine Summer Fete! Vulpine Clothing founder Nick Hussey (dapper dude in a suit pictured above) organised the event which was held at Balham Bowls Club. It was a wonderful venue – with its eclectic mix of furnishing, floral arrangements and that old wooden panelled Bar, it was a perfect setting for a sunny summer fete… Around 800 people attended the fete, which not only celebrated the best of British cycling, but brought together many British artisan businesses all under one roof! It was a fantastic […]
The world of cycling fashion has a new face on the block, and it’s certainly one to be excited about. Long anticipated and much spoken about amongst the cycling scene, Vulpine Bike Apparel has launched – and its founder Nick Hussey has brought something rather special to the market. A true labour of love, Hussey states that Vulpine was “borne out of love and frustration”; his love for cycling which goes back to his childhood days and his frustration of cycling clothing being “stuck in a Lycra-warp for 30 years”. Being a leisure rider on my Pashley, I’ve never felt the need to dress in ‘high performance cycling clothing’ to ride, but the ethos […]
