Hello and welcome to RYD CC!
We like cycling. A lot! So much so, we started RYD CC to bring together our love for cycling with our love for unique design.
RYD CC is a cycling inspired clothing + lifestyle company who offer unique designs for the cycling mad community and for those who want to look good off the bike.
Our exclusively designed organic ring spun cotton t-shirts aren’t available anywhere else.
Meet The RYD CC Team
Founder of RYD CC
Simon is a cycling nut that has ridden and raced for a number of years. He has been involved in the cycling industry for quite some time, from selling high end brands to launching some of the world’s biggest names in cycling in to the UAE where he also raced as an elite. Simon has had the privilege of meeting some of the world’s greatest names in cycling from around the world during his travels and involvement with Bianchi.
Now back in the UK and with his own up and coming cycling brand, RYD CC, he still enjoys some racing on the boards at the Manchester Velodrome and can be seen around the Cheshire lanes or Peak District… although much prefers descending than climbing!
RYD CC offers a great range of off the bike clothing. All of our products are made from 100% organic or recycled materials that not only care for the environment but also your skin. We will be adding more lines to our collection in 2020 and also including our own artisan coffee beans and products, as well as a small collection of our own high quality sports supplements so stay tuned to see what is to come.
“We have now turned our attention to our very own products and more importantly, our amazing T-shirts. Each T-shirt is designed in house here at RYD CC HQ and produced on 100% organic ring-spun combed cotton. This not only results in a garment that feels incredible when worn, time after time, but also one that is kind to the environment as they are ethically sourced and certified vegan. We’ll be adding more lines soon so keep a look out. We hope you like them”.
Keep those pedals turning!
