Here at CycleBoost we’re getting all excited about the Tour coming to town. We want to commemorate this by giving our loan-bike participants some groovy t-shirts and cycling shirts if they start cycling too.

And that’s where we need you: How about designing a collection of four shirts for us? If we like your design we will present you with one of our CycleBoost bikes, a pack of cycling accessories, a place on one of our bike maintenance classes and a complete set of the t-shirts you designed for your portfolio.

This competition is only open to Hallam University students so read the brief and get designing

The Brief:

To design a range of three printed T-shirts (in cotton) and one cycling jersey (techinical fabric, short-sleeve, full zip) to present to our CycleBoost participants throughout Sheffield and Barnsley as a reward for logging mileage during Tour de France year under the theme of  ‘ Tour t’Work’

The shirts will be presented to participants who log certain mileages online within their monthly loan period and are as follows:

  • Green T-Shirt: ‘South Yorkshire Sprinter’  - Awarded to participants who log 30 total miles and above in their 4-week loan
  • Polka dot T-shirt: ‘King of the Pennines’ - Awarded to participants who log 85 total miles and above in their 4-week loan
  • Yellow T-shirt: ‘Maillot Jawbone’ - Awarded to participants who log 23 days of use or 126 total miles and above in their 4-week loan.
  • A special ‘Tour t’Work Champion’ cycling jersey will be awarded to each male and female participant from each loan phase who logs the most total mileage.

T-shirt Design elements:

  1. The three T-shirts should look like a range and the predominant colour of each T-Shirt should be green / red spots on a white background / yellow depending on the T-shirt, but other minor colours can be incorporated.
  2. Three provided logos must be included on each shirt: InMotion and Cycle Yorkshire logos are to be added to each sleeve while the CycleBoost logo should be on the front of theshirt.
  3. The main wording should be on the reverse of the shirt

Other than the three above elements the design is open

Cycling Shirt elements:

The Cycling shirt will be short sleeved with a full-zip and the same three above design elements apply. In addition, the main colour should be yellow with a secondary orange colour plus black and white. No other colours should be used in the design apart from where included in a provided logo.

Download the three logos to be used and a cycling jersey design template supplied by Force GB, our suppliers of the finished garments.
