Pedal-with-Pete cycling jerseys – Pricing and Ordering

These high quality jerseys are offered via advance order on the Pedal-with-Pete Columbus Registration site at the introductory price of just $50 ($65 after the Columbus event).

Ascend jersey photoVERY IMPORTANT!!  These jerseys are tailored in a “T-shirt style” fit, meaning that they will fit the largest variety of builds of our riders – in other words do not expect a skin-tight athletic cut fit.  See photo here for an example of the fit.

You will very likely want to buy a smaller size than normal!  Before going any further, please read the Jersey Sizing instructions below.

You can order as part of your Pedal-with-Pete Columbus Registration by selecting the appropriate quantity, gender and size information.  If you have already registered, or if you do not plan to register for the event yet but would like a jersey, you still have the option to buy jerseys on the Pedal-with-Pete Columbus Registration site without the need to also sign up as a participant.

Pedal-with-Pete Jersey Sizing Instructions 

Our jersey is a very relaxed fit non-tailored cut resembling more of a T-shirt fit.  The sides are straight up and down for a loose mid section.  Sizing runs LARGER than you are probably accustomed to, so PLEASE read on!! 


Half chest measurePreferred Method: If you own cycling jerseys already, grab your favorite fitting jersey from the closet and lay it flat on a smooth surface as shown in the photo.  If you do not have any cycling jerseys, grab a T-shirt that has a fairly snug but comfortable fit. The garment should be nice and flat but not stretched. Measure the garment from armpit to armpit (see photo) to get a ‘1/2 chest’ measurement in inches.

Multiply this measurement by 2 to get a total chest measurement and find that number in the appropriate sizing chart below. If the measurement spans two possible sizes, choose the SMALLER of the two sizes. PLEASE TRUST US ON THESE guidelines; picking your usual jersey size from other major brands (Voler, Primal, etc.) from our sizing chart below will give you a jersey that will be TOO LARGE!!

Alternate (quicker) Method: If you own cycling jerseys already from a major supplier (Voler, Primal, Pearl Izumi, Peak One, Hincapie) find a jersey you like that is not a skin-tight fit and choose one size smaller.  If all your jerseys are skin tight, we recommend the Actual Chest Measurement method below.

Measuring chestActual Chest Measurement Method: Using a soft measuring tape have someone help you measure the total circumference of the widest part of your chest. Wrap the measuring tape under your arms and across your chest at its widest part, keeping the measuring tape parallel to the floor as shown. Stand straight but relaxed with your arms by your side and breathe normally.  Add 2-3 inches to your measurement, then consult the appropriate sizing chart below. If the measurement spans two possible sizes, choose the SMALLER of the two sizes.
