As the 40th RAGBRAI makes a rare stop in Cedar Rapids, 2012 apparel is bound to be a keepsake. The same is true for Team CoeBRAI, members of which are always among the more fashionable participants in Iowa's great bike ride. Kohawk crimson is the dominant color of this year's jersey by Coe graphic designer Christina Kroemer.
Team CoeBRAI will be modeling them on the Register’s Annual Great Bike Ride Across Iowa (RAGBRAI) July 22-28. With overnight communities listed prominently on the right breast, it won't be hard for folks to tell us where to go.
In addition to long-sleeve, short-sleeve and sleeveless versions of the jersey, we are again offering Coe biking shorts featuring the school’s crimson and gold and Charlie Kohawk logo. Bib shorts are also available. While the jersey design changes each year, the shorts are intended to stand the test of time.
The designs will soon be submitted to Champion Systems and orders are now being taken. Each weeklong rider who was part of our group registration gets one free jersey. Additional jerseys and shorts may be ordered.
A jersey will be awarded as a prize in an upcoming bike ride sponsored by the Alumni Office and Team CoeBRAI. Clear your calendar for May 19 and stay tuned for details on the third occasional CoeBRAT (bike ride across towns).
Anyone else is welcome to buy jerseys -- $60 for short sleeve and sleeveless, $70 for long sleeve. Shorts are $65 or $75 for bibs. Order forms are available on the right column of this page. All orders must be received by May 20 and will be shipped by mid July.
