2013 apparel now available

Racing stripes and checkered flags inspired a fast-looking 2013 Coe bike jersey by graphic designer Christina Kroemer.

With Kohawk crimson and gold highlights on a white background, cyclists will be able to keep cool under the intense Iowa heat that typically marks RAGBRAI. Team CoeBRAI, always among the more fashionable participants in Iowa's great bike ride, will be modeling them again this year from Council Bluffs on Saturday, July 20 to Fort Madison on Saturday, July 27.

In addition to long-sleeve, short-sleeve and sleeveless versions of the jersey, we are again offering Coe biking shorts featuring the school’s 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. 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 plan to join us for the fourth occasional CoeBRAT (bike ride across town).

Anyone is welcome to buy jerseys -- $60 for short sleeve and sleeveless, $75 for long sleeve. Shorts are $70 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.
