Hearts for Our Hospital Jersey Sales Re-Opened!

JerseyDue to an overwhelmingly positive response to this year’s Hearts for Our Hospital Bicycle Challenge jersey, we are re-opening the sales of the jersey on line!  You are now again able to purchase the jersey as part of your registration or, if you have already registered, click REGISTER ME and order just the jersey.  These jerseys WILL NOT be available in time for the ride – that deadline passed weeks ago.  They will be shipped to you in mid-December.  The cost is $65 and the modest increase includes the cost of shipping.  Jerseys will be on sale through November 16 – after that you will have to try to buy one off the back of a fellow club member!!
