Howies are generously printing up Organic T-shirts with a design by a long time friend of Steve’s Matt Mills who was raced XC with Steve in the early days.
Matt said “I’ve tried to get the essence of Steve through the things that came up a lot in the words written about him following his untimely death, his speed and floating ability through single track, the integrity and fairness of his writing and his dry sense of humour, we all remember his laugh. Then there’s the fact he inspired so many people to take up cycling and writing, it’s certainly a legacy to be proud of! We’ve all followed his wheel, or tried to at one time or another hence the tyre tracks on the back which I’m delighted to say were supplied by Steve’s partner Jo and were off Steve’s own bikes.” All profits from these shirts will go to the charities Jo and her daughter Holly have nominated.
Further details of price and how to order will be announced here as well as on the Bikefest event website (www.bike-fest.com) soon.
