Get your Breakaway jersey and pedal

Written by 

The Haywood Chamber of Commerce has released the 2013 Blue Ridge Breakaway jersey design.

The Aug. 17 ride will feature a custom jersey that combines the adrenaline-pumping nature of the breakaway with the needs of the everyday cyclist. The Hincapie Axis jersey features an edgy design, touting the mileage and cumulative elevation gain of each route in the Breakaway. The Axis is a relaxed, traditionally-styled jersey, featuring a lightweight fabric, a full-length hidden zipper and three pockets. 

“This year’s jersey design represents the Blue Ridge Breakaway’s reputation as a beautiful but very challenging ride,” said Brian Birthright, one of the ride’s committee members.

The cycling event brought 500 or so riders to Haywood County last year.  Early registration is open until Aug. 2 for this year’s ride and costs between $54 and $39, depending on the distance of the route. Jersey quantities are limited. Both can be purchased online.
