- Wingspan Cyclery introduces its first Kit Supply -

     Our own Wingspan Cyclery in Moorpark is introducing its own Kit with a jersey and shorts. By the end of February supplies will be in the shop for you to check out and even purchase. Great news is that the manufacturer is the local Voler from Grover City. Seems that most of us has had a jersey made by them, so the sizes and fit should be the same. Maybe dropping by Wingspan and reserving your size would work. What better way to celebrate biking than to have a jersey with Moorpark on it, right?
