Enter the Slipstream.
Joining a friend group who goes on destination bike trips together was a bit intimidating for an outsider. So I cheated and bought my way in by supplying them all with matching Terry jerseys. It wasn’t without risk as I couldn’t bring extras for fit exchanges, not everybody has the same taste and the September weather could have gone in any direction but the Soleil LS Jersey proved to be a unifier, literally and figuratively. We certainly made a splash along the Italian Riviera.
The Right Weight/Fit/Print
What everyone loves about the Soleils is the fabric. I literally was able to roll up 16 of them into a very small organizer in my suitcase. They are light, silky and very stretchy so they’re flattering on a wide variety of body types. I think the absolute best is the long sleeve jersey style with extra long zipper as it provides both coverage and ventilation. They were a hit with everyone, and subject to unique styling.
The Soleil is an ideal touring companion, suitable for a variety of uses from the obvious to the unexpected.
A huge thank you to the two Jens, Rola, Dianne, Lucy, Celia, Lisa, Monica, Deb and Tara for welcoming me and making Terry look SO GOOD. And to Christopher, Sean, Phil, Louis, Cory, Greg and Jeff – we’re working on our Solmate collection now so your turn is coming, too!
Until we ride again…

Thanks for your kind note. We used Vermont Bicycle Tours (VBT.com). The trip was one of their seasonal offerings: Italy: Piedmont, Langhe & the Italian Riviera. High marks for this foodie/wine itinerary.
