The original POPPY shirt

In Flanders Fields 2014 -18

A shirt with a mission: brotherhood of men while visiting Ypres Salient - Northern France - Somme - Verdun and other parts of the Western Front

 

 

 

 

 

 

RISING UP TO THAT HILL

Cyclists hiding wheel in wheel,

heading up against the Wind

fighting that sharply

curved Hill in Flanders

That rises boldly up in

the wide surrounding

open landscape, once baptised

'In Flanders Fields'

Behold these empty Poppy Shirts,

who no longer feel the pumpin' heartbeat

Of a Cyclist but embracing

A Great War soldier climbing out of

a trembling, shivering trench

Rising up from a nameless grave....

Handin' over the torch to cyclists of

Today

 

A bicycle outfit with a message: cycling is the best way to respect a landscape's history:

IN FLANDERS FIELDS 1914 - 18 REMEMBERED

 

Superb quality bicycle shirt available for men or women (adapted female models), created on the occasion of 5th Tour de FRANCE stage with start in Ypres (July 1914) as also being part of the Biking Box Cycletours-philosophy: "Come and visit but do it on a bicycle..."

Brilliant look-alike shirt linking the Best Climber's jersey in the Tour, but now enriched by the 'Poppies', powerful symbol of a peaceful remembrance.

 

A whole line of cycle wear is available: bike-shirt, with or without sleeves (ladies), suitable bike-short (black for men, white for ladies, with one poppy-flower on both sides), Poppy-handgloves, Poppy-cyclesocks and temporary exclusively for the 100 years Armististice the WINTERJACKET, so you can ride in your Poppyshirt-outfit all seasons!

Available on this webshop or to be bought in local Ypres' souvenirshop 't Iepertje Menenstraat 12 at 100 m from the Menin Gate Memorial, where each night at 8.00 pm the Last Post is celebrated...
