Le Coq Sportif team with Italian vintage race, L’Eroica

Drawing inspiration from the always stylish Italians, Le Coq Sportif presents the legendary L’Eroica 2013 collection. More than 5,000 riders will take to the Tuscan Hills this October to compete in the L’Eroica – a ride that rediscovers the white gravel roads and cultural heritage of the strada bianca of Chanti.

At the start line you’ll find riders on vintage bikes (compulsory for them to be produced before 1987) all wearing old-school woollen jerseys with accessories and kit fit for the time before electronic shifting and high-tech team buses. Le Coq Sportif’s latest L’Eroica line may just provide the missing piece to your ultimate retro get-up with knitted jerseys, cycling caps, leather-palm gloves and messenger bags all designed to make you look like you’ve just stepped out of the 70s, ready to race. Here’s our pick of outfit favourites for you:
