Tartans with a more muted palette are often known as ‘weathered’. And of course, it is the cycling tartan; let’s face it, anyone who has ridden a bike in rough conditions, especially in Scotland, can relate to being a ‘weathered cyclist’. The matching of the two words was a good fit from the start. As a result, ‘Weathered Cyclist™’ is the only tartan that represents cycling.
Weathered Cyclist’s colours were chosen to display a more refined, subdued and classic taste; chosen to reflect the natural world in which we ride – moss, trees, and autumnal bracken; with the overchecks representing blood, sweat and gears.
The tartan has been designed and registered with the official Scottish Government body, Scottish Register of Tartans, by founding director Ali Campbell.
