Team Dream Socks

Those who have been following for a while will know I have an obsession with Team Dream Bicycling Team. The are a small group of cyclist based out of LA who produce small batches of kit a few times a year. They seem to sell out within hours of the best stuff so you need to be quick. I succeeded this time and snagged some sock, stickers and few other items. Go check them out and get just as obsessed as me.

They are available from all good bike shops with this one coming from Quest Adventure in Worthing.
