4. What can you actually do at home?

Threat you precious cycling kit well and always wash at 30 degrees Celsius. Don’t use a dryer or iron because this will destroy your cycling wear. When giving your kit the love it deserves you will ride together for a long time.

After sorting it will be either burned or put into the ground. This is awful right? At Velor we truly hate this process and that’s why we are working on a solution. We actually want to gather all the worn cycling wear and recycle these into new cycle wear. This would be a great solution but it’s also a tough one. It’s tough because there’s polyesters woven with elastane (this gives the stretch to a fabric) and then there’s also the coloring. If you want to recycle this, you need to separate them. And that’s extremely difficult.
