Delta Hat announce sponsorship of cycling team B38 / Cycles in Motion

We believe sport is important - it teaches you what it takes to win, but also how to lose with grace. In keeping with our values of encouraging people to be as good as they can, we’re please to announce that for the next 2 years Delta Hat will be sponsoring the amateur cycle team B38 / Cycles in Motion. The amateur team was founded in 2016 out of a group of university students and quickly established itself as the leading team in cycling hill climbs. Three years and three national titles later, the team has expanded, retaining its place in elite national road race, time trial and hill climb events, whilst simultaneously having a presence both as competitors and organisers of local events. Team B38 / Cycles in Motion plans to broaden its already diverse team in the coming years (with riders already competing in both U10 and veteran category races) and show that a serious cycling team can compete at a national level, contribute to the running of events and be a friendly and approachable face for the sport. Like us they take what they do seriously, without taking themselves too seriously. We wish the team all the best for the coming season, and are proud to be able to support a group that fits so well with our values and ethos.
