Get the Eddy by rich_mitch


The Eddy T-shirt, designed by Richard Mitchelson, available from

I bumped into Richard Mitchelson (aka rich_mitch) on Twitter following one of my sportive write-ups. We both rode the Puncheur, and compared notes on the freezing conditions on the day. Anyway, a pleasant but unremarkable cyber-encounter.

Then this morning, as I was flicking through a copy of Rouleur, wearing my cleats and a cycling cap whilst sipping a Rapha-blend macchiato and half-watching the Giro (of which experiences, more later), I recognised Richard’s name in print. RM is an animator/illustrator, who has not only designed a bunch of Tour-legend t-shirts, currently available via the shop, but also a comic strip of the famous Lemond-Fignon showdown in the 1989 Tour de France, for the latest issue of Rouleur.

Wonder what he’d charge for a one-off ‘Al’ t-shirt?
