Drink Tea Ride Bikes – New Company

Drink Tea Ride Bikes is a new company based on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales making bike related clothes and – you guessed it – tea. The men with the plan, Sam Needham and Robin Puplett, dropped into the Bike Magic office last week to show us their designs and to share a brew (which passed the test by the way).

Three varieties of tea, a pure peppermint blend to refresh weary bodies and aching limbs after a great day in the saddle. A chamomile tea to remove the race night nerves and a classic English tea for…all day every day? That’s how it works in our office at least.

The company’s ethos is to continue the founders’ love of riding bikes and drinking tea along with a fun attitude, which they hope to pass on in their products. Currently they are producing a number of men’s and women’s T-shirts and three varieties of tea, all available online and exclusively from DTRB.

Here’s what Drink Tea Ride Bikes have to say about themselves:

Drink Tea Ride Bikes. Limited edition clothing and perfectly blended tea for tea drinking bike enthusiasts.

Purveyors of super limited bike inspired clothing which complements perfectly our exclusive range of tea blends, ideal for cyclists.

Sunday Epic is one of the limited edition designs, the tee is hand printed in Yorkshire and all materials are ethically sourced.

First things first, our T-shirts are all hand printed and produced in limited edition quantities, which enables us to share with you the little moments that inspire us, as we live our lives on bikes. A continual release of Yorkshire-born designs help keep the Drink Tea Ride Bikes collection fresh and always evolving. From T-shirts to tea bags, our carefully selected teas are perfectly blended for  cyclists  and  tea  connoisseurs alike. After years of dedicated research, we have  concluded  that  no  science- based recovery drink quite hits the spot when compared to a good old cuppa after a fun day in the saddle.

The products are perfectly at home as shown here by cofounder Sam.

Founded in Yorkshire in 2012, Drink Tea Ride Bikes grew from a quick sketch book doodle into the movement it is today. Tea drinking bike enthusiasts Sam Needham (founder) and Robin Puplett (co-founder) are the creative  partnership  behind  the brand and the source of all design,  communication,  testing  and  tasting.  Between them the duo have  a wealth  of  experience  in  the  world  of  bikes.  Sam  Needham, the established and well-respected cycling photographer and designer, who loves nothing more than being in the hills. Man of many layers and lifelong bike addict, Robin Puplett’s background includes work as marketing manager for Altura Technical Bikewear, Burton Snowboards & Gravis Footwear.

This one is clearly aimed at the builders out there, Shiftin’ Dirt…

“We love riding bikes, we love the good times and we love a good cuppa. That’s what DTRB is all about, having fun and getting out on two wheels” – Sam Needham 2013.

“It’s crazy how fast we have progressed to this stage and it’s only just the beginning. These are exciting and busy times for us and we’ve got so much more  in  the pipeline” – Robin Puplett 2013.
