New cyclewear brand Veleco are giving away a bunch of T-shirts to readers, and all you have to do to be in with a shout of getting one is to comment below this story.

We ran a story last month on the launch of Veleco’s first range. The Brighton-based brand offer a range of organic T-shirts and hoodies, and we have their Re:Cycle Softshell jacket and Organic Cotton Cycling Cap out on test at the moment.

What’s on offer? First up, we have the Crank and Spanners organic T-shirt, a bikey take on the skull and crossbones, in blue, size large. Like all the other designs in the range, the T-shirt is made from 100% organic cotton and it’s printed with eco-friendly inks.

Veleco are big on the ethical side of things too. The T-shirts are Fair Trade and made using a WRAP (Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production) certified factory. They pay workers double the minimum local wage and a 15% Fair Trade Premium on every garment made goes to support health and welfare projects for workers and their families in Pakistan.

Next, this is the Spokes Man design. We have it in a white, size XL.

Third, here’s the Fork Off T-shirt which we have in size medium.

Then there’s the Cycological T-shirt in a size large.

And finally, here’s the Hello Velo T-shirt that we have in a ladies’ medium.

So, we have five different T-shirts up for grabs. Stick your name in the hat by giving the size you're after in the comments box below, and tell us whether you'd like a men's or a ladies’ shirt (make sure it's a combination that we have listed above). We’ll pick one person at random from those who have indicated each size/sex combination that we have. Get your name down before midnight on Monday (17 December 2012).

Veleco will give out one of their Organic Cotton Retro Cycle Caps, priced at £15 each, to three more people drawn at random.

All of the shirts retail at £20. If you don’t win, get yourself over to the Veleco website and buy one anyway. Veleco are currently offering free UK delivery and you need to order before 3pm on 20 December for UK Christmas delivery.
