“Cycling is an important charitable fundraising tool in the fight against cancer,” said Founder and President, Judy Jordan. “When you combine this with the fact that Sonoma County has become an important global destination for cycling enthusiasts, it seemed only natural for us to be involved.”

One of J’s cycling jerseys has been designed to benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, which supports bike races and public cycling tours in California and across the country. The other, a bright pink jersey, benefits the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation, an organization that sponsors numerous national “bike rides for life” to raise funds for breast cancer research.
