University Archives and Special Collections in the Healey Library at UMass Boston is excited to start collecting community submissions of cycling jersey and t-shirt images and information.
This will tell the story of cycling in a unique way and help to develop the sense of a cycling community, going back in time. You have an opportunity for your images to become part of that story.
