Why road cycling?

Just how popular road cycling is within the Calder Stewart staff and client network is evident in the amount of Calder Stewart cycling kits regularly spotted all around the region, “The kits have been a surprise from a marketing perspective, we have client’s ringing and asking for them!”, says Donald.
