Goodbye - The End of the Road (Holland)

In 2011, we embarked on a mission to help people look better on their bikes. Without a lick of apparel experience between the two of us, we created the kind of clothes that we and our friends would want to wear. The kind of clothes that would seamlessly transition between life on and off the bike.

Since that time, we’ve sold thousands of jerseys to thousands of customers representing more than 30 countries around the globe. We have loved seeing every picture you have sent in from the four corners of the Earth. And many of you have become our friends – even if only via email or Facebook or seeing each other once a year at a bike show.

We have also met a lot of great people in the cycling industry. We produced everything domestically and did our part to help re-ignite US apparel manufacturing.

It hasn’t been easy. Then again, nothing worth doing is ever easy. But, now it's time for us to move on. Without a significant capital infusion, we cannot continue to make the kind of gear that our customers want and need.

We have no regrets. We are thrilled each time we see someone wearing Road Holland knowing that we have made a difference in the cycling world. And because our clothes are incredibly durable, we suspect we’ll be seeing many of you wearing Road Holland well into the future.

We still have a bunch of jerseys and shorts for sale and have discounted them accordingly. Now is a good time to stock up on your favorite items because there will be no more. Things are moving fast so get them while you can.

Big thanks go out to our friends and families for all of your support. And most of all, thanks to our fans and customers. It’s been the ride of our lives.

Jonathan and Richard

Just received my Hilversum jersey, which is my second Road Holland jersey. Not sure how a company that makes such a quality product is going out of business. Your jerseys are among my favorites of all time, and I’ve been riding for 29 years. Good luck in whatever comes next

With a last name like Holland, who would not love Road Holland. We travel on car trips with our Road Holland t-shirts, my son and husband wear their jerseys when biking and this year…we are using our Road Holland t-shirts to do our Christmas cards. You will not be forgotten. You will have to start a new adventure and take us along for the ride.

Fondly, Cathy Holland

Jonathan & Richard,
Many thanks for making what we consider the finest cycling clothing on the market. Your insightful designs are functional, dependable, and extremely well made, not to mention great looking. We live at 9000’ in the Colorado Rockies, and we depend on your cycling gear to keep us warm when the weather turns nasty, and to keep us cool when the weather is benevolent. Road Holland is our go-to gear, whether on our road bikes or MTBs. We thank you for your fantastic gear, and will miss you. Best wishes on your next adventures! We look forward to your next endeavor. Please keep us on your mailing list. Kurt & Amy

Gentlemen,

Looking forward to wearing my original Den Haag jersey and the couple I have just now ordered far into the future. Your quality and service was much appreciated. Good luck in whatever the future holds for you. (Hmm, come to think of it, maybe one more long sleeved jersey for the kit bag wouldn’t hurt!)

Sorry to hear this guys.
It’s definitely a tough game. I took a shot at it in ’08 and lasted 3 years.
Thanks for doing it.
Upside: Now you get to go out and enjoy riding your bikes again.
