CONNAL Kit provides cycling clothes for men and women who cycle for fitness, fun and adventure. Clothing comfort is important, both for body and mind – stylish, functional, comfortable, easy care clothing to feel and look good, both on and off the bike. Adventuring out on a cycle tour, riding the trails, a ride with the bunch or just down for a coffee, we encourage you to find the joy of just riding and exploring.
... Just Ride ... Go Explore ...
Katharine ("Kit", "Kate") Connal was an adventurer, elite sportswoman, leader, motivator and achiever. Born 1912, science graduate Leeds University, a 1936 Berlin Olympian, a WWII WAAF Squadron Officer, post war Control Commission in Germany, then to a new life in rural Western Australia. In a time when women were not encouraged to lead or achieve or voice their opinion, Kate, stood strong and determined in everything she did. Our She Wolf who led the pack, protected, nurtured, loved and stood strong as herself. We take our inspiration from these stories …. our families’ stories (Jen Connal).
Cycling, Cycle Touring and Bike Adventures are more fun with the support and encouragement of the pack. The pack being all who support in any way along the journey. Kate Connal's sense of adventure was strongly inspired by the writings of Rudyard Kipling.
"Now this is the Law of the Jungle - as old and as true as the sky;
And the Wolf that shall keep it may prosper, ..., ...,
For the strength of the Pack is the Wolf, and the strength of the Wolf is the Pack."
... from Kipling's poem "The Law of the Jungle"
As cyclists and travellers, we feel the wolf spirit when exploring - that deep desire for freedom and to live each moment. The wolf’s commitment to family is inspiring, their communication skills supreme and their movement fluid. Join our Pack.

We met Jen and Greg through Dunsborough’s cycling community. They’re great inspirers and encouragers to all who want to ‘go explore’... Jules O.

I used my new Connal Kit clothes for a ride in Europe. They were incredibly comfortable, they washed and dried overnight and I felt comfortable popping in to a restaurant for lunch. I'll be ordering more. ... Fran C.
