10 Awesome Cycling T-Shirts (for When You're Not on the Bike)
1. Moloja - Pedals$64.95 1 of 11
Remember when clipless pedals didn't exist and all road bikes had pedals with toe straps? Me neither, but it's hard not to feel nostalgic about this tee from Maloja In the era of carbon fiber everything, all that shiny metal just hanging there so artistically is enough to make anyone want to hop in the saddle. But as for that price tag... Yikes.
2. Handlbar Moustache - Hello$26 2 of 11
Will someone please tell me who thought of this gem? Let's be real people—this T-shirt from Handlebar Moustache isn't just an instant cycling classic—it might be one of the best shirts we've ever seen. Lionel Richie wearing a bike helmet? Just stop it.
3. Twin Six - HighwayMen$24 3 of 11
Does this shirt's awesomeness require explanation? That guy is the kind of stud on a bike who comes once in a generation. Twin Six is just nailing bike shirts these days.
4. UnicornTees - Bike, Eat, Sleep, Repeat$14.99 4 of 11
This Etsy shop has a bunch of cool cycling T-shirts. We liked this one because it sets the day's priorities straight. Now, if I could just manage to slip family in there....
5. Jens Voigt - Shut Up Legs$29 5 of 11
Jens Voigt is one of our favorite pro cyclists of all time. Heroic on the bike and a walking quote machine off it. You just never know what's going to come out of his mouth. Don't believe me? Here's where this shirt's inspiration came from:
Reporter: Jens, you've been in the breakaway (in the Tour de France) six days in a row. How do you do it? What do you do if your body is tired?
Jens: I just tell my body. I say, SHUT UP LEGS! And do what I tell you to do!
6. Rouleur - Campagnolo 1988$57 6 of 11
Why would we want a picture of a T-shirt with a derailleur on it, you ask? Because Campagnolo's componentry is pure art—and because everything from Rouleur is worth keeping forever.
7. Twin Six - Wheel Sucker$24 7 of 11
The wheel sucker is a most-hated villain. Who would've known it would make for such a hilarious shirt. Another must-own from Twin Six.
8. Manual for Speed - TDF All Stars$36 8 of 11
In a collaboration with Specialized, Manual for Speed created this collection of graphic tees to highlight the all-Stars of the Tour de France. This one of Cavendish is pretty awesome, but if you're looking for a different cycling star, you may also choose Alberto Contador, Tony Martin, or Peter Sagan, among others. If you're wondering why the heck Chris Froome isn't on the list—well, unfortunately, the winner of the maillot jaune (yellow jersey) isn't sponsored by Specialized.
9. Hizoku Cycles - Pedal Power$20 9 of 11
If you're looking for a cycling tee that screams rock and roll, this one from Hizoku Cycles is probably about as good as it gets. I mean, isn't there something about it that makes you want to go outside and do sprints up and down the street?
10. Freebird Velo - Zissou Adventure Cycling$24 10 of 11
What's cooler than cycling? Well, maybe nothing, but Wes Anderson films and Bill Murray are a close second and third. This tee from Freebird Velo combines all three to play it safe.
