Ladies Cycling JerseysEager to design some female specific stock jerseys, we have grown our women's cycle clothing range; including long sleeve options, new bibshort chamois and sculpted side panels for optimal comfort. Constructed from a fairly lightweight material, our jerseys are perfect for all types of riding - be it weather determined, road cycling - or enduro/ mountain biking. With our customisable options such as full length YKK zip and short sleeves you're able to choose what's practical or simply just whatever suits. More women are participating in cycling ; both leisurely and professionally, but 'more' isn't enough. We want everyone behind the front wheel of a bike. After a quick browse on the web, it seems the main reasons of those who do not cycle, are: being stuck in congestion, lack of cycle lanes and general safety concerns. And unfortunately these are all elements that need to be over come by the individual themselves. BUT! We want to break the mould - get that 'middle aged man in Lycra' image out of your head (sorry for putting it in there in the first place). We need to show women that they can introduce cycling into daily life; they can still cycle to work and look presentable for that 10am department presentation. There's plenty of ways around getting yourself together on the move. Big brand cycle manufacturers currently produce cycle gear for homogeneous groups; they don't put in the extra mile in order to produce for the variety of people within each cycle category - though their interests are the same, their genetics aren't! It seems their 'women's wear' is just a spin off, of existing male designs, and is just made female friendly by changing the colour of each design - as the saying goes they 'shrink it and pink it'. Well... Not us! We are going to embrace and focus on the individuality of women; their female form, lifestyle choices and personal preferences. Our ladies cycling kit will be completely unique and not available on the high-street! So we can almost guarantee you'll be part of a niche group wearing the perfect female form jersey - for your body type.
Rachael, our new comer is in charge of creating loads of the awesome designs you'll see on our website from now on. I was able to grab her for 5 and get the low-down on what her thoughts and plans for our ladies cycle jersey range are.
I recently read an article which supposedly featured cycling jerseys for women which had miles of style. You can imagine how disappointed I was when the featured jerseys were the most unimaginative and dull I have ever seen. Who seriously wants a plain dirt brown jersey? Not me or any of the other ladies in The Cycle Jersey HQ that’s for sure.
It got me thinking about how difficult it is to find a jersey with a load of style for a fraction of the price. Well that’s where TCJ comes in. We have designed a brand spanking new range of jerseys for women and children. All of which come in fantastic colours and patterns to ensure you are seen not only on those summer rides but harsh winter ones too.
I knew for one of the designs I wanted to use out of focus brightly colour lights as a base pattern which made this print perfect. With a black jersey as a base this would be a great partner for any black shorts.The classic Saltire jersey is a popular one. Armed with this information I knew that one of the new designs had to be inspired by it. Hence, this new modern twist was born. Keeping the dreaded brown jersey in mind, I decided to design the complete opposite. Hence, this pastel coloured floral design was created. With bright pink flashes that complement the floral print on the front and back pocket of this jersey, it would be perfect for ladies who love the pretty in pink look.
