Are you familiar with the cycle-chic movement? It’s part of the whole wonderful spectrum that is urban cycling; looking good on your bicycle and having a good-looking bicycle under you. It can mean wearing anything from a T-shirt to a tweed suit. What it isn’t, is Spandex.
Cycle-chic started on the city streets of Europe and has eagerly spread to the cities of Australia and here in the USA. Blogs have been key in driving this stylish movement forward. They feature photo galleries that capture the spirit and the imagination of urban cyclists.
A great place to start the exploration is at the home of cycle chic, Copenhagen. http://www.copenhagencyclechic.com/
Then maybe venture over to London where my fellow Brits are showing fine form on those familiar streets. http://london-cycle-chic.blogspot.com/
Closer to home, in New York City you’ll find some very cool images from this chilly spring we are all enjoying. http://nycyclechic.blogspot.com/
It’s all about simply dressing practical with a touch of style and going about your busy day on your bicycle. What could be better? Why not dust off your old, beautiful bike and show your very own cycle chic.

For starters, we’ve developed six T-shirt designs for you. Those six designs are divided into two categories: “Simply Art,” which is based on our fine art drawings and paintings, and “Unlikely Events,” which includes our line of mock historical events.
Bird Mechanics Last Supper Latte Art
Bi-Cycle Ride Run For Rickets London Triumvirate
Our shirts also include a cool little “odd guy art” logo just below the back collar. And incidentally, the face on our logo changes color with each shirt, because the shirt color shows through, like this:
Our six designs also appear on our recycled canvas bags and our packs of over-sized postcards. You can, of course, see more views of our products on our website.
Join us next time for some insight into how we develop our designs – from conceptual hand drawings to computerized images.
