Jersey Girls: How to Bike In Style

NextTribe stylish cycling jerseys

If you cycle for exercise, fun or especially competition, then you’ll relate to Becky Redett, owner and founder of The Sassy Cyclist, and her decision to rethink and remake the classic jersey for women.

She and her biking friends, who casually call themselves the SassySisters, love to ride together in the mornings to catch the sunrise while catching up with each other — having a blast and burning a few calories at the same time. But those jerseys! Collectively they thought the cycling jerseys they received at competitions fit like “sausage casings,” binding in all the wrong places, with a tactile sensation not unlike wrapping wallpaper around one’s torso. Plus, the tops were mad-crazy with garish logos and in bad colors, to boot. So Becky mapped out a course to designing a better jersey.

The result? A podium-worthy winner. Comfy, colorful, sophisticated jerseys ($95 and up) in wickable polyester/spandex with a super-soft brushed inside that make intense workouts no sweat. The gorgeous florals and fun geometrics ensure you feel chic before, during and after pedaling. Becky (right) proudly manufactures domestically, too, right in her hometown of Baltimore, where the SassySisters ride.

Safety- and convenience-oriented details include retro-reflective illuminating trim that highlights you in headlights, and two large, deep back pockets to hold a water bottle and a rolled-up jacket as you warm up during your ride. Women beautifying biking and its business opportunities? We say, ride on!

And you thought onesies were just for babies!

That all-in-one fashion garment is baaaaack — and in a big way. It may seem like a redux of that 80s catsuit (remember, worn with heels and maybe a boxy man’s style jacket with sleeves pushed up?). Its return is a hot trend for workout rats, especially those hitting the yoga mat.
