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!

Summer Read: Pamela Druckerman’s Latest Is a Nora-Ephron-Like Take on Midlife

There Are No Grown-Ups, a recent collection of essays by the wry and wise best-selling author Pamela Druckerman, is just the thing for those of us who are missing Nora Ephron’s stellar voice. This book offers up Druckerman’s take on life in her 40’s—with musings on how waiters suddenly know to call her Madame instead of Mademoiselle (she lives in France), and what it’s like to honor her husband’s unusual gift request for a big birthday (it involves a certain act, in bed, and not just with the two of them).
