Proclaim your devotion to the world's greatest way of getting around

[This article was last updated on September 26, 2018]

Want to proclaim your allegiance to the world's greatest activity, sport and mode of transport? Here's a selection of our favourite cycling-themed t-shirts so the world knows you love riding bike even when you're not doing it.

Type 'cycling t-shirts' into Google and you get a vast range of choices: brand logos, political statements, jokes good and bad, homages to races and straightforward cycling-themed art.

Here's a selection of our favourites. Feel free to add your own in the comments.

Art

Crossbear — £25

Morvelo-Crossbear-T-shirt-T-shirts-Light-Blue-AW16-CROSSMT-SM

If it's cross season, what are you doing in a t-shirt? Sinking a couple of well-earned post-race beers (Belgian, of course).

Roadside — £25

roadside-t-hirt.jpg

What could be simpler and more essential than a bike, a rider and the open road?

Kraftwerk: Tour de France — £15.85

redbubble tour de france.jpg

There are a number of Kraftwerk-inspired cycling T-shirts around. We like this take on the iconic Tour de France cover.

DNA — £22

Cycology DNA

Billed as 'the genetic road map of cyclists' by Cycology.

Evolution — £22.64

Just in case any of your friends need reminding that cyclists are the pinnacle of human evolution.

Shut Up Legs —£19.59

Shut Up Legs team

The t-shirt brand of legendary racing character Jens Voigt includes this head badge-style team logo.

Races

Tour de France — £22.95

n+one specializes in cycling t-shirts, including this homage to the great riders, teams and climbs of the Tour de France.

Lanterne Rouge —£14.79

Red Bubble Lanterne Rouge

Here's a tribute to the race's last-placed rider, the famed lanterne rouge. We've all been there.

Col de Galibier T-Shirt — £25

milan-san-remo-organic-blue-t-shirt.jpg

Monuments and climbs abound at velolove.cc and this Galibier number is a fairly typical example. Done in a cheery blue, it doesn’t scream cycling, which makes it all the better in our book.

Giro d'Italia - £9.99

Giro.jpg

A tribute to the Tour of Italy from Whistable T-Shirt Company.

Le Mont Ventoux — £25

Mavic Mt Ventoux

Often a crucial climb in the Tour de France, the windy mountain is celebrated by this t-shirt from long-time Tour neutral support provider Mavic.

Slogans and statements

Fat and money — £14.99

money and fat.jpg

Nuff said.

Too Many Bicycles — £9.93

Too Many bikes.jpg

A bit more straightforward than some of the others, but a fair bit less costly as well. It also leads us neatly on to:

Bike maths — £22

Bike-Maths-Navy-Mens-Tee_2000x2000.jpg

The expanded version of the timeless cyclist's formula. Can you ever have too many? If in doubt, consult the T-shirt.

Stay Awesome — £24.99

Stay_Awesome_-_Male_back_2.jpg

Inspired by Transport for London's ludicrous 'Cyclists Stay Back' stickers, so we include two car window stickers, two A6 stickers and five business card stickers with each t-shirt and for every tee we donate £5 to the Cyclists' Defence Fund. The front has a small road.cc logo.

Brands

Campagnolo Classic — £24.96

Campagnolo T.jpg

Is there any cycling brand with a mightier heritage than Campagnolo?

Rapha — £40

Probably the UK's most controversial cycling brand, so here's one of their t-shirts for you to argue about.

I design and print tshirts for men under the name Sight Hound. I'm really pleased with a new Tshirt just listed at notonthehighstreet, which can be personalised with a location red spot to mark a favourite ride or home town. The UK map graphic is made up of bike bits: wheels, gears, etc. It's an interesting design with a personal touch... that's what my customers say, I hope you'll agree.

Take a look at my brand, Broken Riders - brokenriders.com

We're mainly influenced by mountain biking but love all two-wheeled activiy. And who could argue with the philosophy on our best selling t-shirt?

All our clothing is ethically sourced (meaning no sweatshops or child labour), and is eco-friendly. We only use water-based inks and our cotton tees are 100% organic and made in a factory that only uses wind and solar power.

So have you noticed the glaring mistake in the design? (the black one at least)

Yup - left-handed DNA is not un-known, but rare apparently.

The odd thing is that the grey version of the T has the correct alpha helix.

Someone must have flipped the image.

I bough one of these Ts and had to send it back as although it fitted fine on the chest and shoulders it was really really long in the body. Very odd.

In this case I am more than happy with a little self-promotion by some skilled people. It's tough for unknown designers / companies to get any publicity so IMHO it's very welcome and entirely appropriate for this article.

I'm not really into logos or proudly showing my congnoscenti credentials across my chest (I'd soon be rumbled as an interloper/wannabe) but I've liked some of Howies' t-shirt designs over the years.

Okimono has some wonderful shirts such as this design by Giro stage winner Jos van Emden:

They also have a beautiful "Marginal gains" shirt in pre-order  3

That is a straight steal from Adam Hansen's brand 'Hanseeno' that I've been wearing for a couple of years:

Looking through their shirts and a lot of them are terrible design chic! They have ones of a spatula, a clothes horse and a rawlplug!

 

I like this though marries two loves: vinyl and bikes. Not sure if its a tshirt though

Loving the Tshirt thread,  ’m not a commercial entity but tinker with making bike tee designs for fun.
