As cyclists, we should be proud of what we do, and cycling-themed T-shirts are a fun way to tell the world, “Hey, I ride bikes”.
In Australia, there’s a wealth of local designers producing cycling-inspired casual clothing. The shirts from these designers are based on the local cycling culture, and are specifically inspired by the communities around where the designers live.
The holiday season is fast approaching, and if you need gift ideas for the cyclist who has everything, or you’re looking to drop hints to your family, some of these T-shirts would make great stocking fillers.
Each Cycology print begins as a hand drawn sketch
Somewhere in Sydney’s Northern Beaches you will find Sarina from Cycology sketching away in her waterfront studio. The established artist is the driving (or drawing) force behind Cycology.
All shirt designs begin as pencil drawings in her sketchbook before ending up on shirts, bags, hoodies and caps.
