3 ways to bike (or spin) with New York City style


1/5
Cycling clothing 1Over the past few years, New York has been evolving into a much more bike-friendly city, and the fashion world has been taking note.

From Brooklyn to the Garment District, designers are creating apparel for chic female cyclists—from the everyday bike commuter and the triathlete to the occasional Citi Bike rider.

Ready to pedal with poise and style? Check out these three crazy cool new apparel brands made for women who bike (and some have pieces that’ll work for spin class, too). —Lisa Elaine Held

“I fell in love with cycling, but couldn’t find any hot gear to wear,” says Kor founder Allison Cline, who designed her line with an ethos of “for everyone and everywhere.” It includes fashion-forward black-and-white basics like a muscle tee (that Ellie Goulding is a fan of) and drop-crotch shorts, and many of the items are unisex.

“I wanted activewear that I could wear in spin class, on a 100-mile outdoor ride, in a yoga studio, to brunch, running, traveling, napping,” Cline says. “Who has time to change anymore?”

The clothes are all made in Brooklyn and Manhattan and are sold online and at Bicycle Habitat in Soho.

This performance-leaning brand launched in 2012 but just debuted its first women’s collection this year, the centerpiece of which is a simple, chic “highly evolved take on the classic, three-pocket, cycling jersey.”

“The technical nature of our garments make it less commuter-specific, meaning you’d likely change out of the jersey,” explains co-founder Devin O’Brien. “But the jacket is very versatile and can be worn casually because it’s so subtle and clean.”

Everything is produced in Manhattan’s Garment District, and the line is sold at Paragon Sports and NYC Velo’s two locations.

Based in New Hampshire and Brooklyn, Velocio is a sporty brand with lines that cater to riding in different weather conditions.

“Our biggest focus is the fit and performance,” says founder Kristy Scrymgeour, a pro cyclist. “In all of our items, we design with the idea that if a garment fits perfectly, it will perform better and make for a better ride experience.”

In July, they debuted a gorgeous collab with designer Lela Rose that was a huge success, and an upcoming fall collection called Recon has already won awards. Pieces are sold at NYC Velo and Redbeard bikes in New York City.
