Ten awesome cycling t-shirts from Après Vélo

It's all about the bike - and Après Vélo's off-bike apparel is a great way to show that...

Rule number four of the Velominati’s rules of cycling tells us it’s all about the bike – British hard man Sean Yates even wrote an autobiography entitled exactly that.

And what better way than to show your love of all things two-wheeled than by wearing cycling-inspired clothing even when you’re off the bike.


Australian brand Après Vélo not only offer performance-focused riding kit but a brilliant collection of off-the-bike gear and superb cycling-inspired t-shirts.

So, with Christmas on the horizon, we’ve picked out ten of the best Ts to buy from Après Vélo’s vast collection.

And don’t forget to enter our great competition to win a £100 voucher to spend on the Aussie brand’s clothing.

7th Day Spinner

The ride – it’s what cyclists live for, right? And this black/charcoal spliced Tee sums up the orders of the cycling Gods perfectly.

“Thou shalt worship the noble sport of cycling, and on the 7th day though shalt go spinning,” it commands.

We couldn’t have put it better ourselves…

The Tour de France is undoubtedly the pinnacle of road cycling. It’s the highlight of the road cycling season and a race packed with colour, drama and excitement.

But Après Vélo have gone back to basics with the TDFixation t-shirt, and we like it – available in black and white, the crew-neck Tee features cyclists in the four main Tour de France leaders’ jerseys – yellow, green, polka dot and white.

It’s simple, but effective.

Heritage Wool Polo

Retro is very much in, and Après Vélo’s Heritage Wool Polo will appeal to cycling fans of a certain era with its classic throw-back design.

Inspired by the European National Teams of old, the collared 12-guage knitted wool polo shirt comes in vintage blue with classy maroon and cream stripes.

With three rear pockets too, it’s a real throwback to the old woollen team jerseys.

The True Religion

Après Vélo call on cycling’s followers to join their cog-regation and worship the cycling gods with their “True Religion” t-shirt.

The black or white crew-neck t-shirt also features Après Vélo’s ’10 commandments of spin’ badge (below).

As we said, it’s all about the bike…

Crank It Damn It

Crank It Damn It is one of Après Vélo’s classic designs – it even features on a dress, if you’d like to treat the female cyclist in your life too.

But this t-shirt, available in white or black with contrasting printed graphics and “Crank It Damn It” printed onto the sleeve is a stylish number.

And cyclists forming a chain ring shape on your t-shirt is a far better look than the accidental, greasy ‘fourth cat tat’…

Tour de Caffe Latte

Cycling is not only a great way to stay fit and clock some quality time outdoors, but a top social activity too – with the coffee stop as much a highlight of every ride, as the ride itself.

Après Vélo call it the “Tour de Caffe Latte” and they’ve got a stylish ‘Indigo Marle’-coloured crew neck Tee to go with it.

Cycling and coffee are intrinsically linked, and this is your chance to celebrate the best of both worlds.

Brew Crew

Coffee’s a common theme in Après Vélo’s t-shirt collection – they even have a range of “Team Caffeine” tees, which is where the Brew Crew comes in.

The grey marle crew neck tee is an artsy number, and declares ‘La Café Vaut Bien La Montee’.

In other words, get up early, ride your bike and enjoy the rewards – because ‘the coffee is worth the [early] rise’.

Retro Wool Pullover

OK, so strictly speaking this isn’t a t-shirt, it’s a ‘zip sweater’ but it’s another classic wool design and we like it.

Après Vélo say the design was created ‘in honour of cycling legends’ and with chain-stitched jacquard stripes and three rear buttoned pockets it boasts a great vintage design.

A zip puller completes the retro look.

Le Bike Jacket

In fact, while we’re talking other great bits of apparel, allow us another detour with the Le Bike Jacket.

The cotton poly brushed heavyweight fleece comes in ‘azure’ and boasts an understated design with white stripes on the sleeves and inner collar.

A high neck and full zipper, with side pockets on the jacket, also feature.

The original search engine

Cycling is about adventure. Exploring. Discovering new routes, new scenery and new places. The ‘two-wheeled chariot’ was the original search engine.


Après Vélo pay tribute to that fact with their crew neck t-shirts, which are now available in both blue or the original chocolate marle.

As a nice extra touch, the graphics are ‘discharge printed’ – creating a printed image so soft it can’t be felt on the fabric.
