- Decent cycling clothing for ladies
- Mary HingeSubscriber
Wife’s birthday coming up. She’s starting to ride more and wants some better kit.
She wants sleeveless jersey with pockets, in a nice, feminine ish but not pink design.
Plus shorts, but not bibs.
Any where I should be looking.
Would be good if there were some stock somewhere to try on as fit is important. We are in mid Wales but don’t mid a day out in Cardiff, Bristol, Worcester, North Wales if there is anywhere with good stock.
And….is there a girlie specific chamois cream?

A good range of women’s cycling stuff? I don’t think such a shop exists in the UK!
I now buy online, in a couple of sizes, in the hope that one of them actually fits.
Bike24 has an excellent selection (188 sleeveless tops). It’s a German online retailer (bought last year by Wiggle), and I’ve always had very good service from them.
It’s also worth keeping an eye on the Sport Pursuit sales, as they sometimes have nice women’s clothing. Free returns if you use PayPal, I believe.Posted 7 months agopyranhaSubscriber
Terry Bicycles do some nice things, but I don’t know that much is available in the UK. I did buy a Sun Goddess top (Union Jack design – only available from US) a few years ago for my wife, as a present shortly after she started riding – I was prepared for the duty etc
Then, there’s velovixen.com and I know there’s another women’s gear shop, but I just can’t bring it to mind.Posted 7 months agoYakSubscriber
I have some Torm jerseys. Great kit, if a bit warm right now like all sportwool stuff.
Mrs Yak mostly has sleaved jerseys – some club stuff and some Altura, dbh, trek. All seem ok. Not sure about sleeveless though. Wouldn`t be allowed if your wife enters a race though.
Baggies – Endura ladies stuff is good.
Female chamois cream? No idea. A nice minty tingle is the same for both sexes I would have thought?Posted 7 months ago
