T-Shirt Ideas for Cycling Enthusiasts

Custom cycling t-shirts are perfect for a number of different occasions. Whether you are a cyclist, an event organizer or even a friend or family member of a cyclist, there is a t-shirt that is just perfect for you. It may take time to find this shirt but once you do, you will have a way to show your love for the sport or your support for your favorite cyclist.

Wearing your heart on your sleeve is one way to show the world how much you love cycling. Unless you have a group of friends who also enjoy the sport, finding people to talk to about the sport can be difficult. Friends and family members who don’t understand your love of riding a bike may zone out when you talk about your latest ride. This can be frustrating but you can let a message t-shirt do the talking for you. This way, you aren’t boring your loved ones with non-stop chatter about your sport of choice but they will get the message.

Event organizers might want to consider a number of different t-shirt options when they organize a race. Whether it is a full or a half century race, a multi-day staged race or a short road race, t-shirts can be used for a number of different purposes. T-shirts can be given out during packet pick-up of a cycling race to provide racers with a memento of the occasion. Racers can opt to wear the t-shirt during the race or can save it for a later occasion.

Event organizers may also want to make t-shirts a mandatory part of the race. Requiring racers to wear the t-shirts can help in a number of ways. One way to do this is to create custom shirts for each age group. The t-shirts can have different colors for different age groups. Or they can have the age group emblazoned on the back of the shirt. This makes the competition more exciting. Racers can easily determine whether riders ahead of them are in their age group. Seeing a direct competitor just a few yards ahead can really motivate a cyclist. Also spectators can easily see when the first finisher in each age group is approaching the finish line.

Still another way for event organizers to use custom t-shirts is to create shirts for finishers and for winners. Many racing events give all racers a commemorative t-shirt when they check in for the race but most racers have a greater appreciation for finisher’s t-shirts and winner’s t-shirts. Customizing these t-shirt with text that shows the event details is an excellent idea.

Even if you don’t own a bike but want to show your support for the cyclist in your life, there is custom t-shirt that is perfect for you. These t-shirts are a great idea if you are planning to cheer a friend or family member on at a race. One great idea for this type of shirt is to design a t-shirt with your loved one’s name and a few words of encouragement. Another option is to create a t-shirt with the silhouette of him on his bike.

Cycling Tees are for Everyone

Ok, admit it, you’ve secretly had dreams of being on the Tour de France. You can see yourself, racing through the French countryside, wind at your back, cheering fans lining the track, and you in a yellow jersey.

Look a little closer at this fantasy; look at the cheering fans…they’re all wearing cycling t-shirts! And, what’s more, they all match! Unbelievable. How to explain such an enigma? They must have gotten together and ordered some custom-designed t-shirts -ones that show their love and support for the sport of cycling.

Truly, we can’t all race in the Tour de France, but we can dream, right? And, we can show our passion for the race with some custom tees that will show anyone who cares to look that we love cycling!

Think about it, your cycling group–mostly buddies from work with a few family members thrown in–gets together each Saturday morning, early, to go riding. You may take a tour through downtown, or you may meet at the lake and cruise along country roads. You may start in one town and end in another for breakfast, and then head back the way you came. You may go a different route each time, reveling in the newness of the open road. Why not take the next step and unite your group with cycling tees?

Great for a holiday gift or in preparation for a race or just because, matching cycling tees will really bring your group a sense of unity and team spirit. Wearing the shirts can also bring an added element of safety to your rides. Think about it; how many times have you been honked at by irritated drivers who didn’t see you guys until the last minute? Well, wearing matching t-shirts will help your group stand out and be more visible to passing motorists. As a non-cycler (a.k.a. driver), while I am willing to share the road, I’d like to do so with a bit more warning on your part; therefore, wearing eye-catching tees would be a good idea for you and your cycling buddies.

Another interesting use for cycling t-shirts would be for a family who loves to ride bikes. Perhaps you take your bikes on all your vacations and ride everywhere that you can; having matching t-shirts is fun and a great way to show off your family’s favorite activity. While the teens in your family (if you’re so blessed to have any right now) may not be thrilled with the idea of everyone wearing matching tees, getting them in on the design phase is a great way to rev up their enthusiasm for the project. Since you can get just about anything printed on a t-shirt, customizing a set of 6 or so with matching designs or a funky slogan is sure to interest even the most apathetic teen.

So, no matter what your cycling habits, wearing custom-designed cycling t-shirts is a good idea. You can easily identify other fellow cyclists, you can show your passion for the sport, and you can foster a sense of unity and team spirit among those in your riding club. You can also bring your family members closer together–the family that rides together stays together!
