France cycling accessories

We looked at French flag cycling jerseys some time back, so now it’s time to turn our attention to some France cycling accessories. All the red, white and blue you could want, in gear you can wear or put on your bike. While one of these has the country crest, most use the fleur de…




All hail the Lion of Flanders!

OK, I will again fess up to American ignorance of many things European. I’ve seen the lion so many times on various English banners that I thought the Lion of Flanders was just another version. I know. Stupid. I know Flanders isn’t English. Anyway, there are connections between the lions (and you should check out…

Scoping out Scotland cycling gear

Let’s see here. We’ve done England and Wales and Ireland* and Great Britain** as a whole. So our last stop around the island looks to be Scotland cycling gear. The Saltire is the blue and white X and is the proper flag for individuals to show their loyalty and Scottish nationality. There’s also the Royal…

Brazil cycling

Well, watch me almost miss a perfect opportunity for a tie in! Brazil is playing for third place in the World Cup Saturday after getting obliterated by Germany earlier this week. (Ouch.) So it’s time to take a look at some Brazil cycling stuff, right? Not surprisingly, there are a few items out listed as…

Don the red and white for England cycling

We’ve been working our way through the United Kingdom, and our travels are taking us to England this time. Which isn’t the same thing as the UK or Great Britain, American folks. On this side of the pond, the flag we’re familiar with is the Union Jack, but for England proper, the flag is a…

Viva la France cycling jerseys

We’re singing a song from the movie version of Le Miz Sunday in a Mother’s Day concert. Which puts me in a French sort of mood, which had me hunting down France cycling jerseys. (Yes – that’s about the kind of circle my mind works in.) Obviously, we end up with a lot of red,…

Feeling lucky with some Ireland cycling jerseys

Luck of the Irish and blarney and all that to you. Yes, I realize I’m way late for St. Patrick’s day, but lucky Ireland cycling gear works anytime for those of us who actually have Irish blood. You’ll find tons based on the green, white and orange of the flag, as well as some Celtic…

Hail the past with Soviet Union cycling jerseys

I’m not sure if it’s all the mess in the Ukraine right now or what, but the old USSR has been on my mind recently. And these Soviet Union cycling jerseys definitely bring back the old glory. Lots of red and black and kind of harsh images on most of these, which mostly take inspiration…

Wales cycling jerseys flash the dragon

Grab a red dragon with these very patriotic Wales cycling jerseys. They all use the country’s flag as the basis for the design with the fields of white and green and the red dragon. The dragon is the Red Dragon of Cadwaldr, King of Gwyedd, and that’s it for that history lesson! The green and…

Viva la Mexico cycling gear

Got an urge to head down Mexico way at the moment, mostly because it has gotten so danged cold here. (Being thankful it’s just cold this time and not ice!) And the Mexico cycling jerseys I’ve tracked down are definitely warm with the spicy red and green colors taken from the country’s flag. In fact,…
