Fear of a Bike Planet

Our newest t-shirt design lets em’ know where you’re comin’ from. Fear of a Bike Planet – The Counterattack on Automobile Supremacy. Available in sizes S-XL for $13 @ UrbanVeloStore.com.

Urban Velo Messenger Hoodie by Earth Wind and Rider

Just in time for Buy Nothing Day we’ve brought the Urban Velo embroidered Messenger Hoodie by Earth Wind and Rider to market. This is one of the most practical wool jerseys I’ve personally ever owned, having bought a blank version about a year ago when I first laid eyes on one. Why buy a premium piece of merino wool that you can’t wear off the bike without feeling like an idiot? The original tech fabric, and still the best.

This is no sweater, the wool knit is tight, the body of the jersey thin (but not too thin) and soft. This jersey features a full zipper on the front, and a double one at that. Hidden zippers grace the side reliefs and the three pockets located along each side seam and the back. The 4″ cuffs have thumb loops, and along with the hood the jersey features an extended front collar to keep the cold at bay.

Available in the Urban Velo Store for $145.

The Outcast #23 Available

We’ve got copies of the newest edition of The Outcast in stock. For those who aren’t in the know, The Outcast is a British singlespeed magazine that’s known for being more than just off color, it’s often downright lewd. But sometimes it’s quite poetic. Mostly, it’s just funny (in a cheeky British humor sort of way). Click here to order yours today.

It’s the time of the season for…


Holiday shopping! That’s right, even the least materialistic cyclist can use another t-shirt. Or a cycling cap. We’ve got books and movies to keep riders inspired over the winter, and more than 50 zines to keep the bathroom library stocked. Visit www.urbanvelostore.com.

Green Shirts Are For Pimps and Portland Skyline T’s

It’s been a while since we’ve introduced a completely new shirt, let alone two of them. Hip-hop listeners will get it, the rest will learn; Green Shirts Are For Pimps. As for the blue shirt, it pays homage to one of the most cycling-friendly cities in the United States with its Portland skyline. Each features two-color printing from our local friends at Commonwealth Press on Hanes Heavyweight 50/50 shirts and are available in the Urban Velo store for $13 each.

Updated Urban Velo Black Logo T

New black t, same old price of $9.50. This time around we went with a 50/50 cotton/poly blend shirt with a slightly updated logo design. Check it out in the Urban Velo Store.

Print Copies

Print copies of Urban Velo #8 are finally back from the printer. These are a big upgrade from our previous product with better printing and paper, color covers and a real binding. The very first copies have already hit the mail stream, with the bulk of them getting dropped off at the post office on Thursday morning after a late Wednesday of beer, pizza and envelope stuffing with friends.

Appropriately enough, the day we pick up the first finished copies of #8 is also the end of the line for the paper version of Urban Velo #5. Sold out, but like all of our back issues still available as a free download.

International Subscriptions Now Available

Issue #8 of Urban Velo brings forth a few changes to our print product. Along with the color covers, perfect binding and improved printing all around we’ve finally heard enough requests to make international subscriptions available. Now cyclists worldwide can receive a print copy of Urban Velo in the mail, no longer reserved only for USA residents.

Of course, free downloadable PDF copies of the magazine will still be available as each issue is released. Look for Urban Velo #8 on July 1st.
