Brillibrilliant / Unicorn Racing Dream


I’m not immersed in professional-esque racing culture, and probably a lot of you aren’t either, but I can appreciate these road teams that bring a more grounded approach to road racing culture and maybe making themselves more accessible to everyday riders like ourselves who equally enjoy a good spin around town. The Unicorn Racing team has coupled with the Hotel AM Brillantengrund to support their racing endeavors and offer something to riders of all stripes in the process.

The Vienna hotel sponsor offers affordable rates for locals and traveling cyclists, supplying pasta nights, group rides, room space for bikes, and insider information for area rides.

Urban Legend Cyclewear


If you want to ride on a bike backwards…helmet-less…drinking alcohol…while also looking stylish, apparently Budapest, Hungary is the place to do it. Poor riding advice aside, the new Adventurers collection by Urban Legend is designed for the urban cyclist who is just as fashion conscious as they are in need of all-weather materials. The summer collection consists of pack away jackets and cape-dresses that also double as pillows when crumpled up.

Check out the full collection here.
