We cyclists all like to look great on the bike, but now with the help of some seriously stylish casual t-shirts we can look equally sharp be it sitting on the sofa watching the sport’s biggest races or out on the town

Although the name Bonk might raise some eye-brows, Bonk’s cycling related t-shirts will get you noticed for the right reasons.

Bonk has three cycling themed t-shirts- two with a fixed wheel bike design and one with a time trial bike.

The custom fit feels good, allowing you to get away with moving up a size for a baggier feel or going with your normal size for a smart look. The print quality is good but could be a little sharper.

Lastly, the material feels nice, not too heavy while being thick enough to not snag easily.

Plain Lazy

Plain Lazy markets itself as being refreshing and cheeky. This is reflected in the casual t-shirts we received.

With the Tour de France on as we speak, the t-shirt saying “my other jersey is yellow” is particularly current. It is personal preference, but we prefer more of a gloss print finish than the one used for these t-shirts.

The shape of the t-shirts is more classic than custom, but still has a nice fit. The t-shirts are made out of 100% cotton and they feel like they’ll last.

If you want a quirky cycling related pun on your t-shirt then these are the t-shirts for you.

Whitstable T- Shirt Company

£21.99 (£23.99 for the Superieur t-shirt)

Based in the Kent seaside town, the Whitstable T-Shirt Company has a nice line of cycling decorated t-shirts. The t-shirts are sourced from UK suppliers and printed on site.

The t-shirts have a nice cut, being long but not too wide. The material of the £21.99 t-shirts is light, so ideal for the summer months but you might prefer the sturdier feel of the Superieur t-shirt. Also, the washed out look of the print could divide opinion.

Especially during the month of July, the lightweight feel and unique decals of these t-shirts appeal.
