How a Guy Can Look Good on a Bicycle in Toronto

A short while ago I posted about how we dress when biking in Toronto.

I think we’re a pretty good looking bunch here in Toronto. Of course, when I tell people I’m a cyclist I can instantly see their eyes fog over as they picture me in full spandex.
As we’ve seen from my post, you don’t need to wear spandex to enjoy biking in Toronto. However, if you’re looking for more inspiration, here’s some clothing brands that could help you overcome “spandex anxiety” and bike in comfort and style:
Bikes Without Borders: While not a clothing brand per se, Mountain Equipment Co-op carries some of their t-shirts and hoodies and they certainly have nothing to do with lycra:

Rapha: Got some money? OK, now got some more? Rapha makes great looking clothing with a price tag to match

Outlier: Made in NYC and can cost as much as a Porter flight to their home town. Looks great though.

Of course, the best way to look good cycling in Toronto is to simply be yourself, put on your helmet and take to the streets in whatever you’ve got on.
