Not surprisingly, Cafe du Cycliste apparel hails from one of the world’s greatest cycling meccas – Côte d’Azur.
Cafe du Cycliste describes their apparel as being "modern, imaginative and fun, but not too far removed from the great tradition of French Cycling".
Indeed, the brand has an air of elegance that harkens back to the "Golden Era" of cycling, but with a more contemporary and sophisticated look. Here’s a glimpse at their new Spring/Summer range for 2014.
Our clothing is modern, imaginative and fun, but not too far removed from the great tradition of French Cycling. If you’re spending hours in the saddle, you should look great while you’re doing it – and looking great doesn’t mean compromising on performance. We call our approach “tailored-tech”: our products are technically astute yet designed to remain elegant.
– "Sur le Bitume" is our performance range, designed with precision and flair for the intense physical stresses of road cycling.
– "Sur le Zinc" is our urban collection – relaxed, stylish threads that work as well when you lock your bike up at a café as they do when you’re cruising the city streets.
Cafe du Cycliste clothing was born in a traditional French café – a perfect mid-ride coffee stop – nestled in the hills above the Côte d’Azur on France’s Mediterranean coast. It was founded by two friends who shared a love of cycling and wanted high-quality, technically excellent cycling clothing with a twist of classic French style.
Now, Café du Cycliste is based in Nice, basking in the sun of the Baie des Anges, the Bay of Angels. We make premium cycling clothing for men and women that reflects our joie de vivre and our passion for cycling.
We share the Côte d’Azur with many of the world’s best pro cyclists and hundreds of French cycling clubs. With scenic spins along the Corniche next to the sparkling blue sea and a quick escape into the mountains of the Alpes-Maritimes, it’s the perfect place to ride. Legendary cols like the Madone and Turini are just a stone’s throw from the coast.
The combination of serious cycling and relaxation has helped shape our aesthetic. Until you get the chance to join us on the roads of the Côte d’Azur with Café du Cycliste clothing you can take a bit of French style and Riviera chic wherever you ride.
