MOXIE CYCLING REVEALS 2013 WOMEN’S BIKE JERSEYS

2013 Moxie Jakarta womens tank top cycling jersey

With more than 2,000 unit sales in the last year, Moxie Cycling is expanding their product line!  As promised inmy review of their jerseys, we were able to get a sneak peek at their Spring 2013 collection highlights.

The original T-back style featured five prints. For 2013, it gets four new designs.  In addition, Moxie is also offering two completely new styles, a sweetheart style with three different designs, as well as a very unique ruched style, offered in four designs. The ruched style is shown above in a design called Jakarta.

The two new jersey styles have similar features as the original T-back style, including the ergonomic seams and tagless design, performance fabrics, interior built-in support bra, and 3-pocket design rear…

Christmas Bike Gift Guide 2012 for HER

Buying Christmas gifts is not always easy, especially if you are trying to keep it a surprise and don’t quite know what to buy for a biker in your life. I really hope we can help you with few ideas.

 Under $100

  •  Handlebars: Salsa Cycles makes a great narrow handlebar that fits me perfectly.
  •  Jerseys: Moxie Cycling has some adorable cycling jerseys that are flirty and fun.
  • Bike shorts: Whomever initially invented women’s bike shorts is ingenious, not to mention bibs. After two kids, ah-hem, I need a little bit of extra coverage, and bibs are flattering and don’t pinch at the waist like regular bike shorts do. I’m partial to Pearl Izumi, ShebeestPrimal Wear or Skirt Sports for bombing around town. I love commuting to work in a dress with a pair of cute bike shorts underneath.
  • Vest: Layering is critical in Colorado, so I have my Pearl Izumi vest and a pair of arm warmers on me at all times.
  • Seat: Nowadays, women’s-specific bikes have rockin’ seats from the get-go, although I am also partial to Terry Bicycles saddles. A happy butt makes for a happy ride.
  • Want to be a part of something bigger? Get a woman in your life a gift of Venus De Miles bike ride in Colorado or Illinois.

Moxie Cycling Jerseys – By Women For Women

In all the years I have been cycling, I have never been thrilled with the jerseys. In fact, I got hand me downs when I started cycling and have never actually purchased one. Sad, I know, but I have never found a jersey I like that fits well. They all look the same and they are made for men. Until now! Moxie Cycling recently gifted me their 2013 Peacock Jersey with T-back.

Review: Moxie Women’s Bike Jersey

Are the days of geeky, unisex-looking jerseys numbered?

Moxie Cycling Company wants them to be.  But cycling jerseys need to be functional, as well.  They need to keep you dry and comfortable, allow for range of motion, and provide places to carry essentials.  Are Moxie’s stylish jerseys also workhorses?  We’re about to find out.

According to Twin Cities based Moxie Cycling Company, founders, Brooke Freiborg and Deb Amorde, what began as a local presence in Minneapolis has grown into Moxie Cycling jerseys carried by national companies such as Team Estrogen and Scheels for consecutive years.

Inside Track: Entrepreneurs raise the bar for women riders to cycle in style

 Sometimes starting a new business just takes a good idea and a little “moxie.”

Deb Amorde and Brooke Freiborg, ardent bicyclists, decided a few years ago that the industry needed jerseys designed for women.

“I did a hand-sewn prototype in 2009,” recalled Freiborg, 29. “Women riders have unique needs and other sports have made significant strides in women’s’ apparel.”

This year, Freiborg expects Moxie Cycling to sell about 1,000 of its locally made jerseys in each of 10 styles at $58 apiece through its website, www.moxiecycling.com, and Teamestrogen.com, and at local races and bike shops across 12 states.

Places and faces from RAGBRAI 2011′s first day

On one hand, the first day of my first RAGBRAI as a bicyclist as well as journalist made me feel like a complete outsider.

I rolled up behind one conversation on my way north out of Griswold and couldn’t help but eavesdrop: The guy was talking about how he and his brother aim to ride across every state in the nation, while the woman was from Alaska and said that she was able to bike to within 150 miles of the Arctic Circle.

I was just steeling myself for the rest of the way into Lewis!

And apparently I need a cadence meter for my bike to help keep myself at the peak rpm for my knees and the rest of my legs.
