It’s been a busy couple of months here at Cyclodelic, designing new products and cycling all the way to Paris with them to make sure that they withstand our strict performance standards as well as performing in the style stakes. Our new ‘Paris‘ capsule collection features a re-designed sports dress in this seasons bold prints and block colours, our long awaited leggings and some fab new accessories including this handlebar bag priced £65 below.
The range is available exclusively online through cyclodelic.com as part of our ongoing comitment to bringing you the most beautiful performance clothing available at equally attractive prices. In addition we have responded to your feedback by expanding our size range from a UK 8 to UK 16. Each piece is lovingly hand produced so if we don’t have your size or if you have any other suggestions please e mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org , we’d love to hear from you.
To coincide with our mid-season launch we thought we’d have a mid season sale of our colourful Summer pieces. All of our clothing is designed to perform all year round so act quickly to score yourself a bargain and brighten up your morning commute with up-to 50% off our tailored performance wear.

Last week Cyclodelic spent the day being filmed and interviewed for Berlin based Deutche Welle-TV. The 5 minute segment on City Cycling Fashions was broadcast as part of their style and culture program, Euromaxx on Monday and can be viewed by clicking here.
Thanks to Ben Broomfield for photographing the day and Claira Watson Parr for modeling our current collection. For any of you wondering the t-shirt I am wearing in the film is from the new collection of our new favourite designer Ashley Marc Hovelle.
I was thrilled when these pictures arrived unexpectedly into my inbox late last night from photographer friend Ben Broomfield.
Model, actress and our belle du jour, Claira Watson Parr, looks simply stunning in her Cyclodelic Kimono Windproof Jacket, we are sure you will agree!
As a bit of fun to finish off our Winter sale, we’ve partnered with our friends at Going Going Bike to host an auction of our super sale items. So head over there now and grab your velo valentine (or yourself) a heartfelt bargain on our lovingly crafted clothing and accessories.
Australian journalist and TV presenter Sarah Wilson featured us on her blog yesterday and we were blown away by all the wonderful comments about our cycling cape from Cyclodelic fans in the Southern Hemisphere.
A quick reminder to all our international customers that we do ship our products globally from our online shop.
What would have happened if Harry hadn’t made the train that morning? It was a sliding doors moment and who knows!?…. But, he made it and within seconds, it was the start of I Bike Cambridge Weekend for Team Cyclodelic! We were off on the train from London Liverpool Street to Cambridge and almost a full team; hair stylists, make-up artists, sound engineer and assistants.
The rest of the team, stylist, photographer and of course the director Amy Fleuriot were already there unpacking the tarps, mannequins, goody bags, bunting and bags of gorgeous clothes from the various Esthetica and cyclewear designers. It really was a case of sisters doing it for themselves (don’t even ask about Amy, Andrea, Sophie’s trip up there in the white hire van!) as we got ready for the much anticipated fashion show.
Saturday was exciting and a really big learning curve for all as we battled on in 39 degree heat. By Sunday the temperature had cooled down and we managed to iron out the creases to get the shows running like clock work.
With the stage set, music queued, pedal powered bicycles fully charged, goody bags at every seat and our 15 gorgeous models out of hair, make up and into wardrobe we were ready for a final countdown call on mic. We then successfully rolled out 4 shows throughout the day, all on time.
Starting many months back with Amy working on bike design workshops with three local colleges, today we would showcase all the hard work that had been done. Despite the obstacles over the two days it was such a success!
January is nearly over but the freezing temperatures are still tempting us to stay holed up indoors. However, we here at Cyclodelic refuse to let a little thing like weather keep us off our bikes. Instead we opt for layers of luxury ,cashmere against our skin & silk around our necks to help keep us toasty on the winter roads. Nothing beats the feeling or indeed helps one stay on track with those New year resolutions like a little self indulgence & what better way than with fat free, no guilt cashmere!
The cashmere we have sourced is manufactured by a small ethical operation in Mongolia(Nomadic herders raise the goats, comb them & sell it on to our supplier)rather than inferior manufacturers who mass produce cashmere by un-ecological strip grazing & appalling working conditions.
Our Man in Mongolia treats the cashmere fibers with small amounts of non toxic, hypo-allergenic silver ions during his rinsing process. The silver ions bolster cashmere’s naturally fabulous sweat wicking & odor controlling properties by making the fabric anti bacterial & as a bonus those pesky munching moths don’t seem as interested in chomping holes. For any of you out there who have fought the war on moths salvation is here!
A mix of 70% finest Mongolian cashmere & 30% silk is like slipping heaven over the skin, & our jerseys are cut longer to help keep draughts excluded. Our roll neck will keep you snug up to your chin, whilst the scoop neck was designed low enough not to interfere with most necklines if worn as a base layer. Both feature extra long sleeves with thumbholes.
Perfect on & off the bike. No, really, you won’t want to take it off. We know, we’ve been living in ours since October & haven’t lost any friends yet!
Cyclodelic teamed with Brighton & Hove Council to facilitate the Wheels of Fortune fashion show for the White Night Festival in Brighton on October 23rd. Every year thousands of people gather in Brighton to celebrate the turning back of the clocks. The show gave local retailers specializing in urban, street and sport fashion a chance to promote their products.
The catwalk for the show was built out from the steps of the Unitarian Church on the pedestrianized New Road. The four pillared entrance of the church provided a dramatic backdrop to the bright fashions that were showcased. Bright lighting effects and visuals projected on the facade of the building, combined with a cool mix from the DJ, featuring music from local bands and DJs made the clothes dazzle on the catwalk. The products featured in the show were bright, modern performance inspired pieces from Addict, Cycle Chic, Cyclodelic, Brooks Running, Cyberdog, Vans, The Jog Shop, Tokyo Fixed Gear, Two n Fro and She Active. Bikes were supplied by M’S Cycles, Cyclodelic and Cranks. Exposure Lights helped illuminate the stage and make-up was applied by Shu Uemura, styled by Xanthe Goode.
The crowd began gathering hours before the start, in awe of the fabulous venue. During the show, everyone was transfixed on the bright, beautiful clothing that would make anyone shine on the streets of Brighton. Ultimately, Wheels of Fortune was a huge success and a great deal of fun. The show definitely amplified the energy and contributed to the funky vibe of the festival. It was a great way to celebrate the turning of the clocks!
