CLOTHING... POLES APART
Those of you who’ll be joining us at this year’s Spin Cycling Festival (12-14 May, Olympia, London) will come across the rather colourful and stylish world of Warsaw Cycling. The brainchild of former bike messenger Sven and designer Charlotte, Warsaw’s range of cycling gear leans heavily on the aesthetic. “Our designs embrace an alternative approach to cycling culture and sports, inspired by bike-messenger life, track-bike criteriums, runway fashion and underground culture,” Sven says. And there’s certainly something of the frivolous designer about the garments with the vivid navy long-sleeve jersey and short-sleeved orange top ensuring you’ll stand out amongst the madding crowd. Warsaw Cycling’s range is heavily aimed at roadies or fixed-gear racers, though caps and t-shirts lend a nod to the leisure cyclist.
