My point is, you can imagine my delight when I saw River Island were releasing a range called RI Cycle. Not only is that a killer pun, it’s a capsule collection of clothes for boys on bicycles and comes complete with photos of guys posing on and around bikes. The eight-piece edit offers jackets and tees with strategically placed pockets, plus one pair of dark wash jeans. Colours are mostly monochrome (with a touch of teal) and patterns are minimal, meaning it’s a far cry from all the neon and lycra-based monstrosities you find at Cycle Surgery. Check out all the pieces below, plus a couple of gratuitous model shots for my enjoyment.
