Novelty Cycling Jerseys

Updated on March 13, 2016

Have a little fun with a cool novelty cycling jersey!

If the only solid colored cycling jersey that appeals to you is yellow, help has arrived! This shop has novelty cycling jerseys of every stripe (including striped, like the Alcatraz jersey in the picture!), so you're sure to find one to suit your personality. Chose from your favorite heavy metal band, pirates, cartoon, zombies, super heroes - you name it!

I've pulled in bike shirts from lots of different sources all over the web so you can just do all your shopping here. This page focuses on men's styles or unisex sizing, and with rare exception, short-sleeved styles. There's a whole other page if you're looking for novelty women's jerseys or even some for kids.

It's always cool to me when we're out riding and I see someone wearing one of these jerseys. Granted, I'm in Texas so the most common novelty shirt I see is a Texas one, but I did spot a Switzerland and skeleton on the other day. Folks around here are serious about their cycling, but it's nice to see they are taking a lighter route with their bike clothing.

Beyond the fun and funky designs, these are pretty standard cycling jerseys with wickable fabrics and so forth. Most have the standard three pockets in the back and 3/4 zip in the front. Raglan style, club cut and so forth.

Movies, Cartoons and Pop Culture Cycling Jerseys

Perfect for the fan boys out there

My husband laments the lack of geek cycling jerseys out there. This category is probably about as close as you can get, but the realm of science fiction and super heroes isn't a strictly geek thing anymore.

So show your fan boy spirit off with pride, whether you want to soar like Superman or drive like Speed Racer!

One of the nicest (and newest) out there is the Brainstorm Gear Star Trek designs in the picture. It shows the Enterprise blazing across the front over a black background featuring the comm badge and says "To Boldly Go ..." across the back.

Dr. Seuss Classics Cycling Jerseys

Do these show off your childish side?

One of my favorite things about the Dr. Seuss jerseys is the back. These guys are cool coming and going. They've slowly released more designs over the past few years. I'm holding out hope still for a Lorax one and one based on Oh, The Places You'll Go!, which they do designs for in bedding. They both just seem to lend themselves to cycling as well, right?

Cartoon Cycling Jerseys

More favorites from when we were kids

There really need to be more cartoon cycling jerseys, folks! Anyone my age would love to see Scooby Doo or Hong Kong Phooey or the Fraggles. They are missing an opportunity here for sure. Still, you can't fault them for the amazing Gumby design, there.

Many of these have already moved over to my blog. You can catch all kinds of cartoon cats such as Felix and Garfield over there, as well as the gang from Sesame Street. Oh!!! And we can't forget Hello Kitty, now can we?

Super Hero Cycling Jerseys

Time to save the day!

There is so much room here for Marvel and DC Comics to bring great designs to cycling jerseys. Or heck, even Disney with The Incredibles. An Aquaman jersey would seem silly, but most of the super heroes are awesome ideas. Ooo, The Flash for sure!

More Super Hero Cycling Jerseys

Too many to list over here, so I've got them posted up on my blog.

Bride and Groom Cycling Jerseys

Just the thing to lead a wedding party group ride!

Totally cute as a pair! But what would you make the rest of a cycling wedding party wear? Hmmm. There are a lot of other tux and suit options for the guys. And plenty of gorgeous floral women's jerseys to consider.

These designs are from ScudoPro, which makes everything for men, women and children. So yes, you could get a bride jersey for a guy. Seriously. And the matching shorts. Send me a picture. :-)

Check out these and other bride and groom options I've found. Not to mention tons of tuxedo jerseys.

Crash Test Dummy Cycling Jerseys

Reflects a little of how a cyclist feels on the road

Occasionally, it feels like your role on the road is to be a crash test dummy. Crash as in a car running you over, dummy because the drivers are too impatient to share the road. Even if you never feel that way, these are still among my favorites for cool designs for cycling jerseys

Political Cycling Jerseys

Because the political season never ends

Just going to say up front that I am not a fan of these political jerseys. It's always possible they could make you more of a target than usual. And maybe I'm just annoyed because there aren't any libertarian options.

Still, if the message you want to send is political, these are probably the jerseys for you. (Republican one is no longer available.)

Grateful Dead Designs

Over the years, there have been quite a few different bands to make it onto a cycling jersey. Unfortunately, most groups end up with few and fewer until they've pretty much disappeared. (Iron Maiden, anyone?)

The Grateful Dead keeps going strong, though. In fact, they've added several new designs to the line in the last year. I'm showing the most recent version of the dancing bears here, but you can see more on my blog.

Food and Drink Cycling Jerseys

Designs to make you hungry!

Hmmm. Is it OK to put the chili dogs next to the vegan food? Not sure about the rules on a real buffet, but there is almost enough here to create a great meal. Oh, and plenty of coffee to wash it down with. Cyclists love their coffee, it seems!

      @snookerdad: I don't actually sell them and honestly, I haven't seen anything in a smaller size in ages. Those designs have been discontinued, so it's kind of hard to find any of them in any size now. Best I can suggest is to keep an eye on eBay in case someone decides to part with one.

      I think I will have to watch the cyclist's now and see what they are wearing ;) What a fun collection of cycling jerseys.

      @anonymous: Women's jerseys are on a different page, but I don't think I've ever seen that design in a women specific fit.
