Our Top 5 Bike T-Shirts

We live in San Francisco, so you know what that means, right? We bike everywhere! Yes, it is true, in addition to being happy all the time, riding cable cars, and rattling through earthquakes we’re also a bike-centric city. Since we’re also t-shirt aficionados what better way to give a shout-out than Our Top 5 Bike T-shirts (and yes, we’re biased, aren’t we all?). Drum roll, please:

5.) Mission Taco – We live, and work, in the Mission District in San Francisco, which is home to the best Mexican food, coffee, bikes, and hipsters you’ll find anywhere in the city. So we put them all together in one offensive t-shirt (I mean who eats crispy tacos anyway?). Ride on my friend, but ya might want to put down your iPhone…

4.) Go Sign – Come on, you know you do it! Stop signs are for cars, when I see red I think “Go!”

3.) MPG – You might have seen other variations of the “infinity MPG” theme, but what’s great about this one is the cool graphical mashup of the infinity symbol and the bike wheels. Really slick design by the team over at Super7.

2.) Sasquatch Bicycle Tee – I swear I see this guy every day on the way to work. His fixie is like a size XXXXXL frame, and cars don’t even think about hitting him. He spreads the sea of vehicles like Moses in the desert. When he goes to Whiz Burger he orders 20 cheeseburgers, and when he stops for beer he just puts his mouth to the Pabst tap (um, yeah don’t order Pabst at the Uptown). If you’re biking by him he’ll throw you a hi-five, but hold on tight ’cause it comes like a rocket… he’s Sasquatch!

And the greatest, bike, t-shirt, of, all:

1.) Cali Flag – Yup, California is awesome, our flag is awesome, our state debt is awesome, our Gubinator is, mmm no… The only thing we need to be even more awesome is to turn our state animal into a drunk bear on a bike. Kinda fitting, really.

And as always in our wide world of t-shirts there are a million more out there. Post your favorite bike tees below in our comments. We’re always looking for great ones!!

    Just love the parking meter T-Shirt! Did you read the meter, “Meter remains as a courtesy to cyclists”. I think that was very nice of the city to do that, now you can still lock up your bike when you are out buying blank apparel.

    As a cyclist I find the stop sign with GO on it to be very true. We are always trying to get other cyclist friends to obey the rule that they are just like a car….it usually doesn’t work. Stop REALLY means GO.
