Not every ride is a Lycra ride.
For many cyclists, "bike" and "Lycra" may be synonymous, but for us, they're just lyrically reminiscent of each other. After all, we go on bike rides, not Lyc-rides. Club Ride Apparel caters to those of us who don't always ride the Lycra train with the Wheel Clever Top. Its combination of buttery-soft jersey knit with Lycra-esque functionality refuses the restrictive binary of bike clothes/non-bike clothes.
The Wheel Clever's Sheer2Dry fabric is knit jersey, so it feels light on your skin. It's also one of the most breathable shirts that has graced our shoulders, Lycra or otherwise, and it dries almost immediately. It also affords UPF 20 protection, something that we cyclists tend to not think about as much as we should.
The shirt is cut along the lines of Club Ride's Sport Fit, so it's got an eye toward speed in the saddle. The storage pocket at the hip has dibs on your personal effects, and the RideLight reflective elements will help keep you visible in low-light conditions. The thumbholes are one final noteworthy edition. Long-armed ladies will appreciate them, as they help to keep the sleeves down.
The Club Ride Apparel Wheel Clever Top - Long Sleeve - Women's comes in five sizes ranging from X-Small to X-Large in the colors Ivory and Steel.

Great for fall riding
I love this shirt for fall riding. It is the right thickness to be perfect for a nice fall ride! It also has a nice pocket in the front.
