At Velogear, we're all about bikes. We love riding them, reading about them and fixing them. And when bikes are on TV, we love watching them. We want to make it easy for you to indulge your love of cycling, too. We stock cycling clothing from the best brands in the sport, along with books, DVDs, parts, accessories and more. We want to be your one-stop shop for all things cycling!
When we think "epic," we think Belgium. Why Belgium? Because epicness requires mud, cobbles (optional), possibly blood and crazy people yelling at you while smoking, drinking and eating frites. And, of course, the Lion of Flanders.
Long the symbol of the Flemish region of Belgium, the Lion of Flanders is a regular fixture at bike races — specifically in the spring and fall: the classics and cyclocross.
The Lion symbolizes the hardmen of bike racing. The struggle to reach the top. The realization that the first one to the finish line suffered mightily in his journey. And yes, epicness. See what we mean?
