Our Fashion Heritage

Cycling and style have always gone hand in hand.

In the 1820s, it was the dashing young aristocrats of London and Paris who first embraced the dangerous new pastime of bike-riding – back when bikes had no pedals, brakes or steering. Because these free thinkers were always sharply dressed in the latest styles, the bike became known as the “dandy horse”.

Today, Après Vélo carries on that proud tradition of two-wheeled fashion, fun and flair.
Aprés Vèlo was created by Leonard Greis, cycling tragic and purveyor of fine clothing, having spent over 3 decades in the fashion industry.

Whilst many open an online store with just a few clicks, Après Vélo is different. Here you’ll find beautiful, cycling-inspired apparel created and serviced without compromise. Clothing that’s ultra-comfortable and never out of style. Premium fabrics, unique printing techniques and vintage washes. Artwork and design that’s steeped in cycling’s proud tradition of courage, grit, and determination, but with a hint of the absurd. We call it a ‘twist’.
