AK Cycle Chic

You are Invited

In: Apparel >

AK Cycle Chic is a boutique – a community dedicated to the respect of all humans – featuring cycling gear and advice for all bodies on every bike for every trail. We invite you to visit the boutique, follow our random riding thoughts, and join us on the trails! Our mission is to get more people on bikes, onto more trails, participating in more events, and to support them every pedal stroke along the way.

It all began in 2020, in the heart of the Covid-19 pandemic, with a desire to both look and feel good while riding our bikes. Why are there so few choices for women? How come there’s no inclusive sizing? Where do you find riding gear that’s actually comfortable enough to ride in?!

We talked. We ranted. We raved. Then somebody said, “hey, someone should open a shop!” One year later, that someone was me.

AK Cycle Chic opened in July 2021, after a year of planning during the pandemic. The original intent was to offer just cycling gear, but in just one year it evolved into a boutique whose apparel extends beyond cycling to include active, outdoor, and athleisure wear for all seasons. I’m proud to feature many women-led and local merchandisers and, in addition to apparel, the shop has many fun gifts, an art gallery, and hosts events such as First Fridays and workshops throughout the year.
