Girl Bike Love kit >> $75-$95 (jersey), $155 (bibs)

Girl Bike Love is this writer’s favorite by-women-who-ride, for-women-who-ride resource to find out what’s going on in the world of cyclo-femmes and catch up with the girls.

GBL’s kits are going back on sale for a limited-time Christmas run through December 3 (so now’s the chance to buy), deliverable by the holiday.
