Oakland-based Cedar Cycling produces minimalist, made-in-the-U.S., wool cycling jerseys. But maximum effort went into its newest offering: a women’s jersey designed by women and produced by a woman-owned factory in the Bay Area (triple-play!) Starting with a “summit” that brought together a dozen local female cyclists to discuss material, comfort and performance needs, the company refined and field-tested the garment, even enlisting Barb Howe, former U.S. National Champion Cyclocross racer. The resulting red top, made with a blend of Merino wool and nylon, offers a tailored fit, full zipper, gripper elastic along the interior of the hem and sensible touches like bar tacking to reinforce the rear pockets at stress points.  With a combination of performance fabric and simple, feminine styling, it’s a versatile addition to a cycling wardrobe whether you’re a road warrior or just out to enjoy the scenery.
