In 1817, a dapper young man wearing a top hat and tails was seen riding along a highway in southern Germany on a two-wheeled wooden vehicle. His name was Karl von Drais, a brilliant young industrial designer, and the machine was the velocipede or pedal-less bicycle, which he had just invented.
Ever since, cycling has attracted its share of free thinkers and nonconformists – the unconventionally stylish looking to express their cycling DNA through what they wear and how they live.
And so, with a doff of a cap to von Drais, Après Vélo was born, a premium cycling emporium from Sydney, Australia, carrying on that proud tradition of two-wheeled fashion, fun and flair.
Après Vélo offers cycling inspired fashion and lifestyle products that are distinctly stylish, but with a twist - a love of the slightly absurd.
