Enoughism, betterness, hyperlocalism and unretirement – these are all buzzword trends that you can expect to hear about with the start of this new decade. Our favorite trend by far is that wellness and happiness are predicted to be the new luxury. We see cycling as the vehicle that gets us both and look forward to […]
We’ve put cycling tights to the test in some pretty extreme conditions from wet road surfaces to frigid temperatures. And while the option always exists for layering a shell tight over bike shorts, our testers favor the integrated, dedicated cycling tights with chamois. The main reason is less bulk and therefore a reduction in the potential for chafing at waist, back of knee and through the crotch where multiple fabric layers can be extra problematic.
Years of development and sourcing have resulted in what we think is a pretty comprehensive array of options – and the best cycling tights for female cyclists. If you’re a serious rider trying to eke out every rideable day possible, you’ll get your money’s worth out of any one of these.
The brighter the better…pocket free multi-utility…kits that zoom. The new season is IN and flying out the door already. We’ve electrified the palette to give you every advantage when riding through Fall. More Soleil options (check out the new pocketless Free), more thermal tops and tights, new performance partners like Showers Pass and lots of […]
The party’s over for another year but if you didn’t get your fill and you haven’t entered the world of cycling-related podcasts, get yourself downloaded. Both of the following podcasts upped their game dramatically this year and the episodes are insightful, funny, educational and a great way to extend your cycle IQ. Download them […]
While the wearer of the Maillot Jaune has every reason to be happy, psychologists tell us that the color yellow itself represents happiness, optimism, warmth, enlightenment and creativity. In addition to being the most luminous color in the spectrum, it’s also the color most often associated with religious (and cycling) deity. Color therapists are […]
Congratulations to friend, Jan McCready (of Santana Adventures) on her summit of Mont Ventoux, July 16, 2019, after a year of solid training. Beyond categorie, beyond beautiful. Chapeaux! About Mont Ventoux (a/k/a the Beast of Provence): Elevation is 6,273′ which isn’t particularly high but you’re totally exposed when riding. Wind speeds of 200 mph […]
Way back when, Terry made its first appearance at RAGBRAI with Georgena and a van full of bikes. Fast forward 30+ years and…WE’RE FINALLY BACK! Come see us at the RAGBRAI Expo on Saturday, July 20th, in Council Bluffs, Iowa. We will be there with a shiny new tent full of goodies, Terry apparel […]
One of the coolest things about my job the last 20+ years has been the ability to meet cyclists of all kinds. Far and away, my best cycling celebrity encounter was with 5 time Tour de France victor, Eddy Merckx and his son, Axel, at a trade show years ago. A class act and a […]
Hemp is one of the oldest utilitarian crops in the world. Its fibers were used to make ropes and sails for Columbus, paper for Gutenberg’s Bible and clothing for humans long before we even had calendars. After the 1950s, hemp sort of slipped into obscurity, but interest has grown steadily in recent years because there […]

Compliments of the National Park System. Every spring, groups of savvy cyclists descend upon Yellowstone, Glacier and Grand Teton. For a few short weeks, select roads in these select parks are open to cyclists only as the Park Service prepares to re-open to the onslaught of RVs and vacationers. Roads are plowed out, no […]
Arriving daily at Terry, our new Summer Cycling Collection may be our best yet. From our limited-edition Tour de France themed prints to our high performance new Rebel Cycling Skort, to the latest in cycling accessories, we’ve brightened, lightened and loosened things up this season. Enjoy this preview. […]
As a pioneer in the women’s skort movement, and surely an original when it comes to cycling-specific, rarely have we offered “options” in this category. But as the market evolves and our love for skorts grows, we just couldn’t resist these beauties…
The New Season Highlights from Terry. Join us in the 2019 Season of Journeys, a concept that set the tone for the adventurous prints, global patterns, cycling references and natural influences that you’ll see in the Terry line this year. We hope you’re inspired to ride even more than inspired to buy, but just in […]
On September 6th, the Friends of Blackwater surprised Georgena Terry with a wonderful honor: a “self help bike station” at the Refuge Visitor Center, complete with honorary plaque. The event occurred on the eve of this year’s Wild Goose Chase, a women-only benefit ride that Georgena conceived of 10 years ago. Maryland’s Eastern Shore has […]
Color of the season: psycho red. News of the season: higher rises, new options in tights and coolweather jerseys and a whole new crop of cycling-inspired tops and accessories.
Terry takes me to the top of the French Alps. Some people watch le Tour, and others actually ride it. Karen Marshall is definitely in the rider camp and this year, not only rode the Col du Galibier (for one) but did so fully decked out in our Painted Ladies of the Tour kit. She’s […]

For all you party people out there, don’t let this month go by without showing your true bike colors… Actual fabric bunting from Just Sew Yorkshire. I just bought a string and have turned my great room into a really great place to watch le Tour. TDF Flag Banner on Amazon. As seen on […]
How do you not lose one second of valuable sunlight during cycling’s best month of July, while still feeding an addiction to the Tour de France? Here’s an elegant solution that doesn’t require a DVR: cycling podcasts. Part talk radio, part locker room, part audio book. And while they do not necessarily feed all the […]
