The iconic wallpaper-like pattern of the jersey features the busts of Northern Californian animals, the boar and the quail, along with the Tortoise and the Hare, all framed in wreaths of poison oak. Cosentino tapped his longtime friend, Jeremy Fish, for the project, who gave each animal the signature glasses and facial hair of the chef. The complimenting cycling cap peeks out from beneath the helmet, revealing the tortoise shell print. The cap perfectly completes the look while reiterating Cosentino's advice, to slow down and enjoy the journey. The result is eye- catching while remaining subdued, a must in the Bay Area.
Whether your ride begins at the pastry shop or the trail head, these pieces will tackle any conditions you throw at them, again reminding us that cycling is personal, and as long as you enjoy the ride, you already won.
