Urban undies designed to captivate and inspire ALL women cyclists
Bike nicks is a British company established in 2015 after a long frustrating search for a stylish cycle undies. Founder Lili Millar decided to solve the problem herself and started a company making cycle undies.
I love style, design, cycling. Everything we surround ourselves with should shout out “…this is me!”
I have had many career paths opened up to me in my life but decided to opt for teaching yoga and working with people who have suffered injury. I have been successful at this mainly because I have had similar episodes myself.
I took up cycling to strengthen after a back injury, and became addicted, eventually using cycling as my preferred mode of travel. When I took up cycling I quickly discovered why so few women seemed to embrace it. Apart from the fear factor of riding crazy London streets it was terribly uncomfortable. I searched everywhere for a solution to my problem and I just didn’t want to wear ugly cycle shorts!
I love clever design and there is something dull about lycra clothing covered in advertising. I wasn't happy about any of it! I wanted to wear my own choice of clothes to reflect who I am so that cycling was part of my story, not someone else’s !
Bike nicks evolved into the sort of garment that FITS IN with other brands in my life. My favourite trousers, dresses, jeans, and training gear. They cross over into all sorts of areas. All my clothes became cycle wear. They accompany me in all aspects and adventures in my life. They have become the favourite pair that makes me happy when I see them freshly washed in my underwear drawer.
I came up with the initial idea then found an independent fashion/lingerie pattern maker. I sourced the fabrics in Leicester and Hertfordshire. The garments are made in Carmarthen, Brecon Beacons, Wales. I am very happy that Made in Britain is part of my story.
Bike nicks cycle undies are born out of an understanding of cycling and innovation. The range includes 2 cycle styles: a knicker and a thong and 3 sizes made from stylish moisture wicking fabrics with padding that protects against chaffing.
