Dude Girl

Dude Girl Announces Their Spring 2011 Cycling Collection

September 23rd, 2010

Dude Girl , makers of spirited technical apparel for athletic women, announce their Spring 2011 Cycling Collection. Dude Girl ’s Cycling Collection, including the Poppy, GiddyUp and Hot Rod kits, offer a spunky western vibe blended with modern designs and performance fabrics. All styles are made in the USA. The entire Dude Girl collection will be unveiled at the Interbike Trade Show, September 22-24, 2010 in Las Vegas and is available at retail February 2011.


Inspired by fields of bright red French poppies, and their work with cyclist and designer Poppy Gall, Dude Girl ’s Poppy kit is a feminine yet lively look for the female cyclist. The kit includes the Poppy Short Sleeve Jersey, Poppy Sleeveless Jersey, Poppy Tank and Poppy Cycling Short.

The Poppy Jersey, $109, and Poppy Sleeveless Jersey, $99, feature soft, lightweight, moisture-wicking fabrics with strategically placed mesh venting, zippered easy-to-reach rear pocket, and elastic-free cuffs and hemline for extra comfort and flattering fit. The body-hugging Poppy Tank, $79, features a built-in bra top and rear zip pocket. This is the top for those sunny days when you want to catch rays, stay cool and be supported.

The Poppy Cycling Shorts, $109, with 10″ inseam, offer a flattering 8-panel construction featuring a slightly higher waist with gentle front dip and wide fabric waistband for extra comfort. An elastic-free wide cuff leg adds comfort and a touch of color ties in with our Poppy jerseys and tank. Dude Girl ’s chamois use a female-friendly 4-way stretch pad made with a micro fine Trevira Bioactive polyester filament yarn with antimicrobial properties (silver ions incorporated into the yarn). These shorts offer excellent moisture transport and optimal breathability for your next long ride.


The GiddyUp Jersey was originally designed as a trip souvenir when Dude Girl ’s founder Kim McElhinney led groups through the Tour de France circuit six years ago. When the stylish jersey was met with voracious demand, she took it as a sign. Today, the GiddyUp Jersey, $88, remains a signature piece and showcases a spunky graphic that appeals to the female cyclist looking to GiddyUp and get going.

Sleekly designed to match our jersey, the GiddyUp Shorts, $88, honor our western theme with an abstract boot stitch side panel. GiddyUp shorts are made with a high quality Italian-milled fabric in an 8-panel construction, and an 8.5″ inseam with leg gripper elastic. A women’s specific chamois and elastic-free waist ensure comfort.


To super-charge your ride, we’ve created the Hot Rod Cycling Kit to wear for those high-energy days.

The Hot Rod Cycling Jersey, $89, features lusciously soft Italian milled fabric that feels like cotton yet wicks moisture. A full-length zipper keeps the cycling engine from overheating. The jersey comes in two vibrant colors, Seaglass/Orange and Eggshell/Coral with a fiery design.

Pair the jersey with the Hot Rod Cycling Short, $89. This racer cut short has a 9.75 mid-rise front and high-rise back for a gap-free jersey/short connection. The short has a self-waistband and a non-binding elastic-free fit through the mid-section. The Hot Rod Short is made with an 8-panel construction, 8.5″ leg inseam, and custom “GiddyUp Dude Girl ” leg gripper elastic. All of Dude Girl ’s chamois are made with a 4-way stretch pad with an antimicrobial treatment.

Dude Girl started in 2002, when its owner, Kim McElhinney, left a corporate career to lead bike tours in Europe. After her souvenir jerseys and tee shirts became popular, she became inspired to launch an apparel line geared toward active women. McElhinney named the company after a book written about her cowgirl grandmother. Today, Dude Girl designs, manufactures and sells active apparel with a spunky western spirit made with the latest technical fabrics and functional designs. All products are manufactured in the USA. The products are available nationwide at over 200 specialty and outdoor retailers including REI, Title Nine, Terry Bicycles, Lance Armstrong’s Mellow Johnny’s in Austin, TX, and Hudson Trail Outfitters.

First Day of Football = popcorn, soda, and best of all, no cycling

Now, You are probably confused by the title. It basically says, that I don't like to cycle. You are wrong, I love to cycle, but not on football day. I will now list everything that happened to me today, in a boring post, that you should not read. READ IT. Sorry, an emotional out-burst, on with the listing.

  • I woke up. It seems like a pretty logical thing to do on most days, except for Saturdays. (I honestly slept over 24 hours once)
  • I ate breakfast. I am a huge breakfast eater, so it's normal for me to eat breakfast. A LOT. And some how, I'm still short.
  • I went to Church. I am a Christian, so like every Sunday, I went to Church. BTW (by the way, for those who don't know that means. I just figured it out yesterday) I changed before I went to Church.
  • I ate Lunch. I ate a delicious lunch of beef and corn off the cob. I like to cut my corn off the cob, before I eat it.
  • I played Ping-pong. For those of you who don't know, I played ping-pong, semi-professionally. I won a tournament, and got payed for winning it. Today, I was playing against my dad in a friendly ( or not so friendly) match.
  • I, of course, watched some FOOTBALL. Here are some pics to prove it. Technically, I'm proving anything, since these are just some pics of my favorite players.
First, the football. You can't play unless you have a football.

Donald Driver, my favorite receiver.

Brett Favre is back, but a tough early schedule could complicate the Vikings' plans.

Brett Favre, my favorite QB.

Adrian Peterson, my favorite Running Back.

I hope you enjoyed my Pics. Because if you didn't I would be really upset. Just joking. I had an emotional out-burst again.... that happens a lot. BYE. You better comment or else I'm gonna kill you. Bye, I love you.

My Awsome, or not so Awesome Aero-dynamic Position

As you can tell by my aero dynamic position, it needs some work. This may be why I'm not very fast. Enjoy, unless you like me, if you like me feel bad for me.

So, I have been working on my dynamic position really hard. When I say hard, I mean 2 minutes a week. When I say 2 minutes a week, I mean 1 minute. With all of that said, I work on my "beast" position, for 1 minute a week. I'm good, aren't I.

I need a new bike. REALLY BAD. So, I have saved up some, not all, of my money, to buy a Gary Fisher Superfly.
as you can see here.

I also need to get a new pair of shoes. I wear a wimpy size 9, but my shoes are a size 8. You can view my new shoes. Which one do you think is mine.

The Shimano M086 Mountain biking shoes

SIDI Ergo 2 carbon: SIDI Men's Cycling
Pearl Izumi X-Alp Drift Cycling shoes .
Diadora Team Racer Cycling Shoes

You are probably wondering which one is my pair. I will tell you. This is my shoe.

An Open letter to The Bike AD people

Things I don't get
  • The sign. What in the world does this sign mean.
  • "Even the Ads are an endurance event." I think they mean,"Even our ad is an endurance event. It's impossible to stay a wake reading our sign."
  • The bike being held in to the sign. Why is the bike hooked in to the sign? It would be so easy to mug that guy, even with the camera crew standing right there. Plus, it looks a little (or a lot) nerdy.
  • No one in Spitting Distance. As you can see, the other corner of the street, has over 100 people packed very tight together. And in this block, probably due to the camera crew, there is no one in sight. Why wouldn't there be people? After all, they're trying to make it look realistic.
  • The water bottle. Yes, I have to say, this Ad is so bad, that even the water bottle has its issues. First, the water, or Gatorade, hasn't been used. You cant tell me someone riding his bike for 8 days, hasn't had any drink. Plus, the drink, is on the ground. It's not excess-able, without having to stop pedaling.
Things I understand
  • The biker. I will have to say, Bike Ad People, that your cyclist, might actually be a cyclist. I don't see any jersey tan lines, but it's such a small picture. I also think his legs are a little to skinny to be a bicycler. But Hey! I'm a little to small.
  • The bike. Bike Ad People, thank you for at least making this man (who may or may not be a bicycler) ride a real bike. Unlike most things in this Ad, I must say, the bike is genuine.
  • The Helmet and the glove. I think the helmet might be in disguise as a glove. And possibly vice-versa. With that, I am not sure it's a real glove, or helmet. Normally, I wouldn't think anything about it, but with this ad, I have to look at everything, as if it were in disguise.
PS: My exercise machines are on the way. They should be here by Monday, but you never know with manufacturers. I should post within the next 5 days . Please Comment.
