Tranquillo is an Italian phrase meaning calm, peaceful, tranquil. In cycling terms it’s the relaxing moments that the peloton enjoy before the real racing starts. The time when the riders can look up and appreciate the beauty in their surroundings. The moments when they can chat and share a joke with each other. These fleeting moments are scarce and therefore highly valued. Cycling is a hard sport for hard sportspeople. It requires total sacrifice and frequent suffering. No wonder cyclists enjoy their brief moments of Tranquillo.
Tranquillo Cycling is a new start-up venture aiming to provide apparel and accessories to the non-pro peloton. We want to be relevant to all cyclists – the commuter, the weekend cafe cruiser, the criterium racer, the fixie king of cool, and everyone else in between.
Cheers, Steve (Tranquillo Cycling)
