Real Men Become Cyclists Pattern

OK So I was asked if I could post the pattern and after playing with some things and I figured a way I could post the pattern. It is just being posted as a PNG file which since it is just an image file can be posted as a picture on the blog and you should be able to download it as such. The size of this was created to be a sheet of paper so it is 8.5x11. I did create this is Inkscape but it seems when thinking about this that most everyone is selling/giving patterns away they are either images or PDF's. Since this is just a blog and I currently have no way to post the pdf so that it could be easily downloaded I opted for the image format.

I like red lines on the borders and light gray on the inside. I find it very hard to cut when it is all very black. I loose the blade in the black and it drives me nuts so I make them colored the way I prefer. Hopefully, you will like it this way also.

If you want to resize it you can use GIMP or any other such tool that will resize images.

Anyway here is the pattern if you like it please leave a comment and let me know.


  1. Thank you sir for the pattern! Your artistic skills in Inkscape are way ahead of mine. Do you have a favorite tutorial site for Inkscape?

  2. For inkscape I used http://www.scrollsawvillage.com Travis who runs that did some videos on how to make patterns using Inkscape and Gimp.
