You can't imagine how excited/scared I was when I received the e-mail letting me know about this thread.
I'm Corey, I made that jersey. I've tried to respond to all of your e-mails, if I haven't then let me know. I can't thank you all enough for your interest in the Jersey.
Here is the link to the actual Blog entry about the Jersey: effin-sweet (http://15rides.blogspot.com/2008/01/effin-sweet.html)
Here are some details:
I made the jersey to remember those cyclists who have been killed or seriously injured by careless motorists. I've been hit twice and fortunately I'm still able to go out and ride, but there are many... too many who can't. My blog is about cyclists rights, and the 15rides.blogspot thing comes from my 15 Centuries for cyclists rights. I know it's kind of "Preaching to the Choir" but hey... you have to start somewhere. The Jerseys are to help raise awareness. Profits from the Jersey's go to a couple organizations that I've decided to support due to their commitment to the cause. I got these for myself, and I'm very picky about clothing, so these are high quality, full zip jerseys.
Originally I ordered just enough for me and some friends. But the response was such that I decided to do another order. If you want one you can PM me, contact me through the Blog, or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Jersey's are $55 + $5 for Continental shipping. I will do international shipping as well.
Edit: I added some functionality on the blog so you can order from the main page.
good job on the jersey and thanks for the response
I am going to order one as soon as i have cash, as a few of you know my dad was hit head on on his motorcycle by a woman who drove off the interstate through a fence and onto a access road it left him in a coma for three months and paralyzed for six months. he can walk now. but he was an avid bicyclist before that. sadly he had to give it up. I was hit on my motorcycle in a hit and run by someone in a truck who ran a light and left me lying in a ditch with a broken leg three broken ribs and a broken jaw. everyone else knows about my medical issues that almost took my off my bike

Man that all sucks!
I think in a lot of cases it's not just bicycles that face the brunt of 4 wheeled motorists, but all two wheeled vehicles.
Wrote Corey last night about my interest in a jersey and when I got home tonight from work, there was his response! Order placed.
