Fun commuter jerseys

Of all the "targetted advertising" that I get on Facebook, this has been the only one that I actually felt the urge to click on, because the picture was of a jersey that says "Don't run me over" on the back. Turns out they have a bunch of fun jerseys. I love the fact that many of the jerseys say "Thanks!" (written backwards so you can read it in a mirror) on the front.

No affilation with the company, just thought people might dig these.

I have plans for a cycling jersey that says " Objects in my shorts are larger than they appear"

I like them, unfortunately I don't generally wear jerseys. I would like to get some in a pocket tee shirt version.

Funny -- I've just started seeing these on the trail on Sunday mornings. Not so much during commuter times, though :-)

I think a jersey that says "Don't honk at me" would have a reverse effect.

I had the same thought- I think wearing 'don't honk at me' will get me honked at. A lot. I'd totally wear 'don't run me over,' though. I am pretty sure that wouldn't have the same effect (of making more people run me over)

These jerseys are all a FAIL in my book. My primary criteria is visibility, and all of my commuting jerseys are neon, yellow or orange. These jerseys are not particularly visible, and some of them are actually gray, which totally blends into the pavement. On top of that, someone might actually hit you trying to read the lettering.

If I didn't have an aversion to spending $60 on a garment, I'd be buying a couple of these

I ride with a backpack in kind of a forward position so nobody would be able to read them. But I like them anyway.

I would love to have shirts like these in a regular looking performance tee. Like the Duo Dry shirts you can buy that dry quickly.
