In a little over a month, my wife and I head to Italy for a couple of weeks. This is not a dedicated bike vacation (we have some sightseeing planned and a wedding to attend) but there will be biking. One day will be dedicated to riding the Madonna del Ghisallo - a very popular shrine to all things biking.
When I ride, I always ride with non-descript jerseys, I've never worn a team or club jersey as I don't race and personally don't feel the need to. However I want something for that Ghissalo ride, something that identifies me as American but not the flag in the face type. Being American doesn't mean the jersey is a USA jersey, but something that IDs me as being from the states. So far I can only come up with a couple of ideas:
1. I belong to Potomac Pedalers, a Washington DC area group. I actually don't participate in many of their activites, but I like to support them. Their jersey: http://www.bikepptc.org/pptc-bin/sho...key=0003JERSEY
2. 30 + years ago I went to the University of Wisconsin - Madison and lived there awhile. I feel in love with biking, my wife and my lifestyle there, I visit there every year. Their jersey: http://www.teamcyclist.com/store/Col...P3426C1817.cfm
Any input or other suggestions would be welcome. In the meantime I need to ride more so I can make it up that mountain!
