    50+ Jersey [virgin] ride

    Ok, wicked punsters - this is just the first ride wearing my jersey. I was very pleased that it actually fit when I put it on this morning. This was the first morning in the mid 60s F range where I could go short sleeve.
    It was very comfortable but could use triple pockets instead of a single. I rode my old-school CF/Al lugged bike with TT bars. I got in behind an much younger man on his titanium rocket.
    I'd rate it a 8 out of 10 ride.

    Cheers

    Edit - it does have triple pockets - cccorlew works fast!

    Our 50+ jersey? It has 3 pockets. Or do you speak of another jersey?
    Photos?

    I am soooo embarrassed. Reaching around to stow my keys I only found the middle pocket. Maybe the jersey was a bit tighter than I thought and the others were flattened out

    I'm sitting here feeling so sorry for Robtown, as he still qualifies for the virgin group rides.

    Perhaps he should have spent less time on his bicycles when he was in his 20s.

    The jersey is MAGIC! I averaged 19.2mph on the 8.13 mile back to the LBS - and that's with a 2 mile gradual hill at the end. I got behind a couple young turks that were flying for about 5 miles. My Garmin shows substantial level periods at 25mph. Wow!

    That's what virginity is good for. Once you loose that, your mph will drop some.

    Edit:
    At some point the phrase "use it or lose it" kicks in, so get busy!
