Sunday, 4:17 PM, Pleasanton CA

I had my first sighting of a 50+ jersey in the wild. I'd seen them before, but only in photos, or on people I know. This was the first I saw just fly by.

But there, on Foothill Bl, in Pleasanton, there was an actual cyclist wearing one.

I yelled, but being as the jersey was clearly on a 50+ rider, I don't think he heard me.

Just face it- your fame has gone National now- in fact International. He saw you but didn't want to get caught up with the Paparatzi following you.

So you were the crazy person shouting across the road

You saw me, svelte 50+ Clydesdale that I am.

It's a comfortable stylish jersey. Thanks!
