Sorry to ask, but I missed this one...

I just saw a picture of a guy with the "50 Plus" jersey. I PM'd him to see where it came from, and it was here. The contact he gave me didn't come up on the PM member list. Can anyone point me to this?

Also, growing up in the midwest, the triangular "slow moving vehicle" sign was so imprinted, many vehicle drivers have a near Pavlovian reaction to it, slowing almost immediately. I've seen a jersey with that triangle on it (years and years ago) in yellow, but I believe they're orange now. Has anyone seen a jersey like this lately? That second or so of reaction time could be a lifesaver, literally, and I'd be interested in getting some of these jerseys out there.

Thanks.

Rob

The member who has done these orders is cccorlew. He will usually work up a new order when there is enough interest.
So if you want one you need to pay attention to when the next order is being put together.

I'm sure there are others.. feels good to be a first responder to a first post by likes of Robbie, like a brush with celebrity. Googling under Google; slow moving jerseys and signs will render more

These cloth triangles are pretty visible and can be mounted on bike or bicyclist without a lot of trouble.

Thanks, all. I like the 3 Feet Please, read the story on it, too. I'll pay attention to 50+ and see if some of those jerseys show up.
I've got a reflective vest, and wear the ankle bands, too (leftovers from running days).

There once was an album, various artists, that would make a great jersey for me..."Old and In the Way"
I think I bought it for the Stone's a capella version of Wild Horses that was on it. Thoe days are kind of hazy.

Good to see old and new on here, a valued C&V poster.

Great album. Jerry Garcia, David Grisman and Vassar Clements kicking out some good bluegrass. They did do a great cover of Wild Horses.

I'm the 50+ jersey making guy
I plan on a 50+ reorder in slightly pre spring.
My plan: Let folks get over Christmas, post the announcement so I can do the actual order in late March.

Oops, that was me. Left one "c" out of cccorlew's handle.

Just remember that when you get the 50+ jersey- get your reasons behind it ready.

The number of Century rides this year- The number of mountains climbed- the number of times you have applied to Club Tombay and been rejected as no pics posted- or perhaps you have a better one that you prefer to use.
