Yep. It's a really cool jersey that I'd love to wear, but I just bought the wrong size. Send me a private message for details.

Sadly, everyone who's seen me wearing it knows exactly what it means. (Do I look that old? )

50 centuries in a year - not even close.
50 miles before breakfast - nope.
50 slices of pie in a month - Oh yeah! I can do that.

Don't feel bad, as I reported on another thread, the first time I wore mine, my husband and I passed a young girl standing on the sidewalk and she took one look at us, waved her fingers, and said,"Awwww, how cute!" As in, "look at the little old people on their little bikes!" As it had never happened before, my first thought was,"@#&*% 50+ jersey!" Then I realized-- it wasn't the jersey.

Neat! The "Sweetness through difficulty" motto is a very nice touch!

I'm probably in on the next order whenever that happens.

I've got a women's medium. Was a bit more snug than my wife likes so I got her a large the next time around. Never worn or washed, only tried on. PM if interested.

Also kudos to Curt for making the jerseys full zip... that's a big deal to me. I have some 50+ bibs in like-new condition, size 2XL that are just too big for me. PM if interested.

I feel like a superhero in my 50+ jersey.

Someone over at Strava asked about maybe getting a Plus 50 bike decal. I think it's a cool idea. We also have the best Strava symbol, courtesy of Curtis.

Wow. I'm always thrilled that people like the jersey. Tricia and I wore ours on the Primavera Century (blog report with photos) and got a lot of positive comments.

I'm at the end of the semester right now, going crazy with grading assignments and reports, and I have the Davis Double Century in a week and a half. My plate is really full. I have a short break before I take a photo class to Cuba and a small window before doing Cycle Washington with Adventure Cycling. But in there somewhere I'll try to do another order.

Last time I got the wrong jerseys (makers error) and it took forever to get them out. Eventually everyone got their order, though I'm a bit disappointed as part of the no-profit deal was that buyers had to post a photo as part of the purchase price. There are a lot more jerseys out there than photos I've seen.

I got a "It's so nice you're still out exercising" comment from a young woman on a tri-bike during a century. So I dropped her. Hard.

I promise to order two this time around. They will go well with our new (working on, hopefully by June) ti tandem.
