    50+ Jersey Pic, as ordered by CCCorlew

    I am about 2 years too late but I finally got a picture of my 50+ jersey after a ride this afternoon. Here it is, I apologize in advance for the ugly mug.

    Attachment 253156

    Attachment 253157

    Monica took these for me after my afternoon ride. Wives are the best! Sorry it took so long Curtis but I got it done finally.

    As y'all can see I am size huge (6'-1" and ~245 lbs but steadily losing, thank goodness!) always have been since birth. Never a threat to the feather merchants here but I am determined to recover completely and work myself to USA Cycling racing and a Cat 5 to start and some 50+ age group racing like senior Games and such, You may flame as necessary

    Nice, Bill! Still looking like a Marine! I just wish the picture wasn't so teen-tiny!

    Craig,
    Roger that, put it exactly as we say it. No "Ex-", former, or other appellations. Just Marine, as the newest Commandant put things recently. It has been 35 years since I got out, really still a kid, but safe in the knowledge I could work through anything that came my way. Other than Monica, my wife, it is the most important thing that took place in my life. It stands me well in life, and beside my kids know every jar head joke in the book and take delight in using them on the Old Man!! I was a Peacetime Marine, thankfully, and don't hold a candle to those that are protecting our freedoms and of course "The Greatest Generation" Marines and all the branches of the military.

    Yeah, I have been told I am efficient as a wind break beforeamongst other things. Doesn't bother me, I am regaining my health pretty well, feel much better since I got back riding when I like and want (pretty much daily if possible) and feel happy about my cycling and life in general. 50+ simply rules, that is why I represent' in the colors!! When Curtis(cccurlew) is finally able to organize another kit purchase I'll be in line for another SS jersey, a LS jersey, Bib shorts and a wind jacket. This forum keeps me feeling good and keeps me riding.

    Cccorlew here does a 50+ kit order when he gets the time (it is very intensive and he does this alone,) you'll see an announcement posted by Curtis when he is ready to do the order process. You can do a search and find the old threads for some idea of what items are available. He usually does this order in the early fall but it isn't a fixed thing and his plate is full right now.

    Curtis designed the kit and the 50+ emblem his self and the other kit items look super too. I am going to order another short sleeve jersey, a long sleeve jersey, bib shorts and a wind jacket this time (as said previously.) Watch for the announcement and get your order in quickly. It is worth the wait.

    Thanks for the photo!
    Is guess I'd better do this project again. When I get done teaching my summer class —late June — I'll do an energy check.

    On Tour de Hood, on the fringes of Mt. Hood in Oregon. Worn proudly.

    The guy that took the picture is 70+. He finished the ride, too.

    I may have to get me one of those jerseys. Of course, I really don't need one for people to tell that I'm not in my forties.

    Hi Curtis, Yes, I already have a 50+ jersey and shorts but I would buy another jersey if you do a full-zip next time!

    Maybe I'm just biased, but I think everyone looks great in their 50+ jerseys!

    Maybe it's the jersey! It is really distinctive and easy to spot.

    I had two or three riders remark favorably on the jersey during the recent ride in Tennessee. These are from the 50+ ride taken by the event sponsors:
