Fred gear is in vogue

It's Civil War time in OR for the Ducks and the Beavs. So what better thing to wear at work than my Fred blaze orange jersey (I have a different orange jersey for the ride so I won't stink like hell at the office)? Have been getting plenty of compliments on my appearance this week, often from young women.

I doubt the Road Nazis are faring so well...

Unlikely.

On a college campus -- I assure you this is the case. Also, my commuters are way cooler than anything anyone else has and even people I don't work with seem to know how far I ride, so I get more attention than typical staff anyway.

Since I'm wearing Fred jersey, my orange is way brighter than anything anyone else has. Bright orange is considered good right now.
