Found A Good Bicycle Riding Shirt
 
Found a good T-Shirt suppler for us Clydesdales. I am 250#-114Kg, sometimes more. Finding a fair stylish shirt for ridding has been difficult and expensive. I also feel a duty to spare people who might see me riding the trauma of my body in tight spandex. I found a pretty good synthetic material soccer shirt at epicsports.com. They come in many colours and are very durable. I have had some of these shirts for several years and they have survived a multitude of washings. Do note that I do not put them in the cloths drier. Synthetic materials in the cloths drier do not go well.

FYI...I put synthetic shirts (tees, bike jerseys and bike shorts) in the dryer on the low setting for a short dry time and have never had a problem.

These look great, and the prices are awesome. Thanks for sharing the link. In your experience, do they size "to size" or are they smaller or larger? (For example, XXL is sometimes different from different manufacturers - )

I bought shirts from their site. Sizes are all over the map. Good Luck

This is true... But on this particular shirt it runs right along with the charted size. I guess it's cause they sell these in bulk to soccer teams in the USA. I once ordered a pair of padded bike shorts from them but instead of indicating a size I sent them an email with my waist and butt measurements... Ha... They sent me a XXXXXL 5XL marked FAT. I wear 44 waist pants and these shirts fit me fine at XXL.

I stocked up on brightly neon-colored nylon shirts from Walmart a few years ago when they were selling them for like $5 apiece. I haven't seen them there since, though. They make excellent riding shirts (moisture wicking and quick drying) when I don't want to wear a jersey, like on shorter rides, and I've never had an issue putting them in the dryer.

Roar? NAH!!!! I've threatened to EAT people that deride what I wear! (more correctly, threatened to steal their ride snacks...) 6'1" and 240ish, with a temper...

I bought some Ascent jerseys from Love2Pedal (forum sponsor) but it looks like they may have been close-outs..
I see one on eBay for like $4
