Real Grandpas go Cycling

If this has been posted on the forum before, I apologize for the possible repeat, but could not pass it up. I saw this on FB a couple of weeks ago, and placed an order for one myself; couldn't resist.

Being a grandpa who does not care for the Bingo table, it fits!

Here is a link to the site:

Limited Edition | Teespring
I have been absent form the forum for a while. Senior care had taken quite a bit of my time the past couple of years. Back to "normal" now, whatever that is!!

I like it!

I'm 51 and still not a grandpa but I'd wear it for sure.

Cool. But I certainly don't need another cycling theme tee shirt. They seem to multiply.

I became a great-grandfather last month but I can't wear that cycling. Its a t-shirt! But I can wear it everywhere else.

[edit] Just ordered one. [/edit]

While I am, technically, a grandfather (my son and his wife have 3 sons) I still have a hard time wrapping my head around that fact, i.e. that "label" of grandfather.

So maybe I need that shirt to wear for some self-awareness therapy .

My Idea of "grandfather" is, I suppose, based on what I remember from my grandfathers when I was young. I am so NOT like them! I don't recall them doing any exercise at all, much less cycling. Watching sports on TV was as close as they got.

The only thing is, I'm turned-off by that "Real" label. I don't think I'm any more real for being a cyclist than a grandfather who's not a cyclist. Or am I being too literal?

Anyway, like Cychologist noted above, I have too many cycling T-Shirts already!

So true. My grampa sat on the porch and took it easy...he was retired and that's ok....but really, 85% of the riders I see are grandparent age. And that really blows my mind.
