If you were to "go out" from a bike fall no one will notice your jersey,...even in the US.
We are nerdy because we know the fun in efficient muscular movement to facilitate forward progress, hence the jersey is totally appropriate.😂

Never understood novelty jerseys.
I get and what you're saying and agree but, not everyone can afford $100 jerseys and as opposed to wearing a tee shirt or a sweatshirt it to, is a huge improvement.. as for the novelty part, it's a good idea not to take yourself too seriously.

I can only speak for myself, so no, I wouldn't be triggered at all.

Besides, it's a waste of spirit to go about looking for offense.

True. And what I meant was, I don't like them because they're usually of poor quality.

I will say, however, my expensive clothing has likely cost me less long-term. And not just for kit, I've got Ralph Lauren dress shirts that are still going strong after many years of use. Although I understand if someone isn't currently in the position to make the investment, I've been there myself.

I like it. Yes there are some who might be triggered. Too bad. GO for it.

This can be a trigger for some, but it is popular on cars.

Though evolution is as much a unscientific, faith-based philosophy as any religion, I don't find the jersey offensive. I looked at it more as an amusing endorsement of cycling, than a comment on the creation-vs-evolution debate. My objection would be more in line with the earlier comments about novelty jerseys, and the cheap material they're typically made of. Crappy jersey material does suck, and the OP may end up with a jersey he likes.........that just hangs in the closet.

I don't subscribe to evolutionary theory, but I think the jersey is just fine. As other's have stated, just riding your bike on a road is enough to trigger just about anyone with a steering wheel in their hands

However, IMHO, the "evolution" theme has been pretty played-out. I'm a software developer and I've seen images like the following for years, so I don't really find the theme funny or creative any more.

I seriously doubt anyone would be triggered. Perhaps you are thinking too hard. I have a similar T-shirt for photographers, and I'm one of those Christians.

I doubt anyone will care about your jersey, OP. Wear what makes you feel good.

I think they are great... People choose to be offended, so have fun and wear what you want plenty will enjoy and laugh with likeminded others (these are people you want to get to know and enjoy their company.)

No one was triggered when I wore mine today.

I bought mine from OCG, however.
