Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Is this jersey awful?

Is this jersey awful?



I don't own any jerseys (I've always thought they were a bit pretentious unless you're racing) but am doing more and more semi-serious riding and figure I should think about investing in some.

I really just want some plain black ones but I don't see many of those around.

That is not appropriate for "semi-serious riding"

That is more for "formal-serious riding."

Nashbar has a white tee shirt with pocket in the back.

That would be for "casual-serious riding or "informal-serious riding."

You could wear when you pick up your prom date on your bike. Then take it over some sweet jumps.

(Am I the only one who thinks that bike jerseys in yellow should only be won? And they should never be available in XXL.)

That is the most awesome jersey I have ever seen. Way better than those every sq mm logo jerseys people wear everyday.
