Can I wear my new long sleeve yellow jersey....

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

I'll laugh at you. HAHAHA! Alright, now that that's over with, put it on and go enjoy yourself. Nothing wrong like riding, or dessing, like you're invisible.

Yes I "dess" like that all the time. The brighter the shirt, the better chance I feel inside to come back home to my family of 5. I prefer my bright neon yellow/green jerseys to all my other "pro" looking ones.

What makes you suspect you can't? (Yes, I'm trolling.)

discount jerseys are the way to go - shorts are a different story. one of my favorites is an adidas 2006 tdf that thor hushovd (credit agricole) got to wear for stage 2. am i a top tier protour rider? no. am i a ca fan? no. do i like $30 jerseys? most definately, yes. my only issue with it is that it doesn't say "Thor." The only people who seem interested in racing me are twats on mountain bikes anyways. clip the elastics in the sleeves and get on with your bad self.

if it's just plain yellow with nothing written upon the jersey, it's fine.

I've seen peeps sporting the polka dot jersey, on a flat bike path, so all signs point to yes.
