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

Glad to say, I actually haven't been there. Only wore plain jerseys with nothing but a little brand logo on them up unil now.

I've ridden with a guy who wore a Sponge Bob jersey.

I still carry my OCP badge with honor so no tacky jerseys for me.

I've never been there. I ride in regular people clothes, no one would ever look at me and say "there's a guy who does EPO."

I have 2 USPS jerseys that I used to wear regularly. Does that count?

Sponge Bob jerseys NOT acceptable. But Sponge Bob socks are awesome!

Do you ever get mistaken for a DWI cyclist?

I've had a couple of jerseys that fit the bill. I thought they were stylish when I bought them. Fortunately, no photographic record exists.

Naturally, none of my current riding apparel is hideous in any way.

This is one of my personal favorite riding kits. It's not really matching but I almost always wear this jersey with this pair of bibs:


I also have Sponge Bob, Super Grover, Moon Pie, Cheez-Its, and Drunk Cyclist jerseys... Gotta keep it fun while you suffer.

The point is that RoadHolland wants people to send in photos that he can use for advertising.

What point did you think I was missing, exactly? I'm having a hard time following you because you're being vague.

No, their ice cream is delicious, doesn't matter how bad the jersey is.

Also, there was this thread from awhile ago..

Don't hit that link because you will begin to see RoadHolland ads if you do.

Does anyone know if the Descente Spongebob Squarepants jersey was made in race or club cut?
