Cute!

My favorite bike jerseys come from Twin 6.  Just in case you need more....

https://www.twinsix.com/gear/womens-tech

The fit is AMAZING!  There's no elastic on the arms or bottom, it just lays really nice.  The black Grand Prix is my favorite.

They are a local company so I do see them everywhere - usually see the black Grand Prix about twice every ride.  But it just makes me feel like I'm in a cool club.

I was opening this expecting to see a jersey with a bunch of primary colours and basic shapes, square, circle, triangle, etc, made by PlaySkool.

Simon's cat rocks! Nice find

I was refering to the idea that someone else is wearing the same jersey when you show up......yeah, real men don't care.  I guess I shoulda bolded it the first time. Yell

Well I draw the line at a "Hello Kitty" glitter jersey. That would be unacceptable.

I choose my bike jerseys using two criteria:
1. It's not on the floor of the bathroom or in the wash.
2. It's on the top of the clean pile or hanging on the rack and dry enough to wear, whichever is closer to where I'm getting dressed.

I definitely draw the line at Hello Kitty. I do want the Cat in the Hat jersey though. And there's a Sugoi jersey with beavers and maple leaves on it. I guess I want a wardrobe full of jerseys with animals on it!

good save, j/k

i've just found that most people in the mass rides around here identify with a rider based on their attire rather than their bike/name. it gets confusing unless you are part of a local team or club.

lame? maybe. its an excuse to buy a new jersey though, and i like excuses to spend money on workout stuff.

For the longest time I refused to wear a bike jersey because I thought you had to "earn" it or win it or be semi-pro. At the least, I thought you had to be a decent rider (I'm sloooow). So the Simon's Cat jersey is perfect. No, I don't take myself seriously, thank you very much. I'm wearing CATS!

Tiffanator: I KNOW RITE? Most awesome jersey. It's new, so I don't believe it's available anywhere on a US site yet. I hate to think what my hubby paid in shipping/customs fees.

Love it! However, in the near future, as you get faster and faster, I'm predicting that you will need this 'barely-hanging-on' Simon's cat jersey:

I wouldn't be able to draft behind that, I'd be laughing way too hard. Brilliant.

My first jerseys are from the late 70's, I need to dig them up and get some pics. No logos, just solid color patterns. One wool, the other Acrylic, the "high tech" material at the time.

I think I threw out my old leather hair net helmet, wish I had kept that now.

Well I said that I was not going to do it this season, but I cracked. I broke down and bought a new bike. I went out and bought a shiny new Cannondale road bike.
