The 50+ Forum jersey seemed ... immature for my age.
The 60+; and 65+ Thread jerseys never happened.

So, ……sometimes you just take things into your own hands.

I like wool for Puget Sound summer mornings.


Terracotta for a spicy color.
YMMV.
Ride On!




Clear your handlebars … and your mind will follow.

I was thinking more like this - technically it could last decades!

Believe it or not, you can order a jersey with several designs, select your own colors, and add your own text and graphics from a company called Owayo.
I had them make up my "kit". Very comfortable.

Nor I.

edit: actually at 6’1”, I’m sorta between size L and XL. With nylon & stretchable garments = L. With wool = XL

In reply to a separate request from another BF oldster.

If you like wool jerseys

www.OregonCycleWear.com = for jersey; embroidery by their recommended vendor, referenced on their website.

Not affiliated, ... just a satisfied customer with 4 orders over the years, I think my 6th jersey from this vendor.. Soft wool, machine wash mine 'Delicate' as needed / air dry on top of towel, don't overstuff pockets and they will last a long time. Great sleepwear when worn-out. Short and long sleeve experience same with my jerseys..

Wool is not my choice for hot days, but sure feels good where appropriate. Here in Seattle even in July morning lows are in the 50s, typically (and presently)

Each to their own.
My wife doesn't appreciate self-deprecation from her senile, old man husband.

If using for decades, given 'Exhaust Warning', I suggest buying a size smaller than normal to avoid tailflap brown-out anomalies. And black shorts. Pure air only comes out of medical canisters.
