I’ve been wanting to write this post ever since participating in the Livestrong Challenge in early October. Consider it part 2 of what to wear. Cycling attire is known for its bright colors and tight fit. I generally like jerseys that are easily visible in all sorts of light conditions. I’m always on the lookout for unique jerseys that really stand out. This is what I was doing while scanning for my friend Darryl at the start of the Livestrong Challenge.
I ran across a woman wearing this jersey. I recognized it immediately because it’s one of my all time favorites and, sadly, it was destroyed when I crashed. My wife gave it to me years ago because she thought it would be funny to give me a jersey called Illegal Alien where the alien was asking you for a green card. I’m an immigrant myself (born in Germany) and had a green card myself at the time. Primal has put out some pretty good jersey designs over the years and this was one of their better ones.
I replaced it with another Primal jersey. Like the previous one, it’s reasonably bright and easily recognizable. I have to say, I was a bit disappointed by Primal’s selection this time around. In the past they’ve had some classics, but the recent ones all seem a little forgettable. I wish they would bring some of their older designs back.
I also have a University of Texas Longhorns cycling jersey that I sometimes wear. For the Livestrong Challenge, I wore my Livestrong kit. Do you have a favorite jersey? What do you like about it?
