I have 3 jerseys from past rides (2012, 2014 and 2017). I plan to add a 4th one this year. Couple of questions on the old ones:
Do you wear your old RAGBRAI jerseys routinely as part of your cycling attire on group or training rides throughout the year, or do you reserve their wear primarily for RAGBRAI?
Also, for the above 3 rides, I completed all 7 days thus I bought a jersey as my personal memento of that accomplishment. In 2018 however, due to a conference I had to attend I was only able to ride one day, thus I did not buy a jersey for that year. I guess I treat buying the jersey as kind of my “reward”…so in my mind, I guess I didn’t earn the right to one in 2018. This is my own weird quirk, but I’m curious about other viewpoints on this matter.
