lots of groups have thei own special days and thems, think we have “formal day” sometime during the week, first and last day team jersey ( used to be t-shirt)day. Some teams order different jerseys so often they have a different one each day.

This is my first year so just gathering info. I’m chartering with PBV. Don’t know if they would be considered a team and if they have any special days or not. I have allot of easy to see type jerseys with no emphasis on them. Probably just change into a clean one of them each day that isn’t a special day.

You made the right decision with PBV! PBV is not considered a team but they do offer (for sale) a few nice jerseys/shirts! The jerseys I wear are meant to be conversation starters. I don’t wear any of my RAGBRAI jerseys on the ride. I figure nobody is gonna ride up ans say “Hey, I see you’ve ridden RAGBRAI”, LOL!!!!!

Actually Michrider, your comment got me to thinking. In this area we have some time set apart for breast cancer awareness. The umpires wear the brightest pink umpire shirts you’ve ever seen. They have to purchase them just for those games. I’ve seen the players wearing pink uniform shirts and even the bases were painted pink during one game. All to bring awareness to breast cancer. If I knew most of the people in the ride were going to wear a pink jersey, i would do it also. You’ve been in it a long time. Who can you call and get the word out that one day will be breast cancer awareness emphasis day?

Ok, so at this point we have, “Clean outfit day”(I already knew of this one), possibly red, white, & blue day on wednesday and then Lake Superior State University day sometime during the ride if I can find a jersey from that school were my daughter graduated.

Getaclue are you aware of the Tour de Pink ride in September just up the road at Prairie View A & M? It’s a really well planned century and although I’m not familiar with them there are several shorter distance rides. I didn’t know about the “pink day” but I’ll break out one of these jerseys for that one. College day is a problem for me. I can’t find one for my alma mater, North Texas, although they do have a cycling club. Instead I’ll be representing my son’s school and the reigning Heismann and Women’s National Champs Baylor Bears. Sic ’em!!

Pink Day! Team Flamingo always wears neon pink jerseys when we ride! Most of men also dye their beards pink and women dye their hair. While we support breast cancer awareness and fit right in for that day, we wear pink because we like to stand out in the crowd (on one leg of course) on RAGBRAI.
