In Major Taylor’s time road congestion wasn’t near the issue like today. Cyclists of the Major’s era contended less with 4-wheels and more with 4-legs passing them. Back then horses, and a few horseless carriages, made up road traffic.
These days cycling is completely different. Cyclists are forced to share the road with distracted, aggressive and impatient drivers. Overcrowded roadways are the norm be it urban or rural riding. It’s hardly an exaggeration to say cycling is well more dangerous today then during the times Major Taylor trained and competed.
These days one way to be a safer cyclist is to be more visible. Give approaching motorists the ability to see you from a distance. Once closer, drivers need to know to pass you a safe distance to your left. The law, or norm, in many states is 3 feet. With the fluorescent yellow color of the ‘Gimme Three Feet’ cycling jersey you’ll stand out better to motorists and offer them a reminder to allow you proper passing room.
The ‘Gimme Three Feet’ jersey is made in bright fluorescent yellow color. Flo yellow is generally accepted to be the brightest and easiest seen color to approaching motorists. Add to that the large, distinctive black graphics and the ‘Gimme Three Feet’ jersey helps you to Be Seen and Be Safe. An additional rear reflective safety tab helps with visibility in low light conditions.
The ‘Gimme Three Feet’ jersey is made from CoolMax-style wicking material for riding comfort. Features include full-length front zipper and three rear storage pockets. A bottom hem silicon gripper keeps the jersey from riding up while cycling. Printed with sublimation ink process to guarantee colorfast, no fade, ever.
The ‘Gimme Three Feet’ cycling jersey is designed in Club Cut styling offering a more relaxed fit than skin-tight race jerseys. See below for exact size measurements and construction details.
