Grow Your Jersey Collection One Ride at a Time – 2014

I rode about 7,000 kms in 2013.  A number of weekends were devoted to organised events, mostly century rides.  You can see photographs of the jerseys that were given to participants in those 2013 events here.

2014 has been a year of much less cycling.  Just over 3,000 kms.  Despite this, I managed to complete a number of organised events, and collected more jerseys.

The first event of the year was the OCBC Cycle Malaysia ride.  The ride that took us through the closed streets of Kuala Lumpur.  The colours and event logo are unchanged.  The logo is horizontal across the chest this time, instead of vertical down the right side.

The organisers of the Janamanjung Fellowship Ride didn’t provide jerseys.  Participants got these t-shirts.  The graphic on the front is quite striking.  All the logos on the back are less attractive.

The organisers of the Klang Premier Century Ride gave participants a jersey and a t-shirt.  Both have a clean and simple design with very few sponsorship logos.

The Kuantan Century Ride was the first of the century events that I had ridden in 2013 as well.  One of the challenges of running an annual event must be designing a unique jersey for each year.  The Visit Malaysia logo is unchanged, but the rest of the jersey is different from last year’s.  This year’s version has much less yellow, and dark blue has replaced cyan

The Melaka Century Ride jersey was a striking green.  Which made a nice change from the usual red, blue, white and black.

The last 160 km event of the year was the Johor Masters Century Ride.  I needed the help of a couple of PowerBars to make it through this one.

The last event of 2014 was the Shimano Highway Challenge.  The jersey for this event had a design that best represents the sport, and not coincidentally, the title sponsor.

Hopefully I will get much more cycling done next year.  I have already signed up for a few events in 2015.  Body and time willing, I will collect more jerseys in 2015.

I left Malaysia in 2008 as a non-cyclist. I am back home now with two road bikes and all the paraphernalia that goes with being addicted to cycling.
