Rapha Swift jersey

Having just been run over while wearing the most hig-vis Rapha top I own - a club jersey with an acid yellow stripe round the middle - I've come to the conclusion that it matters not what you are wearing. If a driver is blind, he will not see you, even if you are cycling down the road dressed from head to toe in flourescent orange.

So you might as well go out in a navy Rapha Swift jersey, with little black birds on it.

The idea of the Swift is to recognise Portland, Oregon, the home of US cycling. The Swift is also rather common there, apparently.

It's a retro little number that's going to make you look as cool as hell as you're taking that descent at 50 mph.

Just be sure to keep an eye out for anything that might not see you. Even low-flying wildlife.
