Hey, does anyone know where I can get a Colombia jersey, can be current or vintage - it matters little. I'm headed out there on my touring bike for 2 months in January and February, kind of figured it would be fun to have an appropriate jersey...

Not getting a bit tired of life, Mike, are You? I have noticed that most cyclist that do South- and Central America on bicycle bypass Columbia.

Maybe you would want to have a FARC-jersey to swap with? (on second thought, that might be a violation of the Terrorist Act, and thus get You arrested!) You will of course report how the trip went?! I have cleared my calendar for some cycling adventures as well... Enjoy :)

How does this look to You?

hey, re bored of life... well, maybe a bit... :? but I've been in far worse places. I taught English in Cambodia in the early 90s when bullets were flying and much of the country was too dangerous to travel... nights under curfew etc etc, and I've had guns up my nose in both Timor and Northern Laos around the same time when things in those places were a little 'unstable'... oh, and the afghan/pakistan boder regions were interesting too. It's always those kind of places that are the most fascinatiing, and a single bloke on a bicycle never seems to attract much attention other than 'novelty' value... the logic seems to be that if you're travelling by bike then you're not generally perceived to be on much value....
but yes, stay tuned. If things are bad in the south around the border then I'#ll just bugger off to Northern Peru instead. easy :D

p.s, thanks for the jersey link, might be a tad too big but that doesn't matter really when touring!

Have you tried Prendas as they seem to advertise them fairly frequently.

What size?

It seems to have calmed down in Columbia but a couple famous Columbian cyclists were kidnapped before, so wearing a national team jersey might not be such a good idea.
