Is wearing a cycling jersey better than wearing a T-shirt?

Yes, jerseys have multiple benefits. A jersey’s moisture wicking materials remove the moisture (sweat) from your skin, keeping you dry and much more comfortable. A jersey also fits tighter than a T-shirt so it does not flap while you are cycling. Jerseys have rear pockets, which makes reaching for items like food, a cell phone, or other riding essentials very convenient. Zippered fronts on jerseys allow for more ventilation on a hot day. Bright colors are highly recommended, as you are more visible to other road users.
