Let me fill you in on the back story. In April, Elden Nelson, author of the popular Fat Cyclist blog, learned that his wife Susan was stricken with a serious form of cancer. Of course, Fatty's (as he calls himself) fans, being cyclists and all, rallied to his side in support with well-wishes delivered through comments on his blog as well as cards.
Not only that, but Twin Six, the hippest jersey maker in the industry, rolled out a limited edition Team Fatty jersey and companion gear in support of Elden and his wife, but also to fight cancer in general. All of the proceeds of Team Fatty gear will be split between covering Susan's medical expenses and recovery trip (she wants to visit Italy once she is well enough) and the Lance Armstrong Foundation (and if you've ever had doubts about the good an organization like this can have, read this account from Elden). Now how's that for cool?
So everybody say it with me out loud:
I want to help help a fellow bike blogger - I am a fat cyclist.
I want to save a life - I am a fat cyclist.
I want to cure cancer - I am a fat cyclist.
I am proud to be a fat cyclist.
Now...get yourself a jersey (they are for both men and women) and wear it to your next race or club ride, and do it with pride, you hear! Thank you.
