Protection and safety comes first
Many riders don't want to wear road performance shirts, preferring the standard t-shirt or a hoodie. There are four major reasons for moving to instead wearing a riding shirt. During high exertion they will help keep you safe, but one day they may even help save your life. You are at a serious disadvantage on the roads, as a pedestrian or as a biker. First of all, the vehicle's two-wheeled construction makes you look smaller, particularly head-on, and it's all too normal for drivers of other vehicles to pull out of side streets without noticing an oncoming bike. This leads to another big drawback.
