Let’s head up north to the great state of Michigan for a little while. Actually, I went to go look up some things that make the state great before we start looking at Michigan cycling jerseys.
Weird and cool facts first. The city of Colon is home to the world’s largest manufacturer of magic supplies. So you can blame Michigan for that last weird date you had. Michigan has the longest freshwater shoreline in the world and more shoreline than any state other than Alaska. I find that amazing when you look at how small Michigan is next to California.
So it should be no surprise that a big focus of the first two jerseys here involve water. And a bridge. Turns out, the Mackinac Bridge is one of the longest suspension bridges in the world at five miles long. It connects the upper and lower peninsulas. Cool!
The last one of this first set is from ScudoPro and the link will take you to a search for this style because, well, I wasn’t about to include images for every single city in Michigan here. You can refine the search for whatever town you want; they have pretty much all of them.

These last three take the state seal as the design inspiration. Wouldn’t have been my choice, but there you have it. The seal has an elk and moose as symbols of the state and the eagle as a symbol of the US. Then in the tiny picture in the middle, we have the sun rising over a lake and a man holding a gun with a raised hand, who is supposed to represent peace and the ability to defend his rights.
Oh, interesting and sad fact, while Michigan is still called the Wolverine State, there aren’t any wolverines there any more.
