“If you can read this, I’m faster than you”

"If you can read this, I’m faster than you” is a biking saying that has been printed on many images. “If you can read this, I’m faster than you” was printed in the Orange County Register (Santa Ana, CA) on December 17, 2006, when it was printed on the back of a runner’s T-shirt.

The saying has been most popular with cyclists. “New kids hoodies now in the 7stanes shop! Featuring ‘If you can read this...I’m faster than you!’ on the back. £16.99!” was posted on Twitter by 7stanes on May 1, 2012. “⚡If you can read this, I’m faster than you⚡ @pacificandco #santafixers #santafixie #pacificandco #socks #cycling #cyclingstyle #fixiestyle #fixielife #bikeporn #inbikeswetrust” was posted on Twitter by Santafixie on September 21, 2018.

And so on. In blogs, e-mails and news reports, people who knew Megan McClung remembered her wit, her poise, her dedication – and her ability as a long-distance runner to leave almost any male Marine she met lagging behind in the dust. One friend recalled a T-shirt she sometimes wore that said on the back, “If you can read this, I’m faster than you.”

@coachjoegold no, I like it, it’s along the lines of “if you can read this… I’m faster than you!” LOL

Designing a shirt that says on the back: “if you can read this I’m in front of you”. I bet the bikers will dig it.
