=v= I generally tan the same way: tan circles on the backs of
my hands and parfait-effect legs. I don't have the schmancy
biker sunglasses, but sometimes my helmet straps leave Y-shapes
near my ears.

=v= This year, though, I've had a very hard time finding the
classic cotton crochet bike gloves and my hand tan is suffering.

Cyling tan pattern is the worst. I have dark arms and shoulders; reddish
face; white hands AND LOWER LEGS! (Fronts of thighs get some color, but
backs and lowers stay white.)

If I ever start running again, it will be purely due to vanity...+

You mean I'm not the only biker who wears those things for the tan spots
they leave on the back of my hands???!

I ride home from work most days southward at local solar noon.
Consequently, I have kewl tan rectangles on my forehead where the sun
shines through the openings in my skid lid. Someone at a group ride lunch
recently warned me that I might get teased about them. (I think he
thought I'd acquired them just that day.) I replied that I worked hard
for my rectangles and I'm proud of 'em.
