    Went out for a 56 mile ride today and when I got home I noticed that i had a nice bit of cyclists suntan. Just a 6 inch section on my arms.

    Summer must be on its way :sun::biggrin:

    Incredibly, I still have a tad of cyclists tan from last year on my right leg. No trace on my left though. Weird.

    Port out, Starboard home.

    Daylight on the outward leg, darkness on the return?

    Good thinking CP. Trouble is, I look an even bigger p***t in bib shorts now than usual:sad:

    I still have some flip flop tan on my feet! I still go out cycling in long sleeves though so no tan yet.

    I got myself a nice sharp line across my biceps yesterday. Must've got a dose of Potsy's northern light- Garforth, Ledsham, Pontecalo, Cas Vegas, lovely ride.
     
  9. From my hands to my shoulder, total sun burn, still hurts, got it on Saturday, I'm waiting for my arms to start shedding skin now.

    God knows what I will look like at the end of this summer, I've still got my tan from last year on my arms and also my lilly white Panda hands from wearing mitts still.

    I still have the remains of last year's cycling tan - it's pretty obvious on my feet.

    Just to remind you all, this was my tan last year (and delthebike's too - he's the one with the hairy legs):

    I'm willing to bet I have the whitest legs in England. I have slightly rosy cheeks from the weekend though.

    I'd challenge you on the whitest legs Chris - mine are high-viz.
