    When I left home to do club ride it was overcast and slightly chilly, within a couple of hours it was baking with a slight breeze, remember saying to one of the lads its burning weather this.

    Got home and it slowly came out caught it on arms and knees have lily white hands but best of all are the three red stripes on my forehead which my daughters and missus said look like devil horns.

    Who else copped for a crisping off the sun today??

  3. I didn't get sun burnt today, I wasn't on the bike ;). I got a little red last week on the club run that might have been the standing around at the cafe.

    And yesterday's ride I finished at the Crossford Gala and met my folks/ brother/ SIL there. I'd put plenty of sun spray on the red bit and they were fine. I forgot however, I'd got my hair cut since last week and the back of my neck was now exposed, that's a bit burnt I think.

    Not burnt but the tan lines are coming along a treat. I particularly like my white feet! ;)

    I realised on Friday I was going to get burnt ... I ended up buying more sunscreen, and applying it myself... I now have a red strip across the middle of my back that I couldn't reach, that looks silly with strappy tops:sad:

    I've never needed suncream in the UK, unless you're a ginger or an albino, there's never any need....

    Nope, i put abit of sun cream on my legs and upper arms(where my skin hasnt been exposed as much) and my lower arms havent burnt, just got browner. Legs and upper arms got browner and neck got browner. Face got slightly browner aswell.
    I put sun cream on, mainly so Mum doesnt moan at me. But i've been out in the sun for about 3 hours and only my neck went slightly pink. That was a while ago though.
