    Default How the Sun sees you



    When I played ultimate, there was a doctor who always wore a brimmed hat, played in long sleeves, and put on sun screen (and no he was not sun sensitive). It was one of those "if you who knows a hell of a lot more about this than I am doing this ~ then maybe I should too" - moments.

    I read another doctor who says we should basically put on sun screen twice. Basically because most of us do such a lousy job that putting it on once usually is too anemic to get the job done.

    YouTube's blocked here at work, but I'm going to step out on an uneducated limb and just say that I assume this is just one more reason for me to continue to prefer overcast riding in late fall and early spring to anything else...

    Get some sun/solar sleeves. With the wind created on a bike and the fact they block the sun I find them cooler than riding in short sleeves.

    Get a bucket hat/wide brimmed hat (my personal choice at the moment) For golf... bit harder when riding a bike...

    put sunblock on your hands and face

    wear sunglasses

    If you aren't doing anything requiring lots of exertion/stretching wear pants. They make some really light weight pants these days.


    I burn like its my job and have had no issues since getting smarter about what I wear going outside.
