  1. Went for a ride in the awesome weather yesterday. Now have about a centimeter of sunburn on top of my forearm where there is a gap between my jacket and gloves. It looks so stupid!! Arghh!!

  2. so thats how coral snakes get their stripes!
  3. Yes, common problem. My solution has been to put sunburn cream on the back of your wrists before and at breaks during riding and to grab some sports tennis wrist bands to cover that area.
  4. Or you could extend the sun cream to your lower arms.

    Seems to work for me - and I have short gloves.
  5. i got sun burnt at the prac session!! didnt realise hot warm it got till i got home, had a splitting headache
  6. There wasn't much shade at the secret location.
  7. Two watches, perhaps?
  8. gauntlets are good.
