Tanlines on Clydes Thread. That time of year!

They are starting already! Not even Summer. 2 rides without leg covers and I'm all marked up again!

NO, I WON'T SHAVE 'EM!

We're still getting snow at 2000', and rainy afternoons in the low 40s.

No tan happening up here.

Thanks. I think.

Nice sock line.

I ride at night, so I shall never have those wicked lines.

Thanks for sharing. That actually makes the kilt thread look attractive, and that's going some.

My summer tan faded, but never entirely went away.

My heritage gives me a not-so-pale look all year, no matter how little sun I get. My tan from last season has mostly faded away though... 3 months of sun to get tan, 9 months of rain to let it fade away.

i have a nasty habit of pretty much never tanning. Its like, ultra white, and then all of a sudden, i'm super burned. I hate it. However, I'm not going to be shaving my legs either, but I do trim them very very short with my set of hair trimmers. I mean, i'm already committing a major cycling faux pas by having both calves tattooed.

My wife is far more fair skinned than my brown self so she was/is the same. Every ride she burned. Last summer we packed on the block before the rides. Then her skin decided to tan rather than burn. Used the 'apply 15 minutes before in the shade' method. Seemed to work, and GAWD do I love tanlines on the femile!

For the record, this was a 100 degree plus day incase you're wondering why we ride naked!
