    Holy crap, hahaha, AWESOME.

    I don't think anyone will respond because that is untoppable.

    I had really good glove tanlines (like "What is wrong with your hands?") but they've faded with disuse

    Yup, we get lots of sun here in Cali and I tan!

    I used to wear Specialized BG gloves. Drove me crazy cause it had a quarter size opening on the back of the hand. Round tanlines on the back of my hand. When I handed a cashier money, they'd sometimes pull back like I had a disease or sumthin'!

    Piffle! A California tan is easy to get.

    I did this in Seattle.

    Imagine the tan I'd have if I wasn't a Wookiee.

    Here's one that was probably posted elsewhere in the forums at some point.

    Thats just not fair for us riders in Canada.

    I wasn't sure -- it's hard to judge from that photo.

    Ok here are my very lame tan lines, it's been a pretty cool summer here in Ontario and all my bibs are a different length so no real set lines. Poor excuses but hey I gotta try.

    Best thing about cycling is when I'm at work I'm thinking of cycling, when I'm cycling I'm thinking about cycling.

    Man, I don't even want to talk about arms!...I've been wearing a jersey when I ride in traffic around home. Plus it's usually about 100 around here so I need both bottles. On the weekends we ride to the coast so it's cooler and plenty of parks to refill. I can spare a cage for the camera so I wear a tanktop on the weekends.

    From wearing the jersey on weekdays, I've developed this ugly farmer's tan. I try to even it out on the weekends rides but it's still behind! But my hands still look light.

    Funky lines!

    Arm-wise I've got what looks like a tan pair of arm warmers: Wrists to short sleeves is tan. Oh, and fingertips. Can't forget that super-classy look of tan fingertips, pale hands from mid punching-knuckle to wrist, then tan again on the arms.

    The pale hands thing is kind of creepy. Mine look like they've been soaking for too long. But my fingers are as white as the rest of my hands!

    I'm proud of my glove tanlines because they show I'm out for long enough rides to get them, since I always start out around daybreak.

    I've got the usual glove, jersey and shorts lines, but these courtesy of my Keen commuter sandles have to be the best. I ride north in the morning and south in the afternoon, so the stripes are much darker on my right foot than my left. My husband calls me "tiger foot". lol

    In Seattle that's not a tan, that's rust!

    Beanz, you should wear sandals doing yard work or something to even out that tan! Actually I ride without gloves occasionally just to get some sun on my hands. I've got a weird tan line going on my wrist from the RoadID bracelet. I'll post a pic if I can get a good one. It's kind of faded with this cloudy weather we've been having on the East Coast.

    I would like to ride without gloves but I use mine to wipe galss and debris form the tires after running thru. I also wipe Gina's rear tire for her. So figure that's 8000-9000 miles a year of wiping.

    She gets upset cause I won't ditch my wiping gloves. I have other sets by why destroy them when these are perfectly fine for the job!..I save the others for organize and group rides. Sandals for yardwork? Not fer me!

    I've no photos, thankfully, to share. And the only 'tanning' oddity I have is the 'watch line' on my right wrist.
