....I really pack on sunblock too. Especially arms and wrists. If I don't, I look like a freak, cashiers won't place change in my hand.

I don't use sunblock on my legs but I use leg cover when I can along with under layer types for the arms. On a 80 degree day, I wear arm cover when I ride in the mountains. Mostly for bugs but if i didn't....

Believe me, has nothing to do with it. I get very dark every summer.

But after posting my pic, it seems you are darker than what I first thought.

My sandals (I ride with sandals in the summer) left a semi-permanent tan on my feet. They won't disappear until well into February! Even in the winter I have to put sunscreen on my nose because my winter rides get enough sun to make me look like Rudolph.

Nice tan lines, guys!

My tan has been disappearing. No UV index to speak of for the last month.

This was back in mid 90's after a summer of playing softball tournaments. My BIL used to call me "Dark N Lovely".

......and Gina "made" me pose.

...... I'm standing in front of a clock. One of those "in thing's" of the 80's. A clock made from a piece of wood fresh of the tree. Maybe it was the 70's

Frankly, it looks more like you're face-down in a pool of your own blood - caused no doubt by a gunshot from a jealous cyclist.

I used to live in Upland. I could strip to the waist and still look like I was wearing a white T-shirt!

cycling tans are nothing, you guys should try playing golf sometime. Much much worse. Tho i do have a couple of cycling jerseys that fit my arms so tight that it looks like I put painters tape on my arms, the tanlines are that distinct!

Back in the day when non-cycling shorts were short, you could spot a fellow cyclist in a crowd by the 3/4 thigh tan-line. On closer look, the tan oval on the back of their hand would confirm. Now with SPF 80, long shorts fashionable, and 1000 different styles of cycling gloves, you can't tell a cyclist from a zumba mom.

No pics here, the dog ate my usb cord.

OMG! You are so right. Great laugh for on a Monday morning.

My cycling tan is permanent. My last name ends in an "i" and my mother's side of the family is from Reggio Calabria. What's a guy going to do?

In '00 I spent months touring out west. Came back to the east coast in August and went to the beach one day. I got a lot of laughs from women when I headed towards the water with no shirt and swim trunks. I looked like on of those black & white cookies gone awry.
