    Gaaahhhh! Forgot the sunscreen.

    I spent the better part of yesterday spinning around Albuquerque on my bike and at the end of the day my upper body looked like a lobster. The funny thing is that I did not feel drained like I normally do when exposed to too much sun. When living in the desert it pays to remember the sunscreen.

    Well, these days, you can live in a place that's mostly cloudy and still need sunscreen. Sunscreen is important for preventing skin cancer- so don't just think sun= sunscreen. Anytime you go out, you should have sunscreen. If you think of it that way, you never forget to put it on!

    Long sleeve shirt's for me. Sunscreen on the face and leg's. Have a speedy recovery.
    I love to commute and ride. Keeping a positive focus.

    +1 on long sleeve jerseys.
    I dont put sunscreen on the upper part of my face, as I dont want it running into my eyes. I rely on the sunglasses and helmet to protect that area. Had a check up at the dermatologist last Thurs and everything is OK for now.

    Being a bald man who hates hats, I pretty much put sunscreen on whenever I leave the house after a certain time of day.
    I have one bottle at work and another at home.

    SpiderMike and I rode a few hours around Houston yesterday, and I didn't wear any sunscreen. Pale skin + sleeveless jersey + summer in Houston = OUCH. My arms are in pain today.

    I need to learn my lesson.

    I usually ride sans shirt and sans sunscreen. Then again, I am of a dark complexion (Mexican).

    I live on the edge...
