Time for new gloves- to go with the PROPER cycling top and matching socks. (Shorts have to be Black).

Get some cycling sandals and you'll really have some fine tan lines.

Oh sure, first a glove tan, then a swoopy helmet with skintite jersey, then reports of speed cadence and distance records set.

The crowd cheers........"Roadie.....Roadie....Roadie...Roadie..Roadie.Roadie"

When you special order a bike rack so it will match the color of your bike........well, I don't even want to think about that.

Now you have to get a set of clothes where everything is covered but your hands, then wear it out under the sun to even things out.

The glove tan line is the first step on the slippery slope to Spandex.

The lycra can wait until you start doing 30-50 mile rides on a regular basis. I'd say about 2 months.

I live in the St Louis area so it's kind of a long ride but it still might be worth it. At the shop where I work, we're only allowed to sell the good stuff to folks who have the right glove tan.
