Glove tan this early?
We had a couple of really nice days here this past week. I've had some trouble with my business, chained to my desk most days, so I couldn't get out as much as I wanted to. But I did get out for a couple of one-hour head-clearing rides. Wore my half-finger gloves and short sleeves both times. Didn't think anything of it, it was just nice to feel the levers and bar tape after six months.
So today I was at my PT job, washing up for lunch and 'lo! I have the beginnings of this season's glove tan!
It's sure to fade since we have a few days of April showers in the forecast, but what a treat to see.
(Yes, I know about skin cancer and getting wrinkly and that I really should be appalled by anything other than the Rochester pallor. Just give me this.)
