Summer is Over, Lose the SoCal tan

How long before I'm restored to natural cover?

Anybody else about to lose a tan? Pics?

I started removing my gloves during some ride just to stay somewhat even on the wrists. Couple years ago I used gloves witha small opening on the back of the hand, had to ditch them cause most cashiers would see it and refuse to place my change in hand. Did alot of picking up money from the counters!

If summer is, in fact, over, I wish the weather better reflected it. It was so muggy today that I passed on my post-lunch pint and cigar.

That is not a pretty thought. Guess I will find a new riding partner, thank you very much.

You could say that. It's a staple, just like milk.

I stopped riding in gloves alltogether unless it's cold outside.So they thought you had some skin disease? I spent alot of time wearing flip flops this summer so i didnt get a bad tan line,thighs different story.
If you get a bikerfox outfit,i'm driving up to LA or where ever and riding the damn SART bike trail with you....

Also if you check his jersey it says"sports service" if i was broken down in a race and that pulled up,i might just give him my bike and walk away,to the nearest pub,to drink away that memory.

I disagree, we are fast approaching our Santa Ana season. Hot windy and dry are the usual symptoms.
I usually tell people not from here, that we have two seasons; summer and summer-lite

Wow Beanz! I thought I was bad! I got out of the shower yesterday and my wife said it looked like I was Mexican with a white body suit on At work, I've gotten more questions in Spanish than ever before too. Maybe I should order that Rosetta Stone program...
