Use a sunscreen with a Sun Protection Factor (SPF) at least 30 or above and be reapplied for atleast every 2 hours. Also, look for shaded routes on tree-lined streets or trails.

I only looked at this thread because I thought someone was being sarcastic. My apologies to the OP.

Yep! 50 years after those big outdoor concerts (or put your favorite activity HERE), you pay the piper..., and it was not Ian Anderson's flute.

Any burning, itchiness, or peeling is too much for me.

sun burn, vitamin D, biking

I try to get my rides in before 10:00am and 4:00pm to prevent sun burn
