Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Long & short team jersey quetion

I'm looking to splash out and buy a Pro Team Jersey for this spring/summer. Ideally, I want to get a long sleeve jersey (to protect my expensive inked arms from the sun!) but whilst shopping around I've noticed that some of the long sleeve jerseys state that they have a fleece lining in them. Obviously designed for colder morning starts, I wondered if this was the case for ALL long sleeve jerseys or if it was possible to simply buy a thin, unlined long sleeve jersey? I'm leaning towards an all white HTC to keep me as cool as possible.

Why not get a pair of sun sleeves. Then you can wear any jersey that you want. They are like a light version of arm warmers. The ones I know about are by Pearl Izumi. https://www.pearlizumi.com/publish/co...Code-9319.html

I've never used them, and only recently found them, but they might do the trick. REI sells them I know, but any PI dealer can get them for you.

A lot of people who are sun sensitive or have ink around here use sunsleeves. It's basically an armwarmer without the fleece lining and colored a light color. I have a teammate who is extremely sensitive to the sun (one of those who freckles instead of tans) who swears by them.

Thanks a lot guys. Being from the U.K I've never heard of sunsleeves before, but they are available to buy here too. Excellent bit of kit.
