Black and white minstrel show...

Postby rodgers73 » Tue Aug 07, 2012 22:39 pm

Been getting a bit sunburnt on my arms this year while out riding and wearing gloves (not in the UK!), which has left my hands paler than the rest of the arm. I'm on holiday now and my arms are tanning at a faster rate than my (now exposed) hands.

This is starting to make me look a bit daft. I don't mind cycling stripes but this rubbish - any thoughts on what to do??

Great conversation starter if you like talking about cycling! Wear your gloves on holiday and get them razor sharp!

You're a cyclist; wear your weird tan lines with pride. White hands, strap lines down the side of your face, white 'panda eyes' from your bins and brown ovals on your head from the slats in your lid.

I take the same approach to my hair style and clothes: I don't have to look at them, if it's a problem it's your problem!

I might start telling people I'm the first person in the world to have a successful double hand transplant...

Definitely don't put a broad band of suntan lotion around your mouth and eyes. Definitely don't do that :lol:

Wear a gimp mask while out and tell them you've had a head transplant. :wink:
