Cyclists sometimes forget there are dangers out there other than falls or traffic. Dangers that are particularly acute in places where the sun shines - like here. Dangers that are doubly so for cycle commuters. Danger that is largely ignored by the media.
Taking my gloves off this morning at the gym, I noticed a sickly white color all over the back of my hands and running about 1/3 the way down my fingers. My first thought - "you know you've been riding too much when." But it's serious. I'm not sure that cars are the biggest life danger to a serious cyclist. Most of my riding is before 10AM and after 4PM - the UV is not at its worst. But be cautious, my friends. Skiiers know this and they still wind up looking like raccoons.
Subject Matter Mostly it's about local transportation cycling, as it exists in the here and now. It's got a smattering of other gratuitous toy recreation thrown in to keep y'all a little off balance. For those that don't know me, toy recreation means English & Italian cars, aircraft - and downhill skiing.
