What is this warm skin tingling feeling, this bright yellowy white orb in the sky? Could this be Summer in Britain?
It’s been a scorcher over the past couple of days, with temperatures reaching the high 20’s all over the UK. While we’ve been praying for warmer weather and longer days, it’s important to remember to stay safe while out on the bike.
Before you rush out the door to hit those beckoning roads and trails, remember: Safety First!
As cyclists, we’re obligated to keep our tan lines crisp and razor sharp, but we still need to slather on the sunscreen to prevent burning.
The higher the factor, the more protected you are against UV rays. It’s a good idea to buy a travel size bottle for your ride essentials so you can top-up as you sweat it off. Key places to cover is your face and neck, but it’s equally important to cover any exposed skin areas too. Don’t forget those puckering lips!
Sunglasses aren’t just for protecting your eyes from rogue debris and insects, but they are essential for taking care of your eyes from harmful sun-rays.
