Farmer tans(10 posts)

Just noticed something in the mirror that I haven't noticed before.

I have not ridden a bike since July 7, 2001. In the last three months I have not been outside except in long pants.

I still have tan legs that begin where my bib shorts end.

This has never happened before. When we lived in Utah, I always lost my farmer tan in the winter.

Weird, huh?

I'm in Montreal; still have mine.

I was in the locker room at the gym the other day and one of the trainers [a body builder, but a good guy] had a laugh about my tan.

your church issued garments anymore ;-) I didn't know you lived in Utah, Mike, whereabouts? When? I went to most of my high school (late 80's) there (Brighton) and my parent moved back about 7 years ago. No, we're not Mormon.

BTW nice picture of you and I assume your wife in last year's RftR jerseys. Did she ride as well? Cool to have a face w/ a name. . .
I still have mine, too -- nmms

Farmer tan is fine. It's the white hands ...laffeaux

Every summer I end up with tan arms, and less tanned hands due to wearing biking gloves. I always feel stupid coming to work after a long weekend in the saddle, and looking like "socks" the cat.
Or how about the brown polka dots on the the back of your hands?Sintesi

I get these when I wear old-style crocheted gloves.

I remember the old polka-dots tans we used to get on our hands with crochet gloves. The PI gloves I use now cover my whole so it's not an issue, but I used to get comments occasionally about the strange tan patterns on my hands.
