Not So Sexy Tan Lines

If you’re concerned about white lines on your face from your helmet straps, grow a beard.
Strange tan lines are part of the game. I ride in Shimano Sandals. They make for a really weird pattern.
Shortly after I started riding, I looked down at my hand on the keyboard and thought, “Wow, that’s an odd bruise. I can’t remember hitting my hand.” Then I looked at the left one. Same bruise mark.
Suddenly it dawned on me: bike gloves.
I consider the unusual tan lines not to be silly, but an indicator of many happy hours on the bike.
