Making Head Lines

Most of us have suffered at one time or another from Helmet Hair. You know how it is: you get back from a ride, your hair is all sweaty and it sticks up like a set of horns. Well, for those of us who are - shall we say - more "follicly streamlined", we have a different problem.

When you head out for a bike ride and the temperature is in the 50s, you don't always think about sunscreen. After all, you're wearing long sleeves, eyewear, and a hat. The problem is that all those air vents on your helmet are also UV vents. So if you're like me and you no longer have your natural layer of protection, you wind up with 2 red stripes going down your forehead. To make matters worse, I was wearing my helmet too tightly which made the skin puff out even more.

I used to think that the spandex shorts were the biggest indignity of bike riding. No more.
