Sunscreen - Put some in your bags.

Forgot to put mine on today for what was to be a short ride and turned into a real face burner. Got the reverse raccoon eyes going on tonight.

Anyone else have slathering the sunscreen on before heading out as part of your "pre-ride prep"?

Definitely part of my prep. I've had about 20 skin cancers cut out so far (not "burned off" or "frozen" I'm talking scalpel and sutures). My Dermatologist says skin cancer today was caused by damage 20 years ago, so wear your sunscreen kids.

Mine's in the tour pack. Chap stick in the glove box but that does have a tendency to melt in the extreme heat.

I think there's a market out there for chapstick with sunscreen in it and it doesn't melt. If there is such a thing, tell me which brand or where I can find it. I have to keep replacing the blobs that oozed out of the tube.

Always keep a tube of quality sunscreen (yes, there is a difference) on the scoot. Skin cancer isn't anything I want to experience.
Also always have chapstick in a pocket. Never had a problem with it melting.

Riding in the Rockies just puts you that much closer to the sun. Gooping up before and during a ride is a must.
