haha indeed - I've got that tan myself - even more distinct than yours. Legs have the cyclist tan too. :lol: it's a badge of honour I'll wear proudly. :D

Yes, that too. My upper body is wafer thin, legs are quite muscular. I'm trying to sort that out to fix up some bad things caused by that.

.... you have weird dreams about watching cycling at the Olympics. Winter Olympics. :P

Now the weird(er) bit.... On big-wheeled unicycles. With full aerobars & space-helmet kit! :lol:
I had a thought, but it got run over as it crossed my mind.
