I don't do "do-rags."


As far as I know, I'm the only bikie to wear one. My ears ache if I
allow wind to blow on them, and a white linen do-rag is the easiest
way to cover them without undue insulation.

Not really. I've used one for several years now :-)

After many years of working in tropical sun I have considerable sun
damage to my skin in various areas and the do-rags my wife makes for
me are big enough to cover the tops of my ears and have a flap to
cover the back of my neck.

What might be called arm-wormers but are actually sun-sleeves are
almost universally worn as soon as the sun gets up in the sky.

Women cyclists go even further. they wear ankle length tights, long
sleeved jerseys and a head cover that is essentially a "balaclava"
made from a stretchy colorful fabric.

As in other Asian countries black is not beautiful :-)

All my ankle-length tights are winter wear, but I'm about to change
from my long-sleeved summer jersey to my short-sleeved fall jersey.

Just DuckDucked: there *is* a hijab store in Fort Wayne, quite close
to the big malls. If I ever figure out how to get to Fort Wayne, I'll
have to look into it.

Love today's Yehuda Moon (yehudamoon.com): two panels: 1) "I love
bad weather gear." 2) "I love how it looks hanging in my closet."

Just today I was admiring the brilliant yellow silkiness of the
windbreaker that has been hanging on a hook in the garage all summer.
Alas, it won't be long before I have to start carrying it everywhere.

I liked that :-) I always carry rain wear with me on any ride over a
few minutes. And hope not to have to use it :-)

Yesterday's grocery run:

The ride started with me saying "Come on, ride with me. There's only a
15% chance of rain. And the sun doesn't set for an hour."

The ride ended with both of us sprinting home through a downpour,
generator headlights supplementing the illumination of the lightning
flashes. It gets amazingly dark under a thunderhead.

Fortunately, the computer screen verified that there was only a 15%
chance the incident had actually happened. She forgave me.
