Are you a sensitive group?

I am an individual. Prolly not a good idea to be exerting one's self in the heat of the day. Acclimated or not it still feels like breathing through a wet towel.

In other news, I am going to cut my hair today. Lubed my chain yesterday and replaced a slow leaking tube in my front tire. Got an oil change and changed the air filter on the wife's car yesterday.

Need to get lawnmower gas and will fill up the wife's car while I am at it. Going to try and avoid a nap if possible.

I may need to revisit the head sweats thing I've been wearing. It's not cutting it (though I'm unsure if anything will).

Oddly the sweat problem is much worse in my right eye. So I end up riding along squinting through one eye. It's a mess.

Try a Halo headband. Do it now and thank me later.

A few years ago I had Shingles in my right eye. Now I have lots of floaters in that eye and sweat, sunscreen, or even soapy water just burns like hell in that eye only.
When it gets bad on a ride it seems to help some to rinse it out with the water bottle.

I think the water referred to in that song was Lake Geneva?

I don't think it's sensitivity but rather asymmetric sweat flow. wut

Slim, or regular?

I use the regular.

Before the Halo, on hot humid rides I would often have stinging sweat in my eyes. The Halo solved it for me. I know some BF posters have said it does not work for them (maybe their sweat output is too high) and if that happens Plan B is the Sweat Gutr. But the Gutr has a hard piece of plastic as a channel which I suspect is uncomfortable, while the Halo uses soft comfortable silicone.

Hannah came for a lunch visit bearing sofritas! :bday:

I used a bandana the other day. It worked well but my head felt really hot. Does the halo help keep your head cool as well as absorb your sweats?

I don't think so. The Halo is for people who get sweat in their eyes. In your case the bandana may be adequate.

I performed at Montreux, BITD. We did not burn the place to the ground.

The canal does not go thru Cazenovistan. Pay attention.

All this Halo talk got me thinking like

Of course, that's what I feel like riding around in my Giro Vanquish.

Thanks! I also have a sweat cap thing I got from performance bike years ago and helps most of the time, but I sweat a lot and it only becomes a problem when it gets to contact lenses, which takes longer to clear out so Iím considering other options as well..

You need a HUD in the vanquish.

of course the vanquish would have been MUCH better if it was the Aston Martin kind...

That'd get you the last spot on the podium at this point.
