What suncream for cycling?
P20 works very. But if you haven’t used it before do a small test patch a few times. The active ingredient is called PABA (Para-Aminobenzoic Acid). A lot of users can have allergic reactions, itching, burning, dermatitis. I had a full on anaphylactic shock.
Something similar but PABA free, ALOE GATORPosted 4 years agobruneepSubscriber
Piz Buin spf 30 all day
Its half price at boots online
The P20 stained a lot of my clothes and towelsPosted 4 years agoaPMember
P20 used to stain clothing quite badly, but they’ve changed it now so it doesn’t.Posted 4 years ago
Having bought some recently to take to the Dolomites next week, it would appear that there’ll be another 40cm of snow on the Stelvio, and a wind chill factor of -20C. So I’m taking full winter riding clothes. 😥chiefgrooveguruMember
End this thread! do you know what a thread like this can do??? It’s only May and there’s still everything to play for. Acceptable thread titles are What Mud Tyres? Best Waterproofs? Seen seal skinz cheap recently?
Only last night I informed my wife of my second front wheel plan, to have a wet/mud tyre always ready to swap onto my bike when it’s soggy – and that it would be prudent to buy it now rather than in the autumn so we have a gloriously dry summer…Posted 4 years agojonbaMember
I still find it amazing that a load of UV light can come from the sun, take 8 minutes – at the speed of light – to get to your skin only to be defeated by a bit of cream out of a bottle!!
Fair comment, especially as in many cases the cream is invisible to the naked eye (although, I guess it wouldn’t be to an insect…)

Boots Active *was* good – but I replaced yesterday with their SPF 50 Active Fatstick, supposed to be sweat proof, but it just ran off my face today which is now a bit burnt 👿 I don’t recommend it anymore as I have in the past. Need something for face only which won’t sweat off! Don’t like the sound of P20, may try the kids waterproof SPF 50 as per above.Posted 4 years agoTiRedMember
I have long been a fan of the Ambre Solaire sprays. Started on factor 10 years ago and now use factor 30. Non-greasy (unlike Nivea) and doesn’t seem to stain clothes as much as P20. Oh and I wear a long-sleeved white club jersey, or white compression top under my short-sleeved jersey.
Being very fair skinned, red hair and more frekkles than you’ve ever seen, I’m trying to avoid the family melanoma roulette! Cyclists tan lines – bwahahahahaha!Posted 4 years ago
Still if vitamin D is a perfomance enhancing drug, I’m in.garage-dwellerSubscriber

Still got asked if i had used fake tan after my recent welsh holiday!!!
I have been in direct sun for 5hpurs+ today and not a hint of pink.
I use ambre solaire spf30 for less intense sunshine.
Had two black moles cut out in my life. Both thankfully benign on investigation. Better pasty than dead.
