  1. Avid cyclist but also serial skin cancer survivor. I use a brim mounted to my helmet made be Da Brim company. I use Coolibar sports long sleeve shirts that are UPF 50 rated. I also use Coolibar sports pants also rated to UPF 50. I wear Leather hardware store work gloves to keep my hands and wrists out of the sun. I don’t use sunscreen for much of anything. As far as pants and long sleeve shirts the pants do feel like they are a little hotter than shorts while riding bicycle. The long sleeve sports shirts may actually be a little cooler than short sleeve shirts. Your advice on hydration is excellent. The last two years have been really hot here in California and I’m going to mount a couple of old school handlebar water bottle mounts to bring my total to 4 carried bottles.
