An ozone alert, skin cancer, and sun sleeves

Skin cancer is a thing for people (such as cyclists) who spend a lot of time outdoors. But first, allow me the opportunity to inform you that the second San Francisco Bay Area Spare the Air Alert of 2015 has been announced for Wednesday, July 29, 2015.

A decade of Cyclelicious

Ten years ago tomorrow, Cyclelicious was born with a post gushing over Lance Armstrong’s seventh consecutive Tour de France win. I’m so embarrassed.

As you can see from my screenshot of this site from November of that year, my web design skills have advanced approximately nil over that time span. That embarrasses me, too.
