Perfect Face Sunscreen - Ombrelle Face 60 SPF Stick

I think I may have found the perfect bike riding/running/swimming sunscreen for the face.

Ombrelle Face 60 SPF Stick comes in a tube about twice the size of a tube of lipstick or chapstick. Small enough to put in a Fuel Belt pocket or cycling jersey pocket.

It goes on a bit white but when you rub it in, it is invisible. It is not greasy and has a very dry finish.

The only draw back is the $17.99 price. However, I would buy it again even with the high price.

Happy Training!

It doesn't seem to sting at all.

We set aside one afternoon to head out to the shop.  Not having rented a car, we studied the train routes and schedules and determined it was about 30 mins outside of Barcelona in El Prat del Llobergat.  

After missing our first train by about 2 minutes, we had to wait another 30 minutes for the next train.  This was the first of our missed connections and confusion for this journey.  Once we arrived at the train station closest to the shop, we still had about a 20 minute walk to the shop.  It is an industrial area so there were no taxis to be found.  The whole time we were travelling to the shop, I was secretly worried tha…


In early February, I bought a season's pass to Grouse Mountain.  I have owned a pass in the past but not in for a few years.  My main goal was to get up on Monday and/or Wednesday nights for the Social Snowshoe.  90 minutes snowshoeing up the Snowshoe Grind and over the back side of Dam Mountain.  Headlamps required.

Yes, these are terrible photos.  I only took photos this one time.  I realized that the iPhone will not take good photos in these conditions and you miss the actual moment trying to get a good photo.
In addition to Grouse, I have been up to Cypress Mountain Nordic area two times this season
