All the economics and cycling you could want.

No more red face for me after long, brisk winter rides. There always seems to be a strong headwind on the descents that turns my face into a windburned mess. One solution, so I’ve been told by Brika, is Vaseline. Gross. I don’t want to ride around looking like a porn star after finishing off an award winning scene. No, I needed something like a balaclava that would cover my face. But even a conventional balaclava has huge drawbacks. I can’t easily take the damn thing off when I’m climbing or when it gets too hot out later on in the day, and then easily put it back on again for the headwind sections and fast descents. There’s no versatility. With the balaclava, it’s all or nothing. Hmmmm… that got me thinking. I remembered seeing pics of a certain doper sporting a multi-purpose face and neck warmer thing. After some googling, I finally found what I was looking for. A 3 in 1 solution: face, neck, head.

Let’s just say, it won’t be the clenbuterol that keeps my face my cracking this year…
