Re: [RC] Clothing used for hot, sunny desert riding, love to hear from non-USA riders too. - Chris Paus

go to Cabela's online. they have very nice, cool, long sleeve shirts that are vented and they are UV resistant, so they protect you from the sun.

In So Cal I used to ride in a white long sleeved men's
dress shirt (took ones my husband was throwing away).
The collar keeps the sun off your neck & the fabric is
stiff enough to stand away from the body rather than
clinging (especially as my husband is literally about
twice my size).

I always ride in gloves. I like the cheapy stretch
ones. They're thin & wear out every couple months,
but are cheap enough that I consider them disposable.
