INTRO - My girlfriend and I are doing a shakedown cycle tour in prep for our impending two-year bike tour from Vietnam to Mexico [via SE Asia, China, Kazakhstan, Europe, Quebec, and the US] starting in Feb next year.
At the moment we're heading south down the east coast of Australia (from Cairns to Sydney ) and damn the sun is relentless...
Anyway, since I really like my funky new bike helmet but it provides no shade for my face or neck, I've adapted an eleven dollar white canvas cricket hat to the task.
