Halo II Sweatband – Required TransAm Gear

Locate on Amazon
I noticed a quick article on Cool Tools today about the Halo II Sweatband pictured here.  I used this one on my trip across the country last year after buying one from River City Bicycles here in Portland.  This product makes all the difference in keeping sweat out of your eyes on long trips, the extra yellow strip makes all the difference.  I won’t go back to another type of band, and now that it is finally sunny in Portland, I am getting mine out today.

Great reminder Jason Long on Cool Tools.

Can Exercise Keep Me Young

Well it did wonders for the mice in this study according to the NYTimes.

But shiny fur was the least of its benefits. Indeed, in heartening new research published last week in The Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, exercise reduced or eliminated almost every detrimental effect of aging in mice that had been genetically programmed to grow old at an accelerated pace.
