The background story is interesting.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wear_Sunscreen

In 1998 I rode from Preston to Hull to catch a ferry to ride to Brussels for a Magritte exhibition. The weather had been very cloudy until the day I rode, which would have been the longest day. I didn't have any sunscreen, so I was burnt on the right side of my body, and the inside of my left knee, which was a bit surreal.

The film features Chris Hopkinson at the Mersey Roads 24 in a solar protection suit that he'd worn in RAAM, that was also a bit surreal, as was the Spiderman outfit worn by Byron Buck's helper.
