Hello fellow Clydes and Clydettes!
I am seeking your wisdom once again!
I have been experiencing a (probably common) issue lately. After a ride, I have a STRONG ammonia smell in my nose. Now, I have searched the intenet and there are MANY theories about what causes this. Everything from dehydration, to "that's what happens when you are stripping muscle for energy".
Does anyone have an actual answer as to why this happens?
I have tried over hydration (got dizzy! due to electrolyte imbalance, I think), eating more prior to and during the ride, etc...
Is this something I should worry about?
I noticed it the first time this year after about 3.5 hrs in the saddle going as hard as I could. So, tonight I just rode around, no particular milage in mind, just puttering around at about 12 - 13 MPH for 2 hrs and it still happened.
Any info would be appreciated.
