I know I am slow, but do insects really have to make fun of me too??
I was riding today in the great Texas heat and headwinds. When on the last bit before the end, a few flying beetle like thingees started fliting around me. One in particular was by my front wheel and he buzzed up by my face (probably trying to get my attention). It then went from buzzing my face to going in and out of my front wheel a couple of times. I ride a 36-spoked wheelset so I KNOW this bug was showing me how fast it was and how slow I was.
I don't need that kind of ridicule, so I packed it in after that, and 3 hours in the heat of the day. Darn bugs, I have to find a new route now--I don't do well with bullies!
