    oh yeah, I forgot to mention,

    I forgot to tell you in my report of yesterdays ride, I swallowed my first bug, yuck!!! I don't know what kind and I don't really care thankfully it was real small! Must remember to keep mouth closed while riding!

    It's just extra protein, and you don't have any trash to throw away!
    If at first you don't succeed, Skydiving is not the sport for you!

    That's the hardest thing for me about evening riding. My HR is usually right about 150 as I'm riding and I need to be sucking down some O2 to keep going. Breathing through your nose just doesn't cut it for me.

    I take the bugs as an impromptu protein snack

    It's funny, if it wasn't for my bad shin splints, I can run for a REALLY long time once my breathing gets in stride with my running. Biking is different. Gotta learn how to breath better

    Some rides on the river trails here can be bad with bugs. Have brought bandana to cover my mouth....

    the worst are the ones that sting you. Had one of those on the lip the other day, at 28mph on a road bike. I managed to survive, but had a very swollen lip for a couple of days.

    My aunt had a wasp go into her helmet and sting her scalp. She said the sting was worse from the scrapes from the crash....

    It makes me appreciate winter cycling. About 4 months of bug free weather a year up here by the Arctic circle.
