    When you blow, you suck.

    I don't care what mile you're on. I don't care what team you ride for. I don't care how much your bike doesn't weigh, or what depilatory you use.

    Please -- please! -- look over your shoulder before you blow a snotrocket.

    There should also be a mandatory advisory for mobile gas discharge, identifiable by the source of said gas:
    "Cabbage!"
    "Cauliflower!"
    "Burrito!"
    "VINDALOO!!!!!!"

    LMAO!!!

    I know a guy who got "snot rocketed" by a complete stranger on a mtn bike ride. When the offending person faltered and fell, my buddy "accidently" ran him over a little bit (really just scared the daylights out of him with a near miss at a VERY low speed - you could walk faster).

    Heh, and on another ride, a buddy of mine nailed me with one a bit (he more or less missed), so in return, i shouldered him into a tree, but just a little bit. We all had a good laugh and kept on riding....

    Funniest thread in a while. Y'all made me almost blow a Gatorade snot-rocket. Thank God I'd just swallowed my drink when I read this.

    Tip #3 looks good
    3 tips to clearing your blowhole without smearing your friends

    Group Snot-Blowing Etiquette
    3 tips to clearing your blowhole without smearing your friends
    By Bill Strickland, Executive Editor


    1. Mid-Pack Void As long as you're on the left edge of the pack (see "Gang Up," above), and the group decorum allows it, signal with a left-pointing finger, then swing out of the paceline, blow to the left and resume your position.

    2. Back-of-the-Pack SHOOT If you've just finished a pull and are drifting back, you can rocket your nasal effluvia with abandon.

    3. Everywhere-Else BLOW Rather than hurl snot over your shoulder, shoot it down between your bent arm and thigh. At speeds above 25 mph, or on windy days when the discharge is more likely to kite and plaster the riders behind you, try slipping it between your pumping thigh and the top tube. You'll likely splatter your quad but, at least in terms of etiquette, better you than the rider behind you.

    I'm a massage therapist and thus am quite used to people farting...bit wet ones...right in my face.

    But a snotrocket in your face...

    Please tell me your mouth wasn't open.

    Eeeew!

    People here spit all the time when riding. I guess spitting is better than snot rockets, since the sound of a spitter horking up gives you the split second's warning you need to swerve into oncoming traffic to avoid it. However, it takes practice to attune oneself to the horking sound, and the learning curve is steep and slippery.

    I did a bit of searching around and found some breathing exercises that is supposed to improve pedaling efficiency. No mention of "rockets" though.

    Any commuters out there use breathing exercises to reduce rockets and improve speed?
