    Pesky insects!

    Am I the only one that these insects are attracted to? Do regular commuters on this forum face similar situations? What do you do? I've already been a victim 3 or 4 times: Eyes, mouth and nose. They seem to want to get in my way. While on a fast pace, this is very annoying. Remedies, Suggestions? Thanks.

    It's still too early in the year for me to have problems with bugs. Protecting your eyes is the easiest, glasses, nose and mouth a little harder, when I swallow a bug I just consider it a protien boost.

    take a route with less shade or that takes you away from water.
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    Not bicycling per say, but once I was riding my motorcycle up the Natchez Trace when wasp flew up the sleeve of my jacket, up the sleeve of my t-shirt, and bit me right between the shoulder blades while I was traveling at 50 mph. It's amazing how much pain you can endure when the possibility of still greater pain exists.

    You know all that money we spend on nuclear weapons and defense each year, trillions of dollars, correct? Instead -- just play with this -- if we spent that money feeding and clothing the poor of the world -- and it would pay for it many times over, not one human being excluded -- we can explore space together, both inner and outer, forever in peace. Thank you very much -- Bill Hicks
