No, not as in that ride was "sick," or that was an "ill" trail ride, I mean under the weather physically distressed, sort of ill.
I have ridden with the flu, and a cold, headache, toothache, and fared okay. Tonight I have some sort of GI tract thing going on, and it is most uncomfortable, and the only way home is the bike, with snow falling, the weather should be okay, a low of 21, but it's the pedalling and the cramps, and well the distress with the worry that I may not make it home without an accident. I'm just glad I am not wearing bibs tonight. It would be a warm feeling for a short time. I am reminded of a sick joke about a hunter in a Carhart overall, and ... well, you get the idea...
So, what ailments have you found yourself having to survive on the commute?
