Frozen snot rockets

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Frozen snot rockets

Do your snot rockets ever freeze on their way to the ground?

I ask this only of bona fide cyclists. Pretenders need not reply.

That's a good story, haven't read it in a long time (like high school 28 years ago). Figured then and now that's all I ever need to know about freezing to death.
