*BIKE SKIRT HAS MOVED. OUR NEW LOCATION IS WWW.BIKESKIRT.COM. SEE YOU OVER THERE!
I cross two rivers on my commute. In early June I'm guaranteed to ingest a little extra protein on my way to work.
I carry a bandanna with me, particularly if I'm riding around water at night. There are some places that you can't take a breath without sucking in bugs.You just have to remember to take it off before you walk into a convenience store.
Ick, that's never fun. I need to buy sunglasses now that you mention this.
Oh geez, I can't decide which is worse! Bug in the eye or bug in your teeth??
I ride at dusk, sometimes, on the Mississippi River levee bike path in New Orleans. That's when the bugs come out. By the time I make it home, I'm brushing their remains out of my decolletage!
I was on a fast descent one night when I saw the mother of all bugs heading right toward me. It's funny how your eye can focus on something like that with everything whizzing by so fast.It wasn't a moth or something with big wingspread. It was some kind of hard-shelled beetle.He must have seen me about the same time I saw him, because he did a last-second deployment of whatever bugs use as air brakes, but it was no good.I felt him bounce off the back of my throat.I have no idea where he went after that. I don't think he bounced out; I didn't spit him out; I didn't chew him up.When I got home, I checked my shorts. That sucker was moving so hard and so fast, I thought he might have made it all the way through.
pbbt - hahaha oh god that's hilariously terrible!!!
I wear sunglasses or clear shades in bug season. I'm allergic to bees, and the other summer, when I WASN'T wearing my shades, a bee hit me right on my eyelid and stung me! OUCH!! Had to go to the hospital for treatment. :/ So any kind of eyewear really is important, for ANY kind of flying object! :)
something on your mind?
