Just finishing my first 6 months of cycling, I have never cycled over the summer period before. In my last few rides, particualrly around the river areas, the bugs are starting to appear.

Today I ate one and had in insert itself into my ear!! I guess my slack jaw panting style may not be a winner over summer.:eek::eek::eek:

How do you guys deal with bugs??

I saw a few masked bandits out today, and another guy that seemed to have some kind of shield glued onto his top lip:warau: (No it wasn't a mo!)

Or is it that i should be thankful for the protein!:D

yeah, have noticed a lot of guys have handkerchiefs over their faces on the rivers. Not a bad idea.


The worst is getting some kind of big bug stuck in your helmet. You can't tell what it is, could just be a fly, but could be a bee! Have had a couple crazy emergency stops to wave the helmet around to get rid of them....

Leg covers - much less hassle than putting on suncream, and no unwelcome hangers-on...though you do seem to pick up the odd comments from the gallery!
