Just seen this come up on another thread and I'm curious - who thinks it's acceptable to spit (or snot rocket) whilst out in public cycling?
I'll lay down my cards first.
Nothing wrong with it, providing you aren't being stupid. Personally, I find that sometimes, when out on a cycle I'm left with little choice - either spit and clear my throat/mouth of gunk - or swallow it and probably choke to death.
Obviously, I would avoid doing this on the high street of a quaint country village, but I see nothing wrong with departing with it into an unassuming hedge, away from built up areas.
I would also argue that what comes out the back of cars is far, far more disgusting and polluting than what comes out during a snot rocket (though neither is particularly pleasant!).
- Please don't take this too seriously, it's meant to be a bit of fun
