Well I'm an all season commuter.....but the bugs this year have been a pain...
on my ride home tonight I managed to get a daddy-long legs in my mouth....!!!
and I can still feel it..!! Yuk
Rule #5.......Just crunch and swallow with a little juice or whatever is in your bottle
I got a fly in my ear and was almost distracted enough to crash...
Come to the north east, its been cold and wet all summer, no chance of swallowing flies up here they have all migrated for the summer.
I've heard that a significant number of flying insects are water breeders so wet summer - more puddles mean more bugs in the air and thus in your mouth.
Another observation: Bumble bees really hurt when your doing 40mph!
