and inhaling them is even better. Having finally returned my a** to the saddle, I'm being reminded of some of the "not so fun" aspects of the sport. Prior to getting pregnant last year, I was riding 99% of the time in the mornings and early afternoons. Now, evenings are the only time I get to ride. I had actually forgotten about the swarm fests in the early evenings.

I sucked a bee up my nose last summer. A bee sting inside the nose hurts like crazy. I'd sooner eat a handful of gnats any day.
Even worse.You could be the gnats.PEDDLEFOOT

Years ago, when I had a motorcycle, a motorist ahead of me clobbered a bunny; turning him into a cloud of blood droplets and brown fur. When I got to where I was going, there were little red specks all over my jacket.

Or, the gnats stuck to my forehead, above my glasses but below my helmet? that is funny.

Worst, was a dragonfly square in the forehead, almost knocked me off my bike! Thank goodness we don't have mosquitos of the size that Ringo Starr had to deal with in the movie 'Caveman'.
Yeah, what's up with that...filtersweep

Ever had a p!ssed off bumblebee in your bra? That sure taught me to zip up my jersey before a fast descent! Even worse, bumblebees can sting multiple times and are HARD to squish!

the guys thought I had lost my mind when I dove off the road and started shucking my jersey...

I had one in my pants once (not bike shorts). I was doing some landscaping for a neighbor and it flew up my pant leg. Good thing I listened to my mom and wore undies with no holes.
Did you hear the one about the female golfer?Lone Gunman

I was coming down a 10-mile, windy descent in the mountains a few weeks ago and felt something funny on my arm. It was a bee stinging the hell out of me for no good reason. Apparently I was stung by two of them because I had two big welts that didn't go away for about two weeks.
