is there a common courtesy or health standard about swimming in a pool when you have road rash. wouldn't the chlorine burn? I want to get back in the water just as fast as the next guy to keep training but don't want to break some unspoken rule or look like a gross guy for swimming with road rash.
thanks
yes; no open sores.Steve_0

...and it's usually more than unspoken; most pools (that i've been to) have it written, if not posted.

I guess if you're scabbed over, they're technically not 'open'. Still pretty gross to the non-cyclist, though.

I'd hit the ocean/bay/lake for awhile.
