One problem with bicycle commuting is that we have these little teeny tiny bugs that fly in little swarms in random places. They're too small to see until I ride through the swarm with my mouth open and get a bit of protein along the way. I've gotten sort of used to that as it happens once or twice each way. Today on the way home I got a little bigger meal. I didn't see what it was, but my first thought was, "God, I hope that wasn't a fly fresh off some dog's steaming pile."

Yea, that's pretty much all I got.

Maybe you need to get one of those "outer space face masks"? I've seen some of the riders around here using them - but for the cold not the protein :)

I thought about some sort of face shield, but it'd just make me sweat more. It's been over 80 the last two days and humid, so "winter" isn't giving me much of a break from the heat.
