    Default There needs to be a moratorium placed on blowing snot-rockets.

    In the last two weeks I've come up behind people blowing their nose on very public paths during rush hour... the last time I almost said something rude to the guy. I realize it's just natural to do, and I almost did it yesterday, but I caught myself. Anyway, just passing on a PSA.

    Best wishes on spreading the PSA.
    Every little bit helps, at this point.

    Roadies need to use a Rodeo bandanna...

    Concur. My idiot riding buddy is constantly spitting (still). My protestations have taken on a special brand of vigor as of late.

    I've caught myself several times immediately prior to spitting. New normal: no spit, no snot rockets.

    That bandanna is pretty sweet.

    Most people wait for the muse to turn up. That's terribly unreliable. I have to sit down and pursue the muse by attempting to work.

    Firstly by paying attention. I was amazed how sub-conscious it is.

    As for riding, the semi-regular pig snort (as my daughter would say) and the understanding that if I were riding with a friend (i'm not), particularly a competitive friend I may get dropped while I choose to ride below my snotrocket threshold.

    I have a friend who considers snotrockets to be unlady-like and rides with a hanky in her jersey pocket at all times.

    I think all can guess why I got nicknamed such.

    Fun fact: when I stopped racing, I started riding gloveless. I'm now using summer gloves again, so I'll have something to wipe my snot on. Can't wait to ride gloveless again.

    Ah funny, I don't know of a single woman cyclist that do not do it, including my mom. I've never been annoyed by that as long as people follow the proper etiquette being getting out of a pace line and making sure there is nobody directly behind them.

    Yeah, I keep telling her there’s nothing less lady like than stuffing a snotty hanky back in your jersey pocket but it appears we’ve agreed to disagree!

    Agreed. In the best of times it is important to not to blow snot or spit on our riding friends.
    It is absolutely crucial now to embrace the strictest good health practices to boost wellness.
