This was a great read. Thanks for sharing.

By now I've probably swallowed a pound of gnats (they have no taste) and a dozen or so larger bugs. A little extra protein never hurt anyone!


Congratulations on your biking success! You are a motivation to all to get their butts in gear!

Michael Roy

You go girl!


Rock on, Cheryl. Very glad to hear that you're keeping at it.

Your story makes me wonder, though, whether us regular commuters should do a better job of offering to "lead out" prospective commuters on their early efforts. I suspect Wisconsin would have been a lot less scary with someone in front of you.


Congratulations on losing 40 pounds! Perhaps this idea is obvious, but I keep a hand over my mouth when going through buggy areas or at a faster clip downhill. At least winter cycling features fewer people and bugs.

I once had a bee sting my tongue (not as bad as it might sound).
