|Why is this picture a sick ride? I was sick. I was riding. QED.|
I know it doesn't feel particularly comfortable in the breathing area. I'm not saying it was hard to breathe, that would be foolish to continue riding, just that the change in breathing mechanics makes it uncomfortable. But, anyway, I haven't seen any studies that found that you get sicker if you continue your nice medium speed commute rides, and other than the slight discomfort from altered breathing mechanics, the ride overall still makes me feel better. Sunshine. Fresh air. Motion. Outdoors. A sick ride.
The ride did make me want to ask what-if this question: if you had a cold, and your nose was 100% stuffed up and swollen shut, and you sneezed really hard anyway, could your head actually explode? I've known people who've cracked ribs while sneezing, so, could it? Sometimes it feels like that.
Dude, that's a sick ride. Thanks. Do you ride sick? Or is it a bad idea?
