  • Fly swallowing prevention ideas please!!

    My commute into work is pretty rural and takes me past alot of fields that have just been cut etc and as such there are shit loads of flys around.

    This morning whilst riding into work I got smacked in the back of the throat right on the dsngly bit by a massive fly which made me chuck up all over my bike !! :mrgreen:

    So I need some ideas on how to prevent it happening again !

    Please dont say close your mouth!

    That’s free protein right there. Keep it down next time.

    Perhaps some minor surgery like this?

    You need to practice your gag reflex.

    But seriously, if they get past your defences just swallow the bastards.

    Well, an Australian accent is a cockney one but with your teeth clenched to keep the flies out (try it, it’s true) so if you don’t mind sounding a bit ‘strine then clench your teeth.

    Swallowed a butterfly on a commute a couple of years ago.

    That wasnt too nice.

    Swallow them quickly, very quickly indeed. Then drink lots of water to drown them before they sting on the way down (wasps)

    Swallow a spider to catch the fly.

    I don’t know why you’d swallow a fly.

    Perhaps you’ll die?

    Why not? Surely that’s the easiest, best and cheapest solution?

    Pedal faster until you’re blowing out your arse? 😆

    A buff? But will be quite hot in the summer! Failing that, closing your mouth is the best option!! Or cling film
