Getting chased by flies?
On recent rides I seem to have been attracting flies like a big steamy poo. I’ve noticed that some other riders also attract swarms whilst others don’t.
I’ve been assure independently assured that I don’t smell like poo, horses or any other farmyard animal. I’ve tried showering with soap, I’ve tried showering without soap, but it doesn’t seem to make a difference.
Obviously going faster would be helpful, but I already go as fast as my wee legs will take me 🙂
Anyone know what it is that attracts them, or how to repel them?Posted 4 years agoOscillate WildlyMember
i had this for the first time last night – i forgot to wash my jersey from last sweaty ride 😆
so that wont have helped i guess, but more importantly i forgot to put my smidge repellant spray on last night and low and behold every climb i had a swarm around me, pretty annoying actually!
so no idea if smidge also acts as fly repellant too but i certainly will spray my arms and face again before heading out next timePosted 4 years ago
