    Chesty cough, flem etc. Do you wait till recovery or do you go ride your bike regardless?

    Use the neck rule – if all symptoms above the neck go ahead and ride, otherwise recover.

    If a chesty cough then rest.

    I developed pleurisy once from doing a hard ride with a chesty cough. Coughing up blood and everything!

    Go out regardless, or even especially. Usually clears me tubes, and always makes me feel better. Unless it’s proper flu with a fever and aches, then it’s time to get out the whisky bottle

    since giving myself a proper chest infection after ignoring a chesty cough and pushing on, i tend to rest now.

    Cough and plegm isn’t really man flu. Sounds like a cold.

    Proper flu will have you in bed for 5 days.

    Man flu is bad… you won’t think of even going for a ride. You’ll feel bad, but it’s not flu.

    I did a running race 2 weekends ago, on similar symptoms. Took it easy.

    The week after the cold got worse, only just starting to get over it now.

    Have a bit of a walk (dogs are useful for this).

    If you feel like death warmed up afterwards, leave the riding for a bit.

    Excersizing when you have a cold / manflu is not a good idea. Stay home.
