Next time I go cycling I might have to wear a cork hat over my helmet.
Today, for the first time in almost one month of cycling in Australia, I got bothered by flies.
They tried to get up my nose, climb into the corners of my eyes and fly down my throat. Yewww.
I spent half of today's cycle trying to shoo them away. This meant I spent the first 8km cycling one-handed.
Fortunately, on the reverse journey, there was a head wind which kept the pesky blighters away. But tomorrow, when I get back on the bike, I'll be making sure I cover myself in insect repellent. Unless, of course, anyone knows where I can buy a cork bicycle helmet!
Funnily enough I never seem to have this problem when cycling in London…
