Every time I go out on my bike my nose runs un-controllably, its not exactly cold (around 6 – 10 degrees for most of my rides). Does any one else suffer from this, are there any suggestions / tips to prevent it?

Yes it happens to me, it's just the wind!

And loo roll!!

Or the sleeve of your cycling jersey!

a good snort out of each individual nostril with quick flick of head over shoulder (s'long as you've nobody else riding behind you) (if it's snortable)

grab schnoz with 2 fingers, blow, pull and flick - but be careful with the flicking!!!

the nostril blow

i usually manage to get my legs a few times though

er indoors hasn't yet noticed that i've been using the same solution when using the turbo trainer in the conservatory, but i expect to find myself in hot water when she does

I carry a pack of kleenex on the tri bars and put the used tissues in my pockets, just like what mummy said I should!

that's my boy.

I'm afraid I do the nostril blow...always the left one though! Sometimes I'm too puffed to get enough power in the snort and it's a very messy job I can tell you...trying to get it off my cheek!

Does anyone recall Paula at the Sydney olympics with all that really sticky stuff on her arm and shoulder? I think it was her own spit...hope it was her own - yuk ;)

(Dr Nic wanders in innocently)

Oh MM! *grimace*

I can never do the nostril thing, just can't work out how to do it!

Not that I'd want to, of course.

Dr Nic...think tumble turn! Hold one shut and blow hard down the other - easy and very efficient...I just don't do it in company! Could be embarrassing ;)

In fact it only goes pear shaped when I forget to just blow out my nose and grunt at the same time - not enough force and hence a right mess....
