OT: Cycling 101

Here's a tip that I wish someone had passed along to me before today - When biking in the early spring as yellow jackets are emerging be sure to check your helmet for said yellow jackets BEFORE strapping it onto your head.
About 3 minutes into my ride today I noticed a strange pain on the crown of my head. Since, I knew I hadn't been in the sun long enough to get a sunburn through my helmet vents I pulled over to the side of the road and discovered the culprit in my helmet. As I said to my daughter, I ended the yellow jacket's short time on this earth quickly and hopefully painfully.

I guess it could have been worse -- I could have been struggling like these guys in the Giro d'Italia
