    Flying buzzards

    While riding this weekend I felt like a piece of dung due to all these bastards infesting my face like its a buffet. I had a good dose of protein after the ride.
    I read online that they particularly like rotten food\waste. Guess I need to take a shower before a ride.

    I was thinking of purchasing one of these but can you breathe through em?


    What do you guys normally use to repel these flying buzzard?. I guess I can also strap a mosquito glue tape on my helmet.

    I tend to ride with my mouth as wide open as I can. It's fun to spit out everything I catch in it after a good ride and look at it under the microscope...

    Buzzard is slang for vulture and some hawk species. Think you mean gnats? Sounds a bit weird that huge ass birds would be flying into your face.

    Your funny... I know the term "Buzzard" I watch enough National Geographic. I just used that as an analogy because they kept hovering over me like I'm a dying animal. Granted it feels like it sometimes when I'm climbing and heart rate is up.

    I actually seen a few people with these riding up trails. And its easily foldable and put away in their pack when they descend. Looks silly but I imagine it works
