For some strange reason the guys all grabbed their old cyclechinos jerseys for the Saturday coffee ride. I got nostalgic by having a good old low speed crash with another cyclist and landing hard on my shoulder. Not a bad bingle (I laughed my head off and some grumpy old guy in his yard thought we were nuts) but the shoulder feels a bit sore and stiff today.
Where I promptly got stung on the lip by a wasp who was put out by all the activity. My body doesn't react all that well to Aussie wasps, but I just get a big swelling, no other symptoms.
Saved by my favorite Knight in shining VW Van, I abandoned
The swelling has evened out on my lip, but the side of my face is now massive. It will go down over the next couple of days, I have been through this before. Usually it is a high speed collision on the bikeway that gets me stung. I think this may be the first time I have ever seen a paper wasp when I was holding still.
