    Please don't do it and if you really need to, first check that there isn't another cyclist or walker right behind you.

    I got a face full of flem on my commute in this morning :sad:

    There is no need to spit. I never do.

    Spitting is horrible and shouldn't be done. I've never felt the need.

    However, also don't be so close behind another cyclist, if it's me I do blow my nose a lot.......

    After the incident I did overtake him so it couldn't happen again.

    Did it require a trip to hos-spittle?
    Seriously though, gross.

    Not heard of tissues? :smile: A snot rocket is no less repulsive than spitting for me

    I have. Have you seen one when it's been in a sweaty pocket for a while. Plus if I stopped every time I needed to clear my nose I wouldn't get to work till lunchtime.

    Not a valid excuse I'm afraid. Do you spit for the same reason? You could just swallow.

    Ah if you read above I don't spit. I can't my nose upwards as efficiently I'm afraid
