...'cos today on my 90km ride I got a wasp fly inside my helmet and buzz around in a frenzy....I had to suddenly pull up and get it out at the side of the road (the wasp...the wasp...). I am sure my long hair prevented several stings.

Whilst trying to deal with that he skidded on a damp path that we were on near Newcastle at the time and crashed into a bed of stinging nettles head first. He was not amused. He had nettle rash all around his face and a great lump on his balding head where the Bee got him. I couldn't help but laugh, he didn't see the funny side for quite a while.
