Well just returned from a long weekend touring around Exmoor. Not really mountainbiking, but taking the tourers off-road wherever we saw fit. Anyhow, I've ended up pretty well caked in ticks which I've been pulling out for the last couple of days. It's not really a revalation, but I suppose I mainly associated the problem with rambling rather than getting them in the saddle. Just wondered how people manage the situation? Cover up all flesh? cake themselves in repellent? (which tends to eat technical fabrics). Or ignore and just keep pulling them out?
