If you’re a winter cyclist let’s talk about a crucial skill that isn’t taught enough: the snot rocket. You need to stop biking, put one foot down, lean well away from yourself and your bike, and hold the well behaved nostril shut with your finger. Then with a furious burst of air you exhale through the plugged nostil and clear the sinus. If everything has gone to plan you’re set to keep biking. Maybe you’ll have to sully your glove with a quick wipe.

The alternative? Sniffling every 3 seconds while you’re pedaling.
