Eight Reasons Why Cyclists Should Purse Their Lips While Riding the Lake Shore Trail at High Speeds

#1 - Ack! Panic. Cough Cough.

#2 - Pull over to side of path in awkward, child-frightening zig-zag.

#3 - Gag. Gag. Gag.

#4 - Cough again, hard.

#5 - Pour water into mouth, let drip to back of throat, tilt head forward and cough hard again.

#6 - Expel part of a hard insect shell from mouth.

#7 - Wonder where the rest of the insect is, and whether ingesting it will be harmful.

#8 - Continue on bike ride.
