Midges!

7 posts in this topic

Anyone else had a case this bad? Late evening riding in the Peak District, every time I stopped for a second I was itching them away.. needless to say I only stayed for an hour as I couldn’t bare being there any longer! This is the morning after!!

I had similar after a visit to Bike Park Wales once. Not quite as bad as that, but not far off - itchy as hell, made worse by me scratching them to bits.

Jesus, that's pretty brutal.

Could ask Yankee Candles for a sponsorship deal? I hear Citronella is pretty much the best bet for keeping them off you.

Clearing up quite quickly thankfully! I have a video shoot with a new person tomorrow and didn’t want to put my tights back on, but it may be the case that I stil have to due to some markings that are stil visible! Don’t want to look like I have scabies! 

Should have got my self a pair of shin pads! Safe to say I’m getting some new style shin guards that should hopefully keep the Migies at bay in future too! At least in the lower leg area anyway! 

Stil itching though!

Deet....the strongest you can lay your hands on. You can get 100% deet from Go Outdoors. Its brutal stuff mind but midges won't go near you! 

PS....don't scratch your nuts after using it or midges will seem like a walk in the park!
