Take Two Wheels and Call Me In The Morning

Do you suffer from severe seasonal allergies like I do?

I hate Spring! Basically as soon as January ends, my allergies start to hit and lasts until June! No amount of over the counter meds like Claritin and Sudafed undoes my nasal congestion, watery/itchy eyes, and sneezing. I can’t even sleep right at night because my nose is so plugged up. I can’t enjoy my meals because I can’t breathe and when you can’t breath you can’t taste.

The only thing that seems to actually help my allergies is a bicycle. I swear, riding my bike has been the best allergy relief in the world! As soon as I start pedaling, my congestion starts to loosen up, mucus starts to flow and I’m breathing through my nose again!

Only problem is, after I stop riding my bike, it only takes 10 minutes for me to get congested again. Man I only wish I could keep riding my bike while I sleep….

    I have noticed the same effect myself. I have been told that it is the adrenalin produced during excercise that counteracts the histamine reaction of the allergies – sounds plausible, anyway. It does make me look forward to riding all the more, for sure.
