Here is an observation about riding on pavement--I am much more prone to getting stung/bitten. About two weeks ago, Chris and I were coming back from a little road jaunt. We were just a few blocks from our house on a descent when I saw it for a split second. Then it hit me in the neck. I ran into a bee. It got stuck there. It took a few moments to get to a stop and the bee was still buzzing in my neck. I pulled it out but it did not stop the pain. That lingered for a bit until I got a cold compress on it. The potential itch and swelling hung around for a week.

I will take bug incidences like these over vehicular-human incidents though.
