I take at least a week off when I've got a cold for exactly that reason, although I have asthma too which doesn't help when lungs are concerned.

I just got a cold 2 days ago. Sucks. I have the Vermont 50 this sunday to look forward too. So 50 miles almost 9000 feet of elevation, and two days of tropical storm rain to make the trails all mud. all w/ a cold. Should be fun. I'm just takig it easy and not riding the next 2 days, I did a 2 hour night ride yesterday as a test and felt fine after 15 minutes of pedaling. However this morning I felt like $hit.

But don't they use strange anglosised phrases for things like this, ie. Bronchitis = chesty cough, haematoma = bruise, coagulation = scab

In the TDF they stuff newspapers up there shirts to prevent a chill on fast descents 'to prevent bronchitis' AFAIK bronchitis is caused by viruses or bacteria

Well it's to late now, cars all loaded up now.
The cold is just in my nose, nothing on my chest at all. So i hope i will be alright.
If not then Tony will have to ride the rest on his own :lol:

Pickle, D2D should be flat in comparison to Cheddar, also i'm only going to be doing about 3 laps what with being in a team of 4 so should be fine.
