Yesterday was the second time I have picked up a hitchhiking bee while riding. The first time one got stuck in my neck gator and zapped me a few times. Yesterday I went out at lunch for a run through the canyons and I picked up one who went right down my neck into the left shoulder of my race suit. I was able to pull off a minute or so later and free him but not before he got me once on my neck then four times on the back of my left shoulder under my leathers.
Does anyone else attract bees? I'm not allergic, fortunately, and I like bees (or honey anyway)... I certainly mean them no harm. What gives?? Why can't bees and riders come to some agreement in this matter? Is there some sort of longer neck gator I could wear that comes down over the collar of my race suit that may help prevent this?

Maybe you would want to switch to this kind of racing suit?

This is a good as time as any to remind riders: don't ride buzzed.
