We’ve all been there and experienced the relief and exhaustion that washes over us after a good riding session. Kicking off our cleats, our bodies begin to uncontrollably shut down into recovery mode, and that often means falling into the nearest and softest location for a rest.
Before you get comfy though, you should really get changed out of your riding kit, and here’s why…
Conjunctivitis – a.k.a pinkeye – is a very common bacterial infection which causes irritation, redness and inflammation of the outer most white layer of the eye, and eyelid.
Most children suffer with spells of conjunctivitis as dirty hands spread bacteria, especially with rubbing tired eyes. When you workout, you produce sweat and when you ride bikes or train at the gym, there’s a lot more external germs and bacteria that you can come into contact with.
