OMG.... it hurts so much. It happened at somewhere from UBC highway to spanish banks when a bee got into my loosely strapped sleeve and stung me, violently. The sharp pain was instantaneous and the aftermath is severe; my forearm is still swollen, like it was hit with a baseball bat. I think I am having allergic reaction. I did not know what it was at first, so I kept riding until an itchy sensation came on! Boy, was that ever itchy. By the time I pulled over at the parking lot at the beach, the bee had made its way from my jacket into my beater. The end of its thorex was missing and was never found. I flicked it on the ground, stomp on it a few times and rode over it on my bike to put it out of its mystery.
Lesson here to learn!
1. Make sure all straps are tight and zippers are closed.
2. When you feel an itch, pull over!
