When you suck down a bug riding does it go in my guts or lungs ?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

When you suck down bugs, they probably go in your guts or lungs. When I suck down bugs, they go in my guts or lungs.

Nothing like riding through the nature preserve at dusk to get a mouthful of bugs.

I have INHALED a bug...coughed it right back out. I have swallowed more than a few with nary a problem. Worse than that, the yellow jacket getting caught in the helmet vent.

I've sucked down a few flying, but I've never seen a bug ride.
