I've ridden for years, the last 10 or so I've been getting motion sickness when I ride. Not always, maybe one out of five or six rides. It is really no fun!! When it happens all I can do is lay on the side of the trail for a couple hours till it passes. When I'm on a ride that I can't afford to get sick at (out of my area or with a large group or an important race) I take medication (bonine) . This seems to work, but it says on the lable note to operate machinery while taking it. When I do take it , it seems to lower my level of spunk. It also leaves me totally and I mean totally wiped out at the end of the day!! But the medication does seem to work.I'm just curious, am I the only wimp out there??and has anyone found a better way to deal with this problem?
