Such an odd feeling. I try to get out and ride a couple times a week, and today I was biking on a dirt trail edging a park near my house. Above me were some huge power lines, like these:
I've ridden this trail before and never had issue. My bike has metal handgrips attached to the handle bars. I was gripping those and felt a quickly building pain in both hands. It felt like if you accidentally touch the metal part of a power cable plug while plugging it in. Exact same feeling, but radiating through all 10 fingers. I even got a nice little zap from under my seat which is what made me quickly put two and two together. I immediately got out from under the powerlines.
Crazy. I'd figure with the rubber tires, I wouldn't have to worry. But I guess if there's any moisture on the tires that goes out the window.
Strange occurrence, definitely. Anyone else ever experienced this?
