    throat lozenges with zinc, 1 every half hour or so for about 2-3 hours when you start noticing irritation or straight off the bike. a bit hairy tasting but can work well.

    Yea, they do taste like crap, but they work (even if they make you think that you are feeling better...Placebo effect, gotta love it;) )

    There is a brand called Coldeez, pick it up wherever.

    Also, if it feels like a cold, use Airborn. Loaded with vitamins, minerals etc. (Don't blame me if you test positive on a random drug test... Well. That's a different story...:p ) Tastes alright, comes in little 'alka-seltzer' capsules that fizzle in water.



    Also, your body might just be adjusting to the cold, dry air. Since it is fall down there, right? Might go away after a while.
