Should I ride when sick?

Hi Everyone,

I have been suffering from a very bad head cold/virus since last weekend. I have a lot of head congestion with some post nasal but no fever and have not ridden my bike (Zwifted) since it started.Would it benefit me to take a easy ride and get a light sweat up to help clear my head?

I think a doctor would be a better person to ask, but I would say rest because most people do not get enough of it.

Old school was if it’s above the neck you’re ok.  I’ve been fighting a head cold and I find a good ride opens the sinuses up gets things flowing. YMMV
