    They’re called something like Breathe Strips. They have two rigid-ish inserts along the length and are very sticky. Sticking them across the nose is supposed to slightly pull open the nostrils, thus aiding breathing.

    I’ve seen rugby players with them as with a gumshield and jaw clamped to avoid fracture in contact, a lot of breathing is via the nostrils.

    However, in cycling, most of the breathing is through the mouth, so I don’t think it would really help much.

    IIRC, they were initially marketed as an anti-snoring device.

    Didn’t work, though – ask my wife! 😯

    One of my business contacts in Oslo sent me an anti-snoring pillow. Came with a thin ceramic tile in it and kinda worked as it was virtually impossible to sleep on!

    😕

    I spent several minutes convincing the missus that it wasn’t made like that so that she could drop in on my face from six foot to stop the snoring! 😛
