Smog Alert

Today we got the first of what will no doubt be many smog alerts this summer.  How do you ride with a smog alert?  Usually on red and purple days I ride very slowly on the afternoon commute when the smog is at its worst.  If I feel the need to ride hard or fast I make sure to do that in the morning on my way to work.  Don’t let smog keep you from riding but don’t ignore the health consequences of breathing dirty air.
