Who's riding outside?

I just read a report on KSL that states "...people should not be exercising outside -- period." You can check it out here.

Are people still riding outside? To be honest this kinda freaks me out. Is the air cleaner at higher elevations? I rode up AF Canyon yesterday and will be pre-riding the Snowbird ICUP course tonight. Hopefully I'm not doing any permanent damage...

I rode tonite. I've inhaled alot worse in my day. I felt good tonite at RMR. The only thing that was weird is I got a bloody nose after the race???? Maybe that's the air I don't know? I've raced in LA and it felt hard there but wasn't sure if it was the air or what. I personally don't trust any air that I can't see. Those shoes are working great on the commute to work. thanks again! -brian b

I've been hearing the same thing. I tell myself that, even though it may be better to do aerobic training indoors right now, there's no substitute for the technical training that I need to go outside for. But I'll let you know if I come back from American Fork Canyon with my lungs on fire.

I have no choice but to ride due to the car being broken down. The air is SLC's dirty little secret.

Haven't you heard? Cyclists are not "people". "People" is BMI 30+ with bad knees and lots of excuses. Air is the same in Alta, but go ride your bike anyway. Firefighters have it worse.
