    Smoke affecting anyone's ride?

    I put in about 28miles yesterday and woke up with a sore throat. So I decided to drive to work today.

    Anyone else hating that smoke?

    It really sucks all those people are loosing their homes.

    Exercised induced asthma is preventing me from even thinking about riding.

    I did a short road ride this morning and feel fine.
    You have just been mentally Rick Roll'd. Yup you're thinking about it right now aren't you? Don't fight it.

    Rode Hall and Picture Rock today and my throat is no more dry than it normally is on a warm day.

    I live just a few miles south of the Black Forest evac area, so with morning smoke that's so thick you can chew on it, my morning rides have been axed for now. Of course, the day I sleep in a little (today)...it's crystal clear out. The afternoons have been just fine though. Hoping to get out later today.

    I'm pulling some very colorful luggies out of my sinus in the mornings...but that may be more pollen related than smoke. I'm out of Golden.
    There's some wind today so I'm going to attempt a roadie up Lookout after work.
    Naysayers never apologize. Critics go to their grave thinking everyone else is wrong.

    Was pondering if there was a website that reports air quality by area/town and found this. Not quite sure what any of it means except "air quality" of good or moderate. The whole particulate stuff is over my head.

    Use a Vaporizer instead of a pipe.
