I guess I need to get my hands on a respirator mask. :(
Does anybody know where I can find one locally? I'm lucky to have my HEPA filter indoors, but the crap in the air outside hits me like a brick when I try to exercise.

This is the stuff we sell at my work. I've been wearing the full shebang with the interchangeable cartridges. It gets sweaty as I work but I would rather have a sweaty face than dirty lungs.

oh and you can Will Call any items you buy or have them shipped.

Nice plug Kevin.
Home Depot or Lowe's. Check in the area where they sell the airless paint sprayers. Having a mask when operating that gear is SOP, and why I have one.

How long are people going to wait to ride in effected areas? I would love to go for a ride this weekend, but will hold off if the air quality is still very poor. After the Cedar fire in 2004, I waited a week for the majority of the smoke and ash to clear.

I'm planning to ride Sunday. However, if the air is still bad Saturday, I will have to alert my ride partners that I'm headed up north to ride. I need to get 100 miles in this weekend and am going to try everything I can to do it.

I'm itching to ride.. I think I will go the Rose Bowl today. Air quality seems moderate...

I notice a serious difference in my breathing when I have my mask on at work. I hope if anyone rides it will be far away where it is clear air.
