With all the wildfires and the hot inversion layer, air quality in central CA here is wretched. Not only can I smell the air, I can taste it. Even as I sit here in the house, my nose tingles and can faintly smell smoke. Current air quality is "Very Unhealthy" for all groups....including cyclists I'm sure. Ventured out for a ride yesterday but returned early with a headache.
Stuck inside, got the trainer in from the garage and in front of the TdF early this am. But this is summer...time to build mileage, flatten hills, etc. and not return to short, foggy winter days.
Anyone else in CA intimidated by the ozone out there? Someone commented, with hyperbole I'm sure, this is alike a mini-apocalypse.
