I ride offroad and one of the reasons is to get away from the Cars and pollution. Ridiculous thing is that in our offroad area is a pollution checking centre. This is located on the top of a hill and it is surprising how many times the air pollution at this centre registers High. No cars any where near it, and only 3 miles from the South Coast. Highest pollution is shown with a southerly wind blowing in from France, With nothing between France and the UK except the sea.
Note to Asthma sufferers- one of my riding partners has the problem but since he has been riding regularly for the last 4 years his problem has decreased greatly-Maybe coincidence. I had a bypass 7 years ago. One of the Incidental contributors that they were looking at was that I was a sales Rep- working London as my area, and had been for 20 years, and they were looking at Carbon monoxide as a possible cause of the Thickening of the arteries. No definite conclusion was drawn on me, but is still being looked at as a possible cause.
How long was I in the army? Five foot seven.
