    RE: Air quality.
    Thanks for the link wes (bookmarked).
    Does anyone know of any studies done to see if these things work. My wife said last night, 'Hey, it's gotta be better than nothing'. I think she might be onto something. Now how to not look like a complete dork whilst wearing one. I think the previously mentioned Skeletor look could do it.

    This is what happens when you try to scam someone on ebay - your **** gets posted to a blog for a billion people to see. Don't be like him.

    re: Exhaust levels

    Differences in cyclists and car drivers exposure to airpollution from traffic in the city of CopenhagenJette Ranka,U, Jens Folkeb, Per Homann JespersenaaUniersity of Roskilde, Department of Enironment, Technology and Social Studies, P.O. Box 260, DK-4000 Roskilde,DenmarkbMFG-Enironmental Research Group, Østergade 30, DK-3250 Gilleleje, DenmarkReceived 16 August 2000; accepted 5 February 2001

    It has frequently been claimed that cycling in heavy traffic is unhealthy, more so than driving a car. To test thishypothesis, teams of two cyclists and two car drivers in two cars were equipped with personal air samplers whiledriving for 4 h on 2 different days in the morning traffic of Copenhagen. The air sample charcoal tubes were analysedŽ.Ž.for their benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene and xylene BTEX content and the air filters for particles total dust . The concentrations of particles and BTEX in the cabin of the cars were 2-4 times greater than in the cyclists’ breathingzone, the greatest difference being for BTEX. Therefore, even after taking the increased respiration rate of cyclistsinto consideration, car drivers seem to be more exposed to airborne pollution than cyclists. 2001 Elsevier ScienceB.V.

    while we're on the subject of single malts this site is my typical reference. you could spend hours browsing through. it's quite addictive.
    come to think of it, the toronto fixed group guys did a "scotch ride" last fall where we rode around for a bit then stopped at Feathers on kingston road to sample single malts (and there's 450+ on hand) . I'm thinking that everyone orders their favourites and then we switch so as to try something new. would anybody be up for that kind of thing?

    Determinants of fine particle (PM2.5) personal exposure levelsin transport microenvironments, London, UKH.S. Adams, M.J. Nieuwenhuijsen*, R.N. ColvileImperial College of Science Technology and Medicine, TH Huxley School of Environment, Earth Sciences and Engineering,RSM Building, Prince Consort Road, London, SW72BP, UKReceived 1 November 2000; received in revised form 4 March 2001; accepted 15 March 2001

    A series of field studies were carried out in London, UK, during 1999–2000 in which over 400 fine particle (PM2.5)personal exposure level measurements were taken for journeys in bicycle, bus, car and underground rail transportmicroenvironments. This was the first comprehensive PM2.5personal exposure study of transport users. Both a fixed-route multi-transport mode study and a study of cyclists’ commuter journeys were undertaken. Subsequent to thesefield studies regression modelling of possible influencing factors of these exposure levels was carried out. Meteorologicalvariables, traffic density, mode and route were considered; the relationships of personal exposure levels with fixed sitemonitor (FSM) concentrations, and of the FSM concentrations with the potential predictor variables, were alsoinvestigated. This analysis of the determinants of transport user exposure to PM2.5in London, UK, showed that windspeed had a significant influence on personal exposure levels, though explained only up to 20% of the variability of roadtransport user exposure levels. The occurrence of higher wind speeds was strongly associated with a decrease in personalexposure levels; a 1.5–2.0 fold difference in exposure level concentrations was estimated between the 10th and 90thpercentiles of wind speed. Route was a significant factor, whilst mode was not a significant factor in the street microenvironment (between bicycle, bus and car modes); models incorporating route and mode, as well as wind speed,explained approximately 35% of the variability in PM2.5exposure levels. Personal exposure levels were reasonably correlated with urban background FSM concentrations, for fixed-route road mode (bicycle, bus and car) exposure level concentrations, r ¼ 0:27 ( p50:01) and for commuter cyclists’ exposure level concentrations r ¼ 0:58 ( p50:01). # 2001Elsevier Science Ltd.

    What's interesting though are the differences between summer and winter: in the summer, bicyclists are exposed to marginally less than all but bus passengers (with car and subway riders getting slightly higher concentrations); in winter, bicyclists have it significantly worse of all modes.

    I keep getting this mental picture of a bunch of babbling, drunken fixie riders terrorizing the good burghurs of Toronto. Wait a minute...that sounds like the D.C. Pirates! lol. Why don't we all buy our favorite and do our own "tasting"? I choke at the $7 to $15 they ask for at the bar.

    You have a point there; the only allure of doing it at the bar is that you can try something that you literally cannot otherwise get in canada. the owner of the pub flies to scotland a few times a year and brings his stock back with him. but i do like the idea of the informality of the BYOB tasting. my only rule is: no bar rail scotch! i don't want to be stuck "tasting" famous grouse! oh and it must be from scotland.
    if we could get, say, 5 or more people this could be a great time. i'd probably bring Balvenie 10yr old.

    But something like that sounds good.
    Like our other plain hit a park drink a 40oz

    can't this saturday, another party. besides, that would leave you ride-for-hear guys in no shape for sunday!

    i'm thinking that this sort of thing would make a great after work on a friday activity. and if not everyone's into scotch we can always do exotic beers. but scotch is better.

    there was some talk about cycling knickers a while back. knowing the high prices of some of the brands i decided to order a pair of these. i know they are really just modified dickies workpants but i have a couple of pair of them (unmodified) and they last forever and are fairly cheap. just something to chew on for those of you who don't want to shell out $150 for a pair of the fancies. $35 you can't go wrong. i'll give a full report once i they are delivered.

    Oh come on! Like my father, and his father before him, we only like the cheap scotch... The expensive stuff just tastes like a pond... I mean I kind of equate is with truffles. My Dad usually brings a bottle of J&B with him when he travels on business because when he asks for a scotch and soda they break out the single malt and don't have anything a little less 'cultured' for his tastes... that being said he is an avid wine collector and delicacy enthusiast. Why don't we have a 'cigar afficionado' party while we are at it and not let anything but foot long cubans through the door?
