    Accept I'll probably die a day or two earlier than I otherwise would.

    (edit: I don't have asthma or any other condition which would make bad air quality days a potential immediate threat to my health)

    Spaceballs had that figured out a long time ago.

    I used to live in Salt Lake City too, where those winter inversions really got me down. It sure is hard to ride outside with all that dense smog in the air. One of the things I really like about DC is the generally good air quality. As far as bad ozone days, DC seems to stay within the zone where the benefits of riding outweigh the air quality risks, in my opinion.

    for that air quality alert yesterday i tried riding with a light cloth over my mouth and nose trying to act like a filter. it made me feel significantly hotter, soaked through, and made it harder to breathe. i think i may just have to take the (potentially minor) hit to my lungs or just take a shorter route.

    I just yelled a lot at drivers in order to get the bad air out of my lungs.

    My lungs have developed more tolerance to bad air since I put an air purifier in my bedroom. If it gets too bad, I have to slow down.

    Inhale only through a lit cigarette. The fire kills microorganisms and they have filters.

    I was behind a guy smoking a cigar on a bike a few weeks ago.
