Commuter Air Quality ?(1 post)

Commuter Air Quality ?flybyvine

As well as other training rides, I also commute to work on my road bike. It is only about 10kms and I tend to ride it fairly hard but it is all in traffic (sometimes slow sometimes fast).

Does anyone know about the air quality compared to driving a car ? Its the same stuff going into the cars on the road with me (sure I am probably breathing in more of the stuff though). I thought I read somewhere that biek commuters actually showed LESS CO in their blood than drivers as we expel more air as well.

Cheers
