The post below seemed to indicate all these respiratory problems that can result from high ozone exposure. But I thought the actual ozone level was still relatively low and the real problem is all the other airborne pollutants.

So what's the best ride plan for bad air days? Ride in the woods?

In Toronto we just came off of three days in a row of "air quality advisory" aka "smog alert" Do you guys ride no matter what or take it easier on smog days?

...that cyclists and other people who exercised in polluted air had higher levels of carbon monoxide and other toxins in their blood during and immediately following exercise, but three hours later their blood toxin levels were LOWER than those of people who were passively exposed to the ozone, exhaust, etc.
