riding through pollution? apparently it’s not that bad

very interesting article here from Popular Science on the effects of cycling through polluted areas. seems that low-intensity riding triggers greater effects on the body than high-intensity cycling. in fact, high-intensity riding, the study found, has little to no effect on the body despite the rider breathing in pollution.

very much worth a read – thanks Steve for sending this in! check it out here.
