Air – is it ok to ride?

Like many of you, I’ve been very concerned with the quality of Melbourne’s air. So, when preparing for a ride I check the Air Quality Index.

With fires still burning and weather everchanging the quality of our air can vary en-route. I generally check Alphington and MacLeod if heading North and Box Hill if I’m heading east. No different to checking the rain radar really, however, I’m more comfortable getting wet than experiencing an asthma attack or potentially damaging my lungs.

Ride thoughtfully.
