PM 2.5 I hate you so much

The entire Western United States is burning to the ground right now. I had been riding anyway, but the air is so thick that it’s hard to see the mountains across the valley. At one point it was difficult to see the mountains on this side of the valley just a couple of miles away.

I can’t not ride. At the same time riding outside is like smoking a bunch of packs of cigarettes. Not wanting to destroy my lungs I turned to a morning Zwift ride and climbed the Alp de Zwift. It breaks my heart to not be outside riding in the summer but I’d rather that than actually breaking my heart with the crappy air.

That’s my virtual butt right there

The ride – Al de Zwift
