I know how to avoid Ozone Action days. When it gets to be about 89 degrees F out, get out the bicycle and ride. Of course you'll need the following things to do this:
Oh and if you want to beat the heat, just take the water and wear it.

Biking it is really not 'avoiding' ozone action days but I applaud you for helping to not create more ozone problems on those days! Another thing you should have with you is a pair of sunglasses. I am giving you a thumbs up for being conscientious but I would be quite remiss if I didn't share warnings along with your enthusiastic advice first. ;-)
If a person has 'any' respiratory problems, including asthma, it's best not to exert oneself and to limit any time outdoors at all during ozone days and it's also important to know that children are also at a high risk. It's best not to do this during the hottest hours of the day even if you're in great shape because of the possibility of heatstroke even if well hydrated and especially if it's a high humidity day.
Limit the time you're riding and ride at an easy pace.
Solid "green" thinking. And Deeli, good point.
