Are masks helpful against air pollution?

When cycling, it is often thought that the pollutants inhaled are higher. For this reason, several cyclists always wear protective masks. But how efficient are they?

In the end, drivers are still affected by higher concentrations of pollutants, so keep going with your bike!
