Cycling is very popular regardless of age from young to old and even chil-dren. The number of cyclists increased during the COVID-19 pandemic. There is no Open Sport Space or a special lane that causes the participants to choose the highway as the route. Besides being at risk of accidents, they are also vulnerable to traffic air pollutants or the traffic-related air pollutants (TRAP). The TRAP components are Carbon Black (BC), Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2), Ultrafine Particles (UFPs), and Heavy Metals. TRAP is dangerous for health. The purpose of this study was to determine the level of pollutants on the highway that was passed by cyclists. This research was experimental re-search. The population and research sample was Semarang City Highway and cyclist comunity. The results of this study showed that the levels of pollu-tants during the COVID-19 pandemic were lower when compared to normal days.
