While the coronavirus pandemic continues to spread, causing bike races—and many other large events—to be postponed and canceled, you might be wondering what you should do for your own personal health and how this could affect your training.
Amid the COVID-19 global pandemic and recommendations to practice “social distancing,” a growing number of people have taken themselves off public transit and out of cabs and ride-hailing cars and gotten onto bicycles.
It’s an increasingly urgent question for those who still have to travel into work, or to collect supplies or visit vulnerable people – how can you get around without contracting – or spreading – the coronavirus? One answer could be cycling.
In much of the United States and probably much of the world, driving, and transit are down. Several U.S. cities are seeing higher numbers of bicycling during the past couple of weeks. New York City is reporting increased cycling and record bike-share usage. Chicago is experiencing a biking boom. Bike-share usage is also making a comeback in China.
If there’s a silver lining to the COVID-19 pandemic — and let’s be real: we could all really use a win right now — it’s that there’s probably never been a better time to ride a bike in the Big Apple.
As COVID-19 shuts down buses and trains in cities, we remember that bicycles are the ultimate contingency plan.
