Outdoor recreation, specifically bicycling, is a great way to stay healthy. Riding solo is the best way to reduce the spread of COVID-19. If you encounter others on the trail, maintain as much distance as possible; even much more than 6-feet. Note that many public restrooms and drinking fountains are closed to the public, as are campgrounds and many businesses. Come prepared with everything you might need on a ride (bring extra water and snacks!) and hit the restroom before you leave. Take hand sanitizer, avoid touching surfaces, and don't touch your face. If you have symptoms, stay home. Wash your hands, shower as soon, and change clothes as you get home.
With this in mind, realize that our region has great trails and many low-traffic roads and streets. Check out the resources below to find a place to ride!
Always wear a helmet and obey traffic laws. Brightly-colored and high-visibility clothing are recommended, especially at dusk or after dark. Lights are required between sunset and sunrise. Check out Golden Hills' bicycling resources page for more information on safe bicycling habits and practices.
Stay safe and healthy, and have fun out there!
