COVID-19 Safety Tips for Cyclists

Since COVID began, cyclists have increased everywhere. Many prefer to ride bikes to work instead of using public transportation. Others find cycling an enjoyable way to get exercise and fresh air.

Here are some of the best tips for staying safe on two wheels, from SF Weekly.

1. Wear a face mask

Wearing the right type of mask should help keep you and other people safe from infection, especially if you plan on visiting numerous places all in one day. 

2. Avoid riding in groups

While the risk of getting infected with the coronavirus is very low if you ride a bike, you still need to follow social distancing rules.

3. Monitor your health

It’s important to check yourself for any signs and symptoms of infection. If you haven’t been tested yet, be sure to undergo self-quarantine until you are given the-all clear. Before you head out, take your temperature and check whether you have any of the symptoms of COVID-19.

4. Don’t ignore traffic safety

Road accidents are a perennial danger, so following traffic rules should be a given.

With a little extra vigilance, you can make the most out of the situation and enjoy the best of what the outside world has to offer after months of being under lockdown.
