Are you tired of coronavirus isolation? Of course, sitting at home and working with the sofa all day is great until the snacks are over and this pleasant spring weather makes you feel outdoors.
The good news: breathing in fresh air and playing sports is still possible, even useful, against the backdrop of voluntary social distance and isolation used to curb the spread of the coronavirus pandemic. And, as many bike shop owners and even several city authorities will tell you, one of the best ways to do this is to ride a bike. If you need to get to the store or just go in for sports, a bike jump is a great idea, and many local bike shops are ready to help.
Throughout the country, bicycle shops remain open even when most other businesses close. At first glance, you might think that cycling is not a top priority during a pandemic. But, as one of the local bike shops in Los Angeles recently noted, bicycles are much more than just a tool for fun and relaxation. Many people rely on them to move around, and now use bikes as an alternative to public transport without germs. On top of that, many people ride as part of their job – just think of the person on the delivery bike who brings your lunch order.
“We try to stay open to serve the community,” said Peter Vermeren, owner of the Coco & # 39; s variety of goods stores in Los Angeles, in the video above. “We think cycling is important, especially at times like this.”
Path Bike Shop in Orange County, California, said cycling is the perfect way to breathe fresh air and exercise without transmitting germs between people: “Cycling on the street is one of the best ways to practice distance communication.”

We are pleased to offer to pick up everything you need so that you can go out and ride a bike, as well as contactlessly take and pick up bicycles that need maintenance.

Please call or write to any of our places with any questions or needs that you may have. We are here to support and help you, and to help you ride through all this, because cycling outside is one of the best ways to practice distance from society.

Of New York In Wisconsin and beyond, shops do everything, including disinfecting bicycles and separating employees from customers to keep people on the pedals. Government and health officials are also starting to board. Cities like Philadelphia, San Franciscoand Berlin announced that bike shops are a necessary service. This means that they are allowed to remain open, even if strict measures are taken to socially distance themselves.
An explanation for those who asked the question: how car repair shops are considered necessary, so that people can make important trips, as well as repair shops and mobile bicycle repair companies. Social distancing and consistent cleaning requirements continued to be required.

Cycling has always been a great form of exercise and walking in the fresh air, and the Covid-19 has not changed that. Of course, be sure to consult your local health authority about the latest recommendations before setting off. As a rule, do not forget to keep your distance from others and take advice from Arnold Schwarzenegger, who published this useful PSA during his trip this week:
Doctors say that cycling on the street is normal, so I leave the house the only way, but if you ride a bike or go for a walk, do not stop, avoid talking to people. I apologize to everyone, but I will not dwell on my selfies. Stay confident, be safe. pic.twitter.com/WAb4h57VAZ
