The Normality of Self-Isolating on A Bike Ride

In Blogs

In these times of emergency, where there is a huge scare related to COVID-19, stringent measures are being introduced across the globe to keep people safe. Some of us may find ourselves with a lot of freer time on our hands, but very fewer options to make the most of it. Right now, we all need to self-isolate to be able to keep ourselves safe and secure.

 

This can be done by riding your bike and undertaking protective measures like keeping your hands sanitized, maintaining social distances, and using facemasks. If you’re a cyclist, other than wandering away too long distances on your bike, there are numerous cycling-related things you can do to keep yourselves occupied. 

 

Work on your body 

Everyone knows that strengthening the core will definitely make them a better cyclist. But not many people work on it. This is the time when you can begin your day with a core workout. Home workouts are definitely going to become the norm, with gyms likely to be out of action for the time being. You anyway would require some extra strength in your makeshift home office all day. Get your training in while you can, so that when you’re outside again you can reap the advantages. 

 

Learn a new cycle skill 

Whether it’s how to do the bunny hop, use the bike to create a shelter, or even how to mend a puncture, if you’re stuck at home, then now is the time to practice these much-required skills. You might now be best at the chosen skill when things get back to normal, but at least you’ll be much more improved. 

 

Route planning 

If you are speculative about riding your bike right now, you can always begin by planning some rides for when things come back to normal. You may currently just ride those same old routes each time, but searching for new roads to ride is definitely one of the joys of cycling. 

 

Clean your bike

Clean bicycles are sure to go faster, and this is the best time to clean it and get going. This can be regarded as a fairly therapeutic thing to do, and with all this time on your hands it’s can be thorough clean than normal. Other than cleaning, you can also get the gears tuned, replace and adjust your brake pads and many more maintenance activities. If you don’t know how to, then you’ve got plenty of time to learn how to fix it properly.
