Cycling Tips During Covid

Be aware that Siskiyou Velo has temporarily suspended all group rides. If you choose to go out riding with one or two friends or family members, read this Instagram post. Click the buttons on each slide to view the whole thing.
One comment in the post is notable (I’m paraphrasing): “The six 6 ft social distancing rule is designed to allow respiratory droplets to fall to the ground rather than on another person. When riding on a bike at 15 MPH or so, those distances must be much greater to allow for gravity to take effect, 15 feet or so. Basically, don’t draft.”
Thanks to Gary Shaff for passing this on.
