We’re having some awesome weather here in Central Texas this week so I had to take advantage of it and go for a ride at lunch. We live near Brushy Creek Trail and I can cycle there easily from my house which is awesome!
The problem with the trail is that it’s too narrow for easy social distancing, and most people on the trail do not wear masks. I counted maybe 2 other cyclists wearing masks, and only 4 pedestrians masked up. I got pretty good at pulling the mask up from my chin to over my mouth and nose when needed, but towards the end of the ride, it was just easier to wear the mask all the time. I just wish others did too! So, I’ll probably not ride the trail much until we are done with COVID, or maybe I will double-layer my masks.
Looking at the stats for this ride, it looks like the distance is 13.1 miles, which is a half-marathon! I guess it would be a good route to run in order to get that achievement. But impossible for me because of the social-distancing thing. I’ll only run on the wide neighborhood streets where I can ditch the mask and keep a good space between myself and others. Oh well…
I hope you had a good day!
