Destinations, hotels, and attractions are working diligently to make it safe for travelers to visit. But we’re living in a reality where social distancing (and wearing a mask) is the prudent thing to do to keep yourself and others safe.
So, when traveling during the COVID-19 pandemic is not in the bucket list, for the time being, it’s easy to escape the mundane of everyday life and daily routine. Be a tourist in your own city–walk (or bike) around your own city as if you were a tourist and you’ll be surprised how much there is to see and how little you probably know about the place you live.
Think about how lucky we are to live in a place that is so conducive to riding our bikes. West Palm Beach has an amazing climate and stunning scenery that encourage taking advantage of the outdoors, so riding solo along the waterfront and other picturesque areas of the city will be rewarded.
And if you want to extend the many benefits of bicycling to some members of your family or close friends, there are private tours that can also work.
For a minimum of two people, Visit Palm Beach offers private bike tours that leave from downtown West Palm Beach and go over the town of Palm Beach. Besides enjoying the scenery, you will learn some interesting facts about West Palm and Palm Beach island with stops to see artworks along the way. The tours can also be customized to the group’s needs.
“We’ve been doing bike tours for almost 25 years, and this hybrid bike tour of the two neighboring towns is very special for us,” says Kami Kreaps, Visit Palm Beach Manager. “This is something good to do, even while in this pandemic because it is a small group tour and you’re outside.”
Even locals will be surprised to learn and discover many things they didn’t know about.
During this pandemic, cycling has exploded as being one of the best activities to do while in quarantine. Getting 30 to 60 minutes of moderate to brisk activity can help your immune system keep viruses at bay. (Remember, if you’re sick or at-risk of spreading the virus, you shouldn’t go out or exercise.)
Before meeting up with others for a ride, assess key risk factors such as the level of community spread in your area, if you’ve been exposed to coronavirus and could be at risk for asymptomatically spreading it, and what your training partners have been doing to stay safe. Riding with a training partner or small group of two to three that you trust is likely safe, depending on the area you live in and the precautions you all take.
