The first stage of the national quarantine rules ease-off, Poles are allowed to use green areas, such as forests or parks. This is very important, because we can enjoy open air activities benefits, while maintaining a safe distance from others. The new rules also include the point which indicates that you can run, walk or cycle for recreational purposes.
Since yesterday we have been given the option to jump on a bike saddle again and enjoy a little trip. It's getting warmer, so bike trips will be even more tempting and pleasant. It is worth giving in and ponder the little whim. At the same time we can take care of our body shape, immunity and mental well-being. However, if you haven't trained regularly at home since the beginning of quarantine, remember not to set off for a long-distance trip. After a long downtime, a several-hour trip is not a good idea. It is better to start with a short trip to the nearest park and then gradually increase the route length. Remember also to warm up because one does not want to start the season with an injury or overtraining!
Remember to be careful when cycling. It is allowed not to wear face masks while in forests, but in all other places one should cover the mouth and nose (mask, scarf or clothing). People with respiratory problems (e.g. asthma) are exempt from this obligation. Now you can enjoy and stretch your legs. Otherwise it would have been difficult for you to breathe while wearing a mask. Some people use anti-smog masks - remember that during heavy traffic you should use a mask that provides greater air flow. The more people cover their face properly, the lower the risk of the disease spreading.
When out of the home, disinfect your hands often and wash them thoroughly with soap after returning home. Consider disinfecting you bicycle handlebar and frequently touched items. Keep the minimum distance of two meters from other people.
We would like to remind you that the 11th International Fair of Bicycle Industry KIELCE BIKE-EXPO is held 26-28 November at the Kielce exhibition centre.
