Riding and the virus
I think it's time to think about some things before you ride. We're lucky to have a "hobby" that we can still do somewhat safely but there's some things we should think about. I'd rather exaggerate my precautions than get this FN virus. I smoked for over 40 years. Just a few weeks ago I had an infection in my lungs. I really don't want this bug.
Please remember, if you crash and get hurt, you may have to go to the hospital. Good luck with that! Also do you think other riders would rush to your aid right now? This might be a good time to ride conservatively.
Ride alone or only with persons from your household.
Take some soap with you and wash your hands. Gas stations sometimes have water outside. Use that. Avoid going inside.
Wear rubber gloves at the gas pump. 1000 people touched it before you and it was last washed ten years ago. You could pump using only one glove to save your stash of gloves. If you don't have gloves use hand sanitizer or rubbing alcohol after fueling. If I didn't have those items, I would use some brake clean which is acetone, (your wife has fingernail polish remover that is acetone). I've always kept gloves in my bike anyway in case I happened upon another rider that had crashed.
Think about where you are going to ride. Avoid traffic where you'll be exposed to some dude coughing next to you with his window open. We rode the Blue Ridge Parkway yesterday. I was surprised how many people were there. The few times we stopped, I picked the pull offs that no other people were at. Expect more people to be out. Avoid them.
Avoid restrooms! If you're in "the wild", piss and/or crap in the woods. Pack toilet paper. If there's no woods, limit your water intake so you piss less.
Take all food and drinks from home. Don't go into the stores. Use vending machines if you have to but remember those items were stocked by a human that could be infected. Wipe down that coke can with a disinfecting wipe.
Treat everyone you encounter as if both of you are infected.
Guys, stay safe. This virus will be here a long time and is no joke, it will kick your ass and kill you parents.
The feeling of the wind in your face can lift your heart.
