Solution to Social Distancing for Cycling and Group Rides During Covid Confinement
Covid-19 confinement restrictions are about to slowly lift where I live in Montréal, Canada. I can't wait to get back to riding my road bike outside, to return to training like normal again. I miss cycling workouts on the road!
Group ride forecasts remain glum though. Social distancing orders threaten to make cycling together impossible this year. For good reason too. The Corona virus KILLS people. It's serious stuff.
The Smart Helmet is going to be the solution to riding together though. And there's no FaceTime or Zoom or cameras involved. It's for real, live, cycling together, riding connected stuff. Let me show you:
**UPDATE: After many requests, this is the link for the Sena R1 bluetooth smart helmet, if you want one too.
The newest version, R1 EVO features MESH techology which basically put, makes connecting with multiple riders easy, and increases the maximum distance between the furthest riders significantly. (Each rider acts as a transmitter in the network of riders in your group. One rider and transmits the signal from another rider, acting as, like, a cellphone tower. That's my super vulgarized way of explaining it.). The R1 Evo also has an integrated light. In the video, the white bikehelmet is the Sena R1 EVO: https://www.sena.com/product/r1-evo

Confinement measures are about to lift gradually where I am. FI-NAL-LY! I can't wait for riding outside to be normal again. Group rides won't be the same during 2020 though. I think the #SenaR1 is going to be our solution...
