Solution to Social Distancing for Cycling and Group Rides During Covid Confinement

 
Raise your hand if you don't miss riding like in the pre-Covid era. That's what I thought.

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

Bike selfie. I do this sometimes to see what my face looks like when I feel this happy. Just to check. Lol. #AdventureSeeker #senabluetooth #girlswhoride #motorcyclelife #motorcyclehelmets

I MADE MY OWN #HORCHATA! And I made it with maple syrup from Québec. And it's DELICIOUS. And I think it could win the #maplesyrup recipe challenge! Please give it a vote by clicking the link in my bio! (The video showing how to make the recipe - 4 ingredients and a few minutes - is on my YouTube channel and the latest blog on www.lexalbrecht.com). THANKS FOR VOTING FOR MY CANADIAN HORCHATA! #erable #erableduquebec #érable maplesyruprecipes #veganrecipes #horchatarecipe #homemadehorchata #vitamixrecipe
New quarantine reflex: stock up on the good stuff. @eightouncecoffee has a whole bunch of #thirdwavecoffee roasters' products available online right now. Pretty fun to shop for them all in one place! Current stock: @detourcoffee, and pulling shots with the #Leverpresso. #CAFN8me #coffee #coffeebeans #thirdwavecoffee #espresso #leverpressocoffee #portablecoffeemaker #manualespresso #manualespressomachine #detourcoffee #detourroasters #th3rdwave
I was on my bike and this girl was playing her violin at the riverside. I like to think she was enjoying doing her thing, as much as I was enjoying doing mine. #fromwhereiride #cyclinglife #cyclistlife #ruralroads #riverside #violin #violinist #violinistsofinstagram #musicinnature #springtime
New battery day. I love that I can change my @4iiiicom's battery myself, that it takes the same size as my kitchen scale and my bathroom scale, and that the trusty dolla store sells them. Easy to find, easy to do. That leaves efforts for other stuff! #4iiii #4iiiipowermeter #4iiiiprecision #4iiiipodiiiium #4iiiicom #4iiiiambassador #4iiiinnovations #4iiii_powermeter #cyclistsofinstagram #cyclist #cyclinggirl #powermeter #powermetertraining #poweredby4iiii
I am a gently-hit-two-birds-with-one-stone kinda girl. For example, I almost always do something while brushing my teeth, and I also try to pick my mid-ride pee-break spots wisely : where there's something interesting to look at, that I might otherwise never get to see. Like this stuff. #aglife #cyclistlife #rurallife #farmlife #quebec #canada #fromwhereiride #fromwhereimictate
Good thing I had some #homegym tools on hand other than exercise bands (those darn things keep snapping like there's no tomorrow). I like my #workout tools like I like my strength and stability for riding and running: SOLID. #elasticbandproblems #cyclistlife #homegym #coreworkout #corestrength #corestrengthening #corestrengthtraining #corestrengtheningexercises
Socially distanced group riding formation. (Le Roi du Parc et sa blonde ont le droit aux selfies rapprochés.) I love riding my BIKE. I love riding my bike in great places even more. I love riding my bike in great places, with great people even more than that! #livingthedream #rideconnected #adventureseeker #senar1 #senabluetooth #fromwhereIride #Garneau
I ran out of prepared meals on the weekend. It was a mess. No, I was a mess, on the couch post-training, waiting for the lunch fairy to show up. She didn't. The freezer is stocked again. Problem solved. #cyclistproblems #cyclistsolutions #athletelife #mealprep #mealprepideas #mealprepping #inmyfreezer #freezermeals #freezerstash #freezercooking #freezerfriendly
