I'm not much of an exerciser, but the kids and I have been heading outside and walking around the trails around our home. Here is a great list of how to act out on the trails if you're walking, running, riding...
⁰ When passing someone whether on bike or on foot, always announce your presence in advance by saying “passing on your left.”
⁰ They say to be able to hear alerts like that, use only one ear bud to be aware of your surroundings.
⁰ Bikes must always yield to pedestrians and travel at a safe speed.
⁰ If you are stopping, keep to the edge, and don’t stop in the middle of the trail.
⁰ And since trails can get narrow, limit two people side by side at a given time.
⁰ Keep your dogs on a leash at all times and keep your children close to keep them safe and to avoid accidents.
⁰ Use the buddy system and be aware of your surroundings at all times
⁰ Bring a charged phone in case you get lost or for an emergency.
⁰ When you see solid stripes on the trail, always go slow and don’t cross.
⁰ It is always important to make sure to bring water and sunscreen, especially as we approach summer time.
⁰ Don't venture off trail and into brush.
⁰ To keep social distancing, while passing people on the trail or groups, give them at least six feet of space.
