The latest BikeWalkLee Column has some valuable information for every walker, runner, and bicyclist still out there in our hot and humid season.
For the latest on organized events, visit the event websites, such as Fort Myers Track Club (ftmyerstrackclub.com), Gulf Coast Runners (gcrunner.org), Caloosa Riders (caloosariders.org), and South West Florida Critical Mass (meetup.com/Biking-SWFL).
Most of the near-term upcoming events are still postponed or cancelled, but don't let that stop you from taking a run or a bicycle ride. Just make sure your are safe and hydrated. Keep an eye on the weather and do not go out if thunderstorms are in the forecast. Whether you are cycling or running, always be aware of motorized traffic around you.
Protect yourself and others by avoiding group activities and close proximity to other people. Getting some exercise and enjoying the outdoors is fine. Just remember to practice social distancing (at least 6' distance, more when you're exercising, use common sense) to keep yourself and others safe. If you feel sick, consider wearing a face mask or staying home. Stay healthy. Visit floridahealthcovid19.gov and cdc.gov for more information.
