Over the past few months, we've all experienced changes to our routines on some level as we, our employers, our schools and the businesses we support take measures to curb the spread of COVID-19. The shake up of our daily routines, lack of races, group rides and events on the calendar, and changes to the way we travel and vacation have had an impact on how, when and where we ride.
We reached out to our Pathletes to hear about how they're riding through COVID-19, and here's what they had to say:
"Big bummer with no racing or not much racing available. I have taken the opportunity to do some amazing riding this year and have hit Sedona, Lake Tahoe, Mammoth, Truckee and most recently, Bentonville, Arkansas which was even better than I expected! Like all, I hope life gets back to more normal soon," Chris Sanchirico.
"We raced SoCal Enduro last weekend. Emma and Claire [Collin's sisters] finished 3rd and 4th, only one second difference overall. It was my worst feeling race day, ever...I still managed 8th out of 12, cool! Riding as much as I can, working somewhere new now, lots more time at home and riding. Nice fresh start, yeehaw!" Collin Timmermans.
"Summer has been good for me - doing some riding but probably less than an average year. Trying to stay fit by riding on Zwift in my garage - I picked up one of the Wahoo Kickr Core trainers. it's really a great trainer. My family and I have also been riding more, mostly around Orange and down to the circle for dinner. They've done a great job with outdoor dining and I'm seeing lots of folks out riding their bikes, which is really great. I was able to get out on the Hawk trail in Santiago Oaks with Jon Kearley and Jeff McLeary last week to look at some upcoming work we'll do out there - just need some rain to be able to do it," Nathan Forrest
