in New Jersey a family unit had a family dinner, now 4 are dead, and 19 have been tested for the virus.So the DFW rules are doing nothing to stop the spread of the virus. One family member coming in contact with an infected individual can infect the whole family.
the first few cases of the virus here in Cincinnati were caused by an infected individual from New York coming to visit family and infecting all of them.
My wife and I i have 2 children and 5 grandchildren. In normal times get together every Sunday for dinner here at the house. We cancelled family dinners three weeks ago, and we havent seen our children or grandchildren in person in weeks. Only thru Facetime. None of us are taking this pandemic lightly. The only time my wife and I have gone out in public in the last 2 weeks is when we went to the grocery store.
I've lived in my house for 26 years, have been retired going on 7 years. I 'm pretty much here 23 hours a day, every day,. Every so often one likes to see different scenery, otherwise it's just a big expensive jail cell. Getting out is important for my physical and mental well being.It's why they let prisoners have yard time.
Now here is the important part you must understand...As long as I have ZERO chance of contracting or spreading the virus while riding to the park and back, and my government says it's OK to do it, why would I NOT do it?
I have no problem following the rules. Stay at Home rules as set, allow me to ride to the park, as long as I stay 6 feet from others (when in fact I never get within 50 feet or more of others) Until the rules say I can't, then I will.

It doesn't matter what I ride, where I ride, how fast I ride, or how far I ride... it only matters THAT I RIDE...EVERY DAY. "Ferret"
