With shelter in place going on for almost a month, slow has been the new norm for me a week longer as I did shelter in place before it was instituted by the county. Most of my transportation is by bicycle with a friend helping out if I need a longer trip.
Riding a bike has been my regular transportation mode for 2 years. It takes what used to be a 5 minute car ride into a 20 – 60 minute bike ride. I considered using the stimulus rebate to fix my car, but I have other higher priorities that take precedence.
I believe many people have been slowed down by the restrictions from shelter in place, but sadly too many people are ignoring them and risking their health and the health of those they come in contact with. Last night, I saw 20+ people playing basketball at a city owned park using the two courts that should be locked down. There are plenty of other city centers in town with basketball courts with fences that should be locked down.
