Taking a ride on a Quiet Cat electric bike from Pacific Northwest E-Bike Adventures is a safe and fun way to get outside. It's easy to maintain social distance on a bike and fresh air is the best environment to avoid the novel corona virus. According to the Texas Medical Association "Going for a walk, run or bike ride with others" ranks clear down at 3 out of 10 for risk factor of catching COVID-19. Going to bar ranks 10 out 0f 10, but a bike ride is better in so many ways!

Getting out of the house and engaging in physical activity is one of the best ways to improve your mood. Riding around in the sunshine is a great way to get some vitamin D and oxygen. In fact, a study published in the International Journal of Health Research "Spending time outdoors is one of the fastest ways to improve your health and happiness. It's been shown to lower stress, blood pressure and heart rate, while encouraging physical activity and buoying mood  and mental health. Spending just 20 minutes in a park — even if you don't exercise while you're there — is enough to improve well-being, according to the research."

We all need a boost in our mood right now, considering everything that is going on. Hop on an E-Bike and enjoy the peace of the woods and lake, the singing birds and fresh air.
