Social Distancing Requirements Drive a Massive Increase in Outdoor Activities

August 23 14:17 2021

Over the last year and a half, people have had to learn to live differently. Social events like parties and going to the bar to watch a live performance or dance the night away aren’t safe options these days. Even though things are beginning to open up again, the world faces a massive increase in the Delta variant, keeping some people looking for new adventures and options. One industry that has seen an enormous increase in customers is the outdoor activities sector.

Science continues to show that one of the ways to help prevent Covid is to keep activities outdoors. As people find themselves with more time on their hands and less normal activities, they are looking for new options. Mountain biking has become a hugely popular choice

People can ride mountain bikes safely because it’s an outdoor activity that, even with friends, is easy to keep socially distanced. However, it can be a little overwhelming and confusing for those who are just getting into the sport. Mountain bikes are designed specifically to withstand the harsher treatment that trails and challenging rides provide. The standard bike won’t hold up to this type of riding.

“There are so many more people getting into the sport these days, and everyone is looking for something that will give them a way to get out of the house and still somehow interact with other people. Riding can be done alone, or it can be done in groups. Groups are great because it gives people some competition and encouragement, which can be important for beginners,” said a spokesperson for the company.

There are two major types of frames for mountain bikes: hardtails, which are the original frame type for all mountain bikes, and soft tale, which are moutian bikes with a complete suspension system.  This is just one of the significant differences that will need to be considered when someone gets into the sport for the first time. Frame need is based on the type and location of riding.

“Mountain biking is a commitment, but it has so many benefits from health to mental health. Riding like this is an incredible workout and generally an excellent alternative to hitting the gym. It has also been shown that people that spend time outdoors have lower stress levels and less anxiety.” The spokesperson added.
