Exercise and Cycling
You can leave home for exercise but there are limits:
You must not travel more than 25km from where you live to exercise.
Use our exercise time to get out and stay healthy, raise a hand or give a nod to your fellow cyclists, and be mindful everyones time on the cycle tracks is now precious. If you have an exercise bike or a bike trainer at home keep up the schedule and perhaps join a virtual exercise class or follow an online workout. VicHealth has an excellent website that outlines how exercise can help during the coronavirus..
Remember to pack some hand sanitiser containing at least 60 per cent alcohol and stay at least 1.5 metres away from to other people. Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds as soon as you return indoors.
We look forward to seeing you on an official WBUG once restrictions are relaxed, until then a big wave if we pass on the bike track.
The ABC Online has an interactive map that shows a 25 kilometre circle around your home.
Type your address into the search bar and a circle will appear showing your five kilometre radius.
