It’s March 17, 2020 as I write this and Canada is entering a period of social isolation in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Thinking of all those isolated folks like myself at home on the internet, I was looking over my backlog list of videos to review and this title, Go Solo – You’ve Got This, caught my eye. There is a lot of online reassuring going on right now. “You can do this”, meaning staying at home. Alone.
This video by Jenny Tough, about bike packing solo in Nepal, is inspiring in much the same way. And it reminds us that we don’t have to stay inside to be alone when we have a bike.
