Getting out for walks and bike rides, no matter what distance, is extremely important. A routine daily walk gives you a break from the confines of your living space, and is encouraged as long as you practice safe social distancing and other recommendations from health professionals like wearing a mask when social distancing isn’t possible. The GoPhillyGo walkshed and bikeshed feature is perfect for finding trails, greenspaces, or just to plan a walk around your neighborhood. Use it to see what is within 15 to 60 minutes of your current location. Here’s how it works.
Click “Explore” on the GoPhillyGo mobile site, then click the location arrow or type your current address into the trip planner. Your location will appear in a drop down box. Click there, and a map will appear showing the 15 minute walkshed as a highlighted area. Use the slider to adjust the map to display up to 60 minutes from your location.
Mindfulness walks and bike rides are more important than ever, and we want you to experience the health and physical benefits of being outside. Even a brief walk around your neighborhood will help you beat the quarantine blues. When you venture outside, be sure to keep at least 6 feet away from other people, and follow the most up to date CDC recommendations for protecting you and everyone else during this public health emergency.
