One of my favourite tools for discovering new routes is Strava Heatmaps. You can do a search for your community and learn where other riders and runners are heading out. Similarly, if you own a Garmin watch or training device, Garmin Connect has popularity routing that you can use to create new routes, and then push to your watch for directions!

Always be sure to use common sense when you’re riding. Bike specific pathways, bike lanes, and quiet country roads are my favourite go-to’s for my rides. Right now I’m generally trying to stay away from the popular routes because I’m trying to avoid people in general, and I’d advise other riders to get creative and do the same.

If you’re interested in where I ride, you’re welcome to check my Strava profile for route ideas.
