DAVENPORT, Iowa — Stay-at-home orders and the closing of non-essential businesses due to the coronavirus is making a lot of people and their families feel cooped up inside. Many are taking advantage of the extra time to get outside and explore.
David Ring, President of the Quad Cities Bicycle Club, has noticed it too. On his daily bike rides through Davenport with his wife, he says he's seeing more people out on the trails.
"Actually it's amazing," Ring said. "The last couple of weeks, we've seen more bikes out on the bike paths, in the streets than I've ever seen."
He says many people are searching for new ways to get out and stay active as they self isolate and work from home.
"They hate being in the house all the time," he says. "Get out; do something."
Ring, hope the busy trails are a part of the new normal after this pandemic.
