Motorcycle Face Mask Neck Cover Balaclava Cycling Bike Masks Ski Outdoor Bandana
You may be a lucky cyclist who has access to miles of trails where you can ride without passing many people. But if not, you’ve probably at least considered riding with a mask on. Some states have even made it mandatory to wear masks in public when you cannot adhere to social distancing guidelines of six feet—which applies to most trails when you have to pass others walking, running, and biking. So even if you’ve been riding solo and avoiding popular routes, it’s likely a good idea to bring along some kind of face covering, whether it’s a Buff or a DIY cloth mask.
But especially as the summer heat cranks up, you may be looking for a more breathable, moisture-wicking option. Fortunately, many cycling, outdoor, and athletic apparel companies are now producing their own masks, so you can ride outside more comfortably while keeping others safe and at ease.
