It’s Flu Season. Here are some ways to stop spreading germs.

January 21st, 2015

I just saw a breaking news story on 8 News Now.  5 people have died from the flu. According to the story, “The Southern Nevada Health District confirmed there have been five flu-related deaths in Clark County since October 2014.

One death involved a child under the age of five, two other deaths involved people between the ages of 5 to 24 years old and two deaths were adults over the age of 50.”

As cyclists, we tend to be pretty healthy individuals. We eat healthy and we exercise daily.  Sometimes it’s easy to think flu-like symptoms are just a cold or allergies and we head out for a ride to ‘clear our heads’.  Before you head out for your next group ride and you have any flu-like symptoms, please remember & practice the basic ways to stop spreading germs.  We don’t want to pass this type of sickness around the groups.

What everyday steps can I take to stop the spread of germs?

There are steps you can take in your daily life to help protect you from getting the flu.

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water or an alcohol-based hand rub.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth. Germs spread this way.
  • Try to avoid close contact with sick people.
  • Practice good health habits. Get plenty of sleep and exercise, manage your stress, drink plenty of fluids, and eat healthy food.
  • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it.
  • If you are sick with flu-like illness, stay home for at least 24 hours after your fever is gone without the use of fever-reducing medicine.

City of Henderson Announces New Diamond Diverging Intersection

January 15th, 2015

The City of Henderson recently announced on their Facebook page a new intersection design called a Diamond Diverging Intersection to make our car & bike commutes easier. It’s really interesting and I am excited to see the finished product. What does everyone think?

According to their page, “Southern Nevada’s first diverging diamond interchange is coming to Henderson to make your commute easier. While work is in progress, please plan ahead for traffic closures on Horizon Drive at the I-515/U.S. 95 interchange January 16-19 and January 23-25. Motorists are encouraged to use posted detours or choose an alternate route. Learn more about the project at http://cityofhenderson.com/ddi
