Rally Cycling's Healthy Habits Challenge #3: Stay in touch

The riders of Rally Cycling continue with their Healthy Habits Challenge, a series of weekly video messages aimed at keeping people healthy and happy while we're cooped up indoors riding out the novel coronavirus.

Canadian Sara Poidevin started the ball rolling two weeks ago with her core workout, and Robin Carpenter continued last week with a challenge to make meals healthier.

For week three, Kyle Murphy comes to us from his place in rural Vermont to talk about the importance of maintaining relationships and keeping the lines of communication open.

Healthy Habits Challenge #3: Stay in touch

Welcome to week #3 of the Healthy Habits Challenge. I’m Kyle Murphy and I’m happy to introduce this week’s “Stay in Touch” theme.

We’re all practicing social distancing right now, and many of us only leave the house for essential things. But what about the relationships in our lives? We shouldn’t put those on hold just because we’re staying indoors.

That’s why it’s more important now than ever before to reach out to others for a phone call or a video chat.

My Rally Cycling team and I are challenging you, over the next seven days, to make one personal call each day.

Don’t know who to call? Try calling a family member. Maybe ring up someone who is retired. Call someone who lives alone. It doesn’t matter who you call.

We’re not asking you to step out of your comfort zone, we’re just encouraging you to make a healthy choice.

To take part in our challenge – simply share a portion or screenshot of your video call or include a note about your phone call, and use #HealthyHabitswithPoido in your social media post.

Keep the lines of communication open and talk to you soon!

Cyclingnews is the world's leader in English-language coverage of professional cycling. Started in 1995 by University of Newcastle professor Bill Mitchell, the site was one of the first to provide breaking news and results over the internet in English. The site was purchased by Knapp Communications in 1999, and owner Gerard Knapp built it into the definitive voice of pro cycling. Since then, major publishing house Future PLC has owned the site and expanded it to include top features, news, results, photos and tech reporting. The site continues to be the most comprehensive and authoritative English voice in professional cycling.
