Fyi NBC Mar. 7, 2020 News Headline that may be worthy of general interest for bicyclists:
"Google tracked his bike ride past a burglarized home.
That made him a suspect."

Excerpt:
“If you’re innocent, that doesn’t mean you can’t be in the wrong place at the wrong time,
like going on a bike ride
in which your GPS puts you in a position where police suspect you of a crime you didn’t commit,” McCoy said.

Actually surprised we don’t hear more of this.    Big brother is watching.
