Personally I'm not into cycling but prefer walking but where I live it is right on the edge of Dartmoor and we see a lot of cyclist and are lucky in the amount of cycle paths we have both on road and off road, in fact some areas have cycle paths both on pavement and on road in the same place. But what gets me and I'm only speaking from my own experience as a pedestrian is how bad the majority of cyclist are at social distancing when cycling past, having no regard on narrower pathways or shared pathways and even refusing to use the roads when they are relatively empty.

people sweating near / around you is one of the easiest ways to catch something. I popped out for a ride on my local trails and there was so many people out and the single track so narrow i was stopping every 5 minutes to let people pass. Bare in mind the routes I normally go are pretty much empty

I was thinking it may be safer to walk in the road.
