Trevor Noah enjoys some weekend down time and hits the streets of NYC for a bike ride with a friend
He has been hosting a modified version of the news satire program, The Daily Show With Trevor Noah, from his home ever since the COVID-19 crisis was deemed a pandemic in mid-March.
The comedian and political commentator, 36, has previously stated that he often likes to get around the Big Apple on an electric bike he bought earlier in the year.

The Johannesburg, South Africa native was spotted cruising the streets not long after the sunshine had given way to the evening.
Opting for casual-cool in the fashion department, Noah wore blue denim jeans with a black sweatshirt and black sneakers.
His buddy kept pace on his own bicycle in camouflage pants, black sweatshirt and black sneakers and baseball cap.

It’s not clear whether Noah was riding an electric bike on this night.
In an interview in February, he revealed that he bought a Dutch brand that ‘doesn’t do all the work’ for you, which means riders do have to do some pedaling.
‘It’s great for getting around New York,’ he said as reported by Men’s Journal.
‘I’ve started riding out to Brooklyn and exploring spots I don’t normally go.’
Safety first: The South African native has been hosting a modified version of the news satire program, The Daily Show With Trevor Noah, since March due to the COVID-19 pandemic; the home version has been dubbed: The Daily Social Distancing Show
Noah took over for Jon Stewart and began hosting The Daily Show beginning on September 28, 2015.
But in the wake of the coronavirus crisis he and producers have had to get creative to keep broadcasting safely without a live studio audience.
After initially doing The Daily Social Distancing Show from his home for Comedy Central’s website and the show’s YouTube channel March 18, The Daily Show returned to linear television with the same home-bound concept five days later.

In an interview for Variety’s September issue, he revealed he’s in no hurry to return to The Daily Show studio, especially in the wake of a recent increase in COVID-19 cases.
‘I don’t want to put [the production staff] in a position where they feel like they have to say yes, or they might be injured,’ he said.
‘I do not wish to make the same mistake America made, and that is rushing to go back to normal when nothing is normal.’
Noah has been romantically linked to actress Minka Kelly over the last couple of months. Although they have been seen together arriving at his New York City apartment, the pair have not publicly confirmed their relationship.
