During this Coronavirus crisis bicycles are an easy way to get
exercise outdoors while social distancing correctly. Cycling enables
you to travel without using public transport, and in relative
isolation. Moreover, with all this motor traffic now off the road
cycling has never been safer.
The good news is that bicycle shops are remaining open so that key
workers, and the rest of us, are able to purchase a bike or get our
own bike repaired.
In light of the present crisis we are all facing, I hope some of you
posters on this newsgroup who haven't previously had a good word to
say for cycling will stop and reconsider your views on the subject.
It's obvious that Boris and our government recognise the importance of
cycling - if you missed out on toilet rolls, don't miss out on your
lycra gear as well.
Halfords is to close down all its cycle republic shops permanently.
Halfords say the closures, which are due to complete in the first half
of the next financial year, will cost the firm between ?25 million and
?35 million. Grief - I'm glad that's nothing to do with me.
