Brought out our bikes and aired them up. We keep 5 bikes so our grown up kids and their friends can go biking along the trails with us in our area. A little lube on all the pivot points got the shifters operating smoothly. Looking forward to the season and the end of the lock downs. I presently ride solo. laugh

I went out for a ride last night. Got to the top of my street and ran over what looked like a mesquite thorn! mad Will head to Walmart in a bit to grab a new inner tube.

Did an 18 mile trip this morning and my knees are now telling me I should have started slow.

Agree. WM would be the last place I would go to and risk getting infected all for an inner tube.

We have been riding our beach cruisers every day through the neighborhood. In the beginning of te pandemic we were not seeing much bicycle or foot traffic but over the past week we have seen a huge uptick in people walking and riding their bicycles.

My son, my friends and I ride year round. The trails are busier than ever right now with everyone being home.

Two bike shops I frequent had crowds in the parking lots waiting to get their bikes tuned up or repaired.
