Pondering post-COVID 19


New GORE Fabian Cancellara kit. Review forthcoming on PEZ. I know depending on what part of the world you live in, you may or may not be able to ride. Fortunately, here (Arlington, VA USA) we can still ride. Most of my riding has been solo with the occasional two-up with a friend. I’m comfortable with up to four of us, especially knowing that everyone else has been in stay-at-home status and except for essential stuff (like grocery shopping) hasn’t been out and about. It’s actually been pretty easy to maintain a social distance by occupying each side of a lane and staggering a bit — because there are almost no cars out. Hope everyone is safe and well. #alonetogether #wereallinthistogether #wellgetthroughthistogether Cheers!
