Pedaling COVID-19

The sale and use of bicycles skyrocket in a Europe that prefers them amid Covid-19

More remote working, demand of wider WiFi coverage and an explosive rose of delivery services count among many changes in our lives–and markets– during the Covid-19 confinement. And this far is clear to see that some of these changes will remain in the foreseeable future: companies that do not require workers to go to the office on a daily basis, now opt for permanent remote working (and therefore save on renting unnecessary big spaces). The skyrocketed demand for bicycles in Europe on the first two quarters of 2020, could account for one of those long-effect changes.

The industry has yet to fully understand why such an increase is due–in Britain alone bicycle travel is estimated to have increased roughly 300 percent during the forced closure–, or to figure whether this is a direct consequence of the pandemic or a phenomenon that was brewing and that the Covid-19 accelerated.

French announcement to establish the bike as the means of transportation for de-escalation–same that Spain looks at with appreciation–has not actually influenced since at the date of the announcement, in May, the flood of bike trips had exploded and shops, declared essential services in England, had long waiting lines already.

Facts such as cycling helps decontaminate, that itself implies exercising and a world-friendly lifestyle, are no news for us. Albeit we had not realized, nevertheless, that it is one of the safest means of transportation against getting infected with the coronavirus. And in socially distanced times, public transportation implies a high risk.

All these are airs of change that promote the urban cycling industry and the trade of bicycle repairers, which are now, finally, essential.
