Default Bike shops run out of stock as sales boom with 200% increase aspeople try to avoid using public transport

Last month or so Wal-Mart started keeping chain lube, inner tubes and
tires in a locked cabinet like they do ammo.


It's too much trouble to ask for help wearing a mask so don't bother.


Are you making a point about UK cycling?


Are tires lubes and tubes still out on display in big box stores in the UK? This CV-19 bike boom is starting to become a hassle in the desert SW. I have to go to Yuma to get anything in a hurry.

I've dedicated my life to making cycling cheaper and now market forces are making it more expensive.

This is _not_ progress!

Go into an ASDA.

Asda is not Wal-Mart. For a start it does not supply ammo, as described by
Bret.
