I'm back on the bike thanks to C-19.
 
Thanks to the current "Stay At Home" orders in my state (Louisiana) our street grid in New Orleans have become a mostly deserted cycling utopia. Given that our medical professionals have enough to worry about, I have hung up the skates and skateboards in favor of my LHT with 2" rubber. Not that I have ever been to an ER for a skate (or bike) injury, but I sure am not starting now. I started 2020 with 66 straight days commuting to work by skates and longboards with ZERO bike rides. Then this. Happy I kept a couple of bikes. Sadly, I might show up here again.

Since my workplace shut down I just ride a 10-mile loop on bike paths before working from home. Nothing fancy.

Stay healthy all!

You cannot get biking out of your system. It keeps coming back, just like the fever that C-19 leaves you with.... just doesn't go away.
A LHT trucker with 2" tires? :eek: That will but the fancy gravel bikes to shame.

Quite the utilitarian bike you have there, I'm jealous.

Me 2. Don't know when I'll get my hands on mine this year.
