Bicycle Shortage Nationwide

 With people steering clear from public transit and other opting for healthier commute due to COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic finding a bike is a bit challenging. Also because of the quarantine, sports and health clubs are closed, sports seasons were cancelled and children were kept home from school.

According to a Walmart executive, bicycle sales have been stronger because of warm weather. “We have been enjoying serving customers with their bike and bike accessory needs throughout these difficult times,” Reid Thornton, Walmart senior buying manager-wheels, said in an email. “Our customers want to get outside of the house and exercise and enjoy sunshine with the entire family.”

Adding to the problems is the closing down of Asian supply chain for more than two months which many U.S. retailers rely on. Nothing was being produced or shipped or anything. People wants outdoor activities to fight off the boredome of stay-at-home orders.

Best Filtered Face Mask For Bike Riding

 With the Coronavirus (COVID19) crisis we need to protect ourselves it's terrifying to catch that very deadly and very communicable disease. CDC recommends  wearing cloth face coverings whenever you are in public specially when social distancing measures are difficult to maintain like for example in grocery stores and pharmacies especially if you are in a place which have have a lot of community-based transmission. CDC also said that the novel coronavirus can spread between people interacting in close proximity like speaking, coughing, or sneezing even if those people are not exhibiting symptoms. So, it means you'll never know since the virus carier could have no symptoms. We need to be protected, we need to wear face mask especially if your immune system is much weaker.

If you’re familiar with face masks then you know all about Vogmasks and Cambridge masks both are really well-known manufacturers of high quality masks that can filter bacteria, viruses, pollen, and chemicals. Vogmask is the top dog in mask, it has N99 filter layer, carbon filter, and exhale valve. It can protect from 99% of airborne particles over .3 microns. Vogmask is widely used in urban areas that have high levels of air pollution. While Cambridge Mask has a 99.6% average filtration of viruses, 99.77% average filtration against bacteria and 99.7% average particulate filtration down to 0.3 microns. The company also said  that the final layer of the mask has been developed by the UK’s Ministry of Defence and filters out viruses, bacteria and gas pollution such as Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), Ozone, Benzathine and Formaldehyde.

If you need a mask now unfortunately, you will have a hard time to buy Vogmask or Cambridge masks.
