This very well could be the ONLY day you see a quote, so I hope you enjoy it.
Patrick Lefevere, legendary cycling manager, on people still riding in groups in Belgium.
“Every crisis offers opportunities, and this is evident now: many people apparently see the coronavirus crisis as an opportunity to behave like an idiot,”.
He said it, not me.

And there are so many, you know, idiots!
BTW, there’s a special place hell for all the idiots that are hoarding supplies.
We haven’t heard of hoarders in France but that doesn’t mean it’s not happening.
One of the few times I agree with him.
He IS a straight talker, no question.
Regarding the danger of cyclists falling off and needing medical attention, I fell over in the garden today and smashed my nose. Luckily I didn’t need medical attention but it was still stupidity in action. I plead guilty.
Oh dear. Glad it’s not serious. A cousin of mine in Canada cut her finger up yesterday and had to go to Emergency. She felt terribly guilty but was taken care of quickly and not called any names 😉
That was good. It is too much to imagine that accidents will magically cease.
Cycled past the beach near home on the weekend, it was PACKED! 😖
I’ve been watching with interest how Australia is managing (or not) this crisis. Every country seems to be going the same route, i.e. waiting till the virus is beyond control to take meaningful action.
You’d think our govt would learn from the mistakes (and what works) from other countries, but no we keep plodding along…
We are split into solo, maybe two people at a time… my wife and I ride outside together regularly… but a full group?! Stupid is as stupid does, I guess.
Indeed. I usually have the sense that everyone is doing what we are through this thing, but it’s obviously not the case.
