Webinar: Bicycling is Essential – How Bicycle Shops Are Staying Open Under Stay at Home Orders

March 31, 2020 @ 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm EDT

This webinar is about the issue of bike shops being designated as essential businesses.

Scheduled speakers include:

  • Pete Piccolo from Bicycle Colorado, who successfully amended their state’s order to say the bicycle repair is essential.
  • Galen Mook from MassBike, who is currently working to bring additional clarity to Massachusetts’s order, but has already clarified that local communities can deem bicycle repair as essential.
  • Representatives from bicycle retailer Landry’s Bicycles and Chain Reaction Bicycles, who have been working to stay open and provide essential services to those who use bicycles as transportation.
  • PeopleForBikes who are working with the bicycle industry on this and other issues. They have an excellent spreadsheet of state orders affecting bicycling and numerous resources on industry efforts.
