A Moment of Solitude

This crisis is affecting every corner of humanity. In these times, we need to be responsible humans and adhere to the guidelines provided by our local authorities. Bikes are what bring us together, and while we need to limit group activities now, we are all in this together and will ride with one another again. If you can still enjoy the outdoors on a bike, please do so by yourself and make good choices along the way.

For those that may be concerned about the making of this video during a time like this. We shot this two weeks ago when this crisis was just beginning in the United States. We could see the wave coming, and knew we would all be feeling the stress soon. We want to assure you we went about making this video responsibly, with only three people involved, and Lars purposely rode at a pace that was safe for him. We understand that riding bikes is inherently dangerous, and at this point hope that all of you will enjoy this video, but accept that going out for a ride right now may not be the best decision. We hope you all take this serious, and proceed cautiously, for one day in the future we will be able to get back outside and ride with our friends.

I think we all could use a moment of solitude right now. It may not be in the form of a bike ride, but a walk, a deep breath, or just turning off the phone.

If you need anything from us, Transition Bikes is still operating. Administrative employees are working from home and our shipping department is running a one person crew. All orders will ship out within 1-business day as normal. You can reach out to us at [email protected] with any questions.
