Bikes Are The New Toilet Paper.

March 05, 2021 by Tony Vuong

Forget about bulk buying of toilet paper during the pandemic. Bike sales have more than tripled in the last 6 months of 2020.

Nat Bromhead from bicyclingaustralia.com.au wrote an interesting assessment on the boom in cyclists across Australia in an article titled “State by State Stats: Traffic Count Shows Major Cycling Boom” https://www.bicyclingaustralia.com.au/news/state-by-state-stats-traffic-count-shows-major-cycling-boom

The indicators are strong pointing to the need for states to consider additional bike lanes and riding paths. With the increase in cyclists riding for leisure or in a competition format, the popularity of bikes cannot be ignored. 

Every state has taken their planning and environmental committees to task to work with cycling bodies to improve on existing and new cycle ways.
 
In a recent article from the ABC, Edwina Seselja reported on the shortage in supply for bike shops and wholesalers, with retailers selling out of their Christmas stocks as early as August 2020.
