Gas stations and auto repair places: essential. Bike shops: not

In the Bay Area they've gone into "shelter in place". But it's not, tons and tons of exceptions, Tesla, for example. A long list of essential services that can stay open include gas stations, auto repair, and hardware stores. Oh, and apparently lawyers, because, yeah, they write the rules. But bike shops have to close down.

Folks, make sure you stock up on tubes, patch kits, and spare parts. Oh wait, most of us already have.

There's a MUP that runs right behind my property. If it comes down to it. I may have to put a sign up on it with "Atelier Velo" and an arrow pointing to my shop. I can take payment in eggs, booze, and kombucha. I have use for the first two, the last can be used to barter for other things, because Portland.
