It'll be news to nobody that COVID-19 has turned the world's sense of normality on its head in the past 12 months. A year ago, we were all beginning to learn what exactly COVID-19 was, while trusting - hoping - that washing our hands a little more regularly and trying not to touch our faces would be the solution. Fast forward to today and the world has spent the majority of the past 12 months either in varying levels of lockdown or with some form of restriction on everyday life. 

With it being North America Week here on Cyclingnews, we wanted to touch on the ways the cycling landscape has been affected by a year of unprecedented disruption to normality. We reached out to various cycling-related businesses based in the USA to see how they've been affected and adapted in the face of unprecedented adversity.
