KENT ISLAND, Md. — Paul Lombardo, owner of Bike Doctor on Kent Island, is busy. Unlike most businesses, his is going through the roof! They have already sold out of their early innovatory and still reordering.

Now that people aren’t going to gyms, they have discovered their old bikes and repairs are at an all time high.

"Almost every manufacture in the US is out of bicycles," Lombardo said.

Lombardo is sure this won’t last forever, but it still won’t be easy on the backside of this pandemic.

"It is going to level out and once the product becomes available, if and when that date is there won’t be that mad rush of getting product every other week and trying to meet a demand that’s not there is challenging," he explained.
