    I’m still riding every day on the empty streets. I’m feeling like a desperado too. I just hope “the things that are pleasin’ me, won’t hurt me somehow.”

      Hi Greg. Enjoy those lonesome rides while you can.
      I’m trying to guess where you are. Minnesota?
      Stay safe and healthy.

    Great to hear from you again. I’ve been wondering how you are doing down there, and educational too! I didn’t realize you rode on the left.

      Hi Scott. I’ve been well, thanks. Busy with this and that. I’ve done a few long rides – one was 200km – but fewer rides overall this year. None at all now and for the next few weeks at least I reckon.

      Malaysia has a lot of holdovers from the time it was a British colony. Including driving / riding on the left.

    Ooh, parking garage floors can be so slippery! Glad you didn’t slide out on a downhill corner. Good to see you – stay safe – we’re still allowed to exercise alone outdoors for now here, so cycling’s still ‘in’ 🙂

      “Yes,” this isn’t a place to set Strava records! The floors are non-slippy as long as they are not wet.

      How I wish we could still ride outside. Enjoy it while you can Em.

    And so, it seems, wherever there is a place to ride, we will find it ;’-).

      I now regret giving my indoor trainer away 🤣

    Where have all the cars gone? I assume it is a work or shopping centre car park and things are in lockdown.

    Good song link.

      Hi Tony. I live in a year-old apartment block. Not many units in the building are owner-occupied. Quite a few units are managed as homestays or Airbnbs. Most of the homestay / Airbnb tenants are international tourists who use public transport rather than a vehicle rented from Avis, Hertz etc.
      Which means the multi-level car park is mostly empty at the best of times. Now that we are under a Restricted Movement Order, the only vehicles in the car park are the few owned by the owners who actually live here.
      One upside is that I can park where ever I like 🤣
