We use Slack as our workplace communication tool at Pinkbike and we have a #randoms channel which we use to share an assortment of videos and stories from all corners of the cycling world and beyond... We thought a couple of the moments from the past week were too good not to share with a wider audience, so here are some of the highlights.
Shipping delays in Shanghai
Despite the effect of the COVID pandemic starting to lessen across the globe we are still facing huge supply chain issues. As Shanghai remains in a near-total lockdown commercial ships are stuck at sea waiting to drop off their goods. The graph above demonstrates the massive recent increase in ships waiting to load or offload cargo. It's not clear whether there are any bikes involved directly here but this kind of logjam will have an effect that will reverberate throughout the shipping industry.
This is all the ships waiting to load or offload cargo.
