It’s going to depend on what region you reside in. Races and rides are happening in my region. Not as normal but I raced just about as much this year as I would in any given year. Group rides are back on right now. Not 100% normal but pretty close.
As for 2021 it’s probably going to be a transition year. I’m expecting pandemic vaccine hopes to peak, subside, and eventually fade. We don’t have a flu vaccine that’s very effective and we’ll never have a coronavirus vaccine that’s very effective. Treatments will continue to improve and IFR/CFR will continue to grind lower.
People ask me a lot of questions that start with ‘When this pandemic is over…’ This pandemic is never going to be over. The flu is never over. The common cold is never over. Coronavirus is never going to be over. It will no longer be novel but it’s never going to be over.
So the big change in 2021 will be psychological. As a society we’ll transition away from trying to defeat coronavirus and move toward how to coexist with it while minimizing risk and ameliorating fatality rate. Historically pandemics last 24 to 36 months. So we’re maybe just to not quite half way through.
