Largo bicycle shop sees businesses booming amid pandemic

LARGO, Fla. (WFLA) – Dan Block has been getting quite the workout lately. Block owns the D & S Bicycle shop on Walsingham Road in Largo and the coronavirus has him working overtime.

“It’s been crazy. Everybody that got their bikes that they’ve had them,” said Block, who fixes those bikes regularly. “Or they buy them at Walmart and they want them assembled, and hey, I’ll do that.”

Dan Block has owned a bike shop in Pinellas County for 42-years and remembers the last time there was a boom in business like this one.

Block explains with the gyms and beaches closed, there are few places to go work out and now many choose to take a bike ride.

Block specializes in bike rentals and sells a few used bikes on the side, but lately, he can’t keep any used inventory in stock.

“I’m limited choices right now,” said Block. “I don’t sell my rental fleet because that’s counterproductive.”

A viewer sent in a picture from a local big box store where the bicycle shelves were nearly empty.

Mary Lou Heym just bought her new bike. She winters in Pinellas County and spends the summers up north. She too is struggling with finding ways to occupy the time.

“Well I think everybody has the same idea,” said Heym. “You can’t sit inside and watch the news all day. That would make you crazy.”

Block says he appreciates the business, but after several weeks of working 80-hour weeks, he would like a break reminiscing on the last time there was a surge like this, but he was a bit younger then.

“When they first opened the Pinellas Trail,” said Block. “Everybody and their brother was getting out their bikes that they hadn’t ridden in years.”

Vehicle sees ‘heavy damage’ in Derby rollover


DERBY — A Route 8 north on ramp in the city was briefly closed Friday night after a rollover crash.

Firefighters and medics were dispatched to the call on Route 8 north near Exit 16 at 8:48 p.m., according to initial dispatch reports.

A first responder in the area chimed in on the radio waves, indicating he could swing by the crash site and report back to the responding units on what to expect.


He confirmed a rollover soon after, but clarified the location — on the entrance ramp for Route 8 north off of Main Street. Moments later, fire units started to get to the scene.

Fire officials at the crash site confirmed it was a one-car rollover with “heavy damage” to the vehicle. Units on scene reported all occupants were out of the vehicle.

Bicycle Therapeutics Sees Hammer Chart Pattern: Time to Buy? – April 8, 2020

Bicycle Therapeutics plc (BCYC Free Report)  has been struggling lately, but the selling pressure may be coming to an end soon. That is because BCYC recently saw a Hammer Chart Pattern which can signal that the stock is nearing a bottom.

What is a Hammer Chart Pattern?

A hammer chart pattern is a popular technical indicator that is used in candlestick charting. The hammer appears when a stock tumbles during the day, but then finds strength at some point in the session to close near or above its opening price. This forms a candlestick that resembles a hammer, and it can suggest that the market has found a low point in the stock, and that better days are ahead.

Other Factors

Plus, earnings estimates have been rising for this company, even despite the sluggish trading lately. In just the past 60 days alone 3 estimates have gone higher, compared to none lower, while the consensus estimate has also moved in the right direction.

Estimates have actually risen so much that the stock now has Zacks Rank #2 (Buy) suggesting this relatively unloved stock could be due for a breakout soon. This will be especially true if BCYC stock can build momentum from here and find a way to continue higher of off this encouraging trading development.
