« on: February 22, 2021, 11:36:09 PM »
Does anyone have an idea from the latest lockdown announcement when we are likely to be able to go out on our bikes?

Without checking the published legislation my initial guess, for England, would be 29th March when the government will drop the "Stay at Home" message and will instead encourage people to stay local wherever they can.

But stay local? What does that mean? What is local.

Inverness is local to me compared to Istanbul😊

Boris has laid out a 4 point check list -

1. Salt washed off the road     :001:

2. Temp above 9degs     :001:

3. Dry    :001:

4. I can still get into my bike gear   :007:

Other than that , go for it..........

The problem is living near the coast like I do, I'm in danger of being stopped by the local constabulary, as a number of 'visitors' have found out and been fined recently,
Just need some clear guidance, although I believe the current travel restrictions end on the 29th March.

Essential journeys are allowed and always have been, when it stops raining I may have to go shopping on the Tiger for food and other essentials, without the Sat nav fitted I may get lost on the way home!! :492: :492:

That is 6th January.

Which covers this current lockdown as is, none of yesterdays announcements appear to be going to change that and I'm sure the BMF will be on this and update when they conform any change, as they have been doing to date. :027:
