As far as I can tell. If you are allowed to stay in a b&b or go on a self catering holiday, March 29th I think, then you must be able to travel other than essential.
I'm sure details will be made clearer soon enough.

Does anyone have an idea from the latest lockdown announcement when we are likely to be able to go out on our bikes?

You can go out whenever you like, don't be fooled by the government or main stream media into thinking you are breaking the law or somehow killing people by doing so.

We're on the same boat here in Eire, if not worse.

We might get some leeway on April 5th, but I don't trust dates nor the useless government plan (or lack of).

I can definitely tell you that people are absolutely fed up though and while weather has been atrocious lately, last Sunday was actually decent and folks were all over the place. Bunch of bikes on the road too... 

We normally get a few days break after shitty weather and then the gards come back out in force and people calm down again.

Feels like living in north korea really....

Well, apart from the fact you would be breaking the law, if you happen to have a crash and finish up in A&E, not only will you get very little sympathy from overworked and exhausted NHS staff, you might get Covid as a bonus.

Better, actually. You've had half the number of deaths per head of population that the UK has.

But different countries record in different ways. No way to really compare apples for apples.
