Boris Johnson’s seven-mile experience and the following furore highlighted how the foundations on staying native for train aren’t workable for cyclists.
A minister and the pinnacle of the Met Police have already mentioned if “you can get there under your own steam” and “if you start and finish at your front door,” then it’s in all probability OK.
That’s adequate for me, however we’ll by no means all agree. One reader obtained in contact to say how disillusioned he was with final week’s editorial encouraging individuals to experience, thus placing pressure on the NHS. However train is allowed, and if everybody all of a sudden stopped the long-term penalties could be extreme. Biking can be an inexpensive, accessible mode of transport for 1000’s.
Then, after I’d invited CW5000 riders to a meet up on Zwift to finish the January problem of a two-hour experience, reader Nick emailed to say: “I don’t ride on a turbo – it’s not cycling.” This even if we’re in lockdown and never allowed to experience in teams.
We are going to by no means all agree, and that’s OK. No matter you do, observe the rules as finest you may, experience nicely inside your limits, and keep protected.
To revel within the ludicrous nature of all of it, flip to web page 58 for Dr Hutch’s tackle it.
