As far as planning a time Phil, I Just been deciphering the mess of Statistics published for Wales and it looks like we have been bouncing around at the same level of new infections for more than 2 weeks , so for me that reinforces my belief that its about as good as its gonna get right now.

If I was keen on a meet up , Id do it as soon as possible.
Personally I'm ok on me lonesome

We've met up with vintage bike friends locally 3 times recently, but that's what we're limiting to. We've been told about a Velocette 'gathering' near Leominster, but we're not happy about going there - cafe used for all kinds of petrolhead meetings - everyone will be behaving 'as normal' and leaving their little grey cells at home. Given that our 'normal' supermarket is 18 miles away, we're using that as our 'local' benchmark, and I think that's very normal distance to travel for a shop when you're in Powys.
We want there to be less pressure about travelling a bit further in the countryside so we can go and see the RSPB reserves (38 miles) and Osprey nests (45 miles) etc. (And that would bring Sweetlamb in range, where I've got 4 dates pencilled in July on various KTMs and Yams :D )

Looks like next Monday july 6th will be legal for you, though personaly I think waiting till its legal is a mistake as its likely it was safer 2 weeks ago than it will be by then.

We may be able to travel but still wont be able to meet as a group thats my understanding anyway. I will settle for that at the moment.

Yee-har, this means I can visit Wales again rather than just sneaking through Chepstow to get to the Forest of Dean :mrgreen:

I'm meeting someone outside the owls nest tomorrow - bought a softer seat for my husky from a chap near carmarthen - so hopefully I'll have a first-hand look at all the new seating.
