Wednesday

Post by SteveW » Mon May 11, 2020 7:45 am

I live in England.
On Wednesday can I go for a leisure ride (Within England) on my Motorcycle?
Edit......
As long as I get off and walk for 20 yards then get back on it?

Just been listening to Dominic Raab on TV & he said you can drive as far as you like to visit somewhere you like to go for exercise but complicated if you live on border as now Wales & Scotland are playing it differently, to be honest he was like a rabbit in headlights evidently there’s a 50 page doc due out at 2pm to guide us!! No quarantine for Irish or French if arriving in UK, which I can’t understand either there’s quarantine or there isn’t??

A big point of the lockdown was to prevent people ending up in hospital due to non-Corona related things, such as motorcycling, work, even driving.

If you stay at home, stay local, the chances of you injuring yourself is small - a hospital is the last place you want to be cos you will probably catch the lurg....

PS I have been riding my bicycle so have taken a calculated risk/choice on this.

The French won’t be quarantining EU, Schengen or UK arrivals.
Not sure why it’s ok, myself.

I've been using my motorcycle for transport.......I've injured myself running and cycling.....but never on a motorcycle.
Although, during the lockdown I've noticed car/van drivers generally driving faster and with less attention to the road.

Here in E Lancs the Fiesta/Focus ST brigade have been having a field day on the quiet roads.

It is sheer lunacy to open the Chanel and Irish Sea crossings to the public. IMHO.
