W/Ending Who Knows When

Postby JulezV2 » 10 Feb 2021, 16:33

Wow a foil hitting the ground and rider going equivalent of OTB on a MTB. Thats hopefully a rare accident and one in which he will recover as showing some movement from the reports.

Sad news in both cases. Maybe a case of loosing 'currency' in the sports we do due to sheer lack of participation? Need to take great care coming back and not assuming we are where we left off.

Seems Wales had met metrics to be officially Tier 3. Thats good news. Hospitals still busy thats not good news and presume the WA will need quite some headway to ease up, maybe wanting to work inline with England this time ?

Fingers crossed.

Go safe...

Great vid Marc and nostalgia for whats been going on now for over a year and Wales being hit hardest with lockdowns yet having also having suffered the highest COVID rates.

At least the trails are getting less muddy now and its feeling a little like spring (at times).

Just waiting for Mr Dreadful to re-introduce the utterly useless 5 mile travel limit. Well useful if you live within 5 miles of a beach but hopeless (empirically) in terms of stopping any spread of COVID.

Thankfully no, tbh there have been very very few kiteable days over the last two months. There have been many days with a decent forecast but they’ve ended up being too light, cross off or pissing down.

I’m just preying the wind gods align for when this lockdown is finally lifted 8-)

As nice as that sounds we first need to get out of this never ending Welsh Lockdown before we can plan anything.
Then we need to get on top of the back log of lessons from last year and now also the bookings now coming in ahead of another year of very little foreign travel.

Looks like we will get a 5mile travel restriction which is good for a few and utter crap for many

I think I saw they were trying to decide whether to allow local travel or travel throughout Wales. We will know next week!

Be nice to be able to get down the road through. 5 miles gets me to Rest Bay.

Fortunately I've moved out of my house and until I get a new one I'm living in the camper van.

Lol I really don’t think .9 will bother them.

5 miles gets me 4 miles into England ;-)

Lets see if England allows 'unlimited' travel to exercise before Wales lifts its predicted % miles to exercise.

The race in on...Easter is looming.
