Hi Folks

Despite the somewhat confusing and vague (in my opinion) updated guidelines issued yesterday I don't think we have a safe and secure basis for a group ride out

Depending on how you read them we can ride, but not in groups and only to and from work, essential business and to a place of exercise.

I don't think a significant number of cafes and pubs will be able to open by then, and with social distancing still place both day time and evening socials will be impossible

So I think it's time to say this is one for 2021.

In that way folks can get their money back if hey have accommodation booked etc

I will give people a few days to to come back to me, but would welcome a quick feedback from as many of you who have said you are coming as possible

Cheers

Tony

Understood and accepted, I think under the circumstances it is for the best. If there is a sudden upturn and a miracle cure is found etc I am sure that we can always make some adhoc meet up plans but if I am being honest I think that is a virtually impossible situation. Cheers Tony, here's to 2021.

Ahhh the year is becoming a right off anyway. Don't know if I'd get the accomodation money back though as I didn't pay the extra for free cancellation. Got a ferry to France booked in 3 weeks time but, that too will probably be forfeited unless it doesn't sail.
You've done the correct thing Tony nonetheless and we'll have to make it up some other time with the get together.

Hi Tony.

It’s the right thing to do.
I think we are likely to be in the same boat for Big Mac in Orkney (If you pardon the pun) in the nearish future.

Coming out of this lockdown isn’t going to be quick or easy by the looks of it.

Government advice (on accommodation) takes us up to the 1st June at the moment and this is quoted in the following link.

https://www.jdwetherspoon.com/contact/faqs/uk-coronavirus-covid-19-infection.

I “think” the government review this and likely push this date back for a few weeks every few weeks.

Eventually (unless the government advice changes) this date will be pushed back beyond the date we are booked and we “should” be able to follow the guidelines in the link and have options to re-book / get a refund (even if you have a non-refundable booking I’d like to think) etc.

It’s a crap time for everyone but if you’re reading this you’re still alive.
Hopefully you and yours won’t contract and/or help to spread this horrible virus.
Sadly there are many who aren’t so lucky.

Keep calm and carry on (social distancing responsibly of course)

Cheers
Rosco

Hi Rob, yep 2020 is turning into a bit of a nightmare! I should have been taking the bike over to Ireland at the end of the month and that has been canned too!

In terms of your accommodation, could it be deferred to next year. My aim is to have a WoW2021!

I think even with the relaxation from today, still no group rides, cafes, pubs and social distancing etc it is the right call. I am looking to run it in 2021, so if the accommodation won't refund see if they will give you a deferral or credit note for 12 months?

Yep, perhaps an adhoc ride out later in the year could be salvaged from the wreckage of 2020!

If not I will run a WoW2021
