Lockdown Cycling 2020

Lockdown Cycling. Despite Coronavirus and lockdown it was still possible (and encouraged) to cycle locally for exercise. Later, restrictions were lifted and cycle rides further afield were permitted.  My 1000 mile total (to date)  was made up of  rides around the Meon Valley, along the Meon Valley Trail, frequent rides around Gosport and  Lee on the Solent, trips to the shops and what has become an annual ride around the Isle of Wight.

Even the government (and local authorities) have been pushing the cycling theme  “Thousands of miles of new protected bike lanes, cycle training for everyone and bikes available on prescription will be rolled out under new plans to overhaul cycling and walking in England launched by Prime Minister Boris Johnson today (Tuesday 28 July).”

Sadly some of the local pop up schemes have been dropped (one such scheme after a local councillor had a ‘discussion’ with the Highways Authority.
