With the weather heating up and Stage 4 lockdown still in place the DHHS has clarified the difference between a Mid Ride Snack and a PICNIC. A Picnic is very much not allowed under the rules. However for your health and those of your household or the chosen +1 from another house you are riding with its important to remember to hydrate and stay fuelled. The safest place to take your Mid Ride Snack is away from the bike path or road you were on so as to keep to social distancing rules. A nice patch of grass is often best. And as we are in the shoulder season and the ground may be damp that blanket you were carrying in case of sudden storms also makes the perfect ground protection. So to recap. Its a no to picnics but a solid YES to a Mid Ride Snack. Enjoy! 😉 ... See MoreSee Less
So its exciting that the next phase of the MTBA national champs is announced - Maydena, Tasmania. Those Taswegians have all the secret training time right now but with luck us viral Victorians will get it together and boarders can open.
We have just spoken to the Spirit of Tasmania and if you are making a booking now, should at the time of your booking the boarders not be open you get a full refund minus any booking and credit card fees.
For all of us in the Lock down areas Masks from Wednesday will be compulsory. However when riding the commonsense approach would indicate you wont need to wear it. Maybe worth carrying one to wear if you stop for a chat.
As always stay safe and stay clean and with luck we can get some racing happening in a few months. ... See MoreSee Less
