Some interesting, if not agressive, feedback .....

 

 

 

Would like to hear how others would have worded their representation .... bearing in mind some will try to oppose this, and that the proposal needs to stand up to scrutiny.  Such scrutiny WILL focus on the potential risks of spreading the virus !  "limited range" and "limited exposure" was always going to be part of the process.

LOL and the gov is going to allow exercise without these conditions. Ask for 2hrs they give you 1.

Idiots.

Its not restricted in other countries like Australia and NZ or the UK as long as social distancing is respected.

The list indicate where riding would make sense if it was a hard lockdown.

Arg tog. Could they not just let the Gov come with some proposal? Now PPA want to suggest rules?

 

 

The government.

 

Is this the same government that's been robbing us blind and destroying every single thing they come into contact with? That government? 

 

Thanks but I'd rather have the PPA put forward suggestions.

Only comment - I wish it could be 30km (point 4) - that's about 2 hours out and back (also get me to Cape Point and back 58km from my house). Point 3 I am sure many people would prefer 3 hours - I hardly ever ride more than 2 hours. Finally should PPA make suggestion or just leave it as exercise suggested by the president, let it be - and see if the President come up with restriction? That's a question!

 

Seems I posted the PPA article under "Coronavirus and training outdoors"at the same time Press office post it in this new thread! Are they watching me?
