Essential travel and local exercise does not include driving to locations and going for walks. It does not include lycra-clad leisure cycling on the now quieter roads. It isn't just about preventing the spread of the virus but also reducing the burden on essential services. 2/3
I’m agree it’s not right to cycle in a group but why Lycra clad?
That's probably been writen by some ignorant copy merchant.
And hardly has the force of law.
I doubt the police will be feeling your clothing/knickers.
One might think that they were subconsciously thinking of chain gangs but I think everyone has got the message that group rides are off.
Would whoever wrote that twaddle like folk to go out in their pajamas/tracky bottoms and take a fall getting them stuck in the chain?
I'm a pretty general purpose cyclist but was out in full black lycra top and bottom today in south London.
I wouldn't worry about that bonkers copy - just be sensible and british - keep your distance.
Am sure we will be fine, London or Derbyshire.
