It would appear that there is no encouragement for long term planning as can be evidenced from the UK’s government on people currently returning from Spain. Possibly as a cyclist, ones immune system may build up Better than in a home environment. Certainly, gypsies and pikies don’t have the luxuries and home comforts of hygiene that most of us enjoy and CV 19 will be the last thing on their mind. I hope I haven’t overstepped the mark there in being PC. I would even argue that plumbers and sewage workers will have a better immune system than most people on account of what they are dealing with daily. I digress....I believe that the last lines from djb sum it up “but we don’t know how summer will be anywhere”. Perhaps I will have to be patient and await the outcome from Bojo & Co and Mr Covid before doing further planning.
Indeed you could well find yourself unable to cross a border without quarantining. I think we're heading towards that on the French/Spanish border now.
There's no evidence that cyclists have better than average immune systems. Indeed pushing yourself really hard, as performance athletes do, tends to depress your immune system. Neither is there any reason to believe that plumbers or sewage workers have immune systems which offer them protection from Covid-19.
One think that I'm pretty certain about is that the situation won't change for a very long time.
