Well thanks and you have yourself a good mtb adventure in Colorado as well. You west coast US guys have lot's of great options if you are willing to travel a bit.OnTheRivet wrote: ↑Sun Aug 15, 2021 2:16 amNope, headed to Colorado to ride the mtb. Hope you have a great trip, ride the Passo Fedaia - Marmolada for me.Mr.Gib wrote: ↑Sat Aug 14, 2021 7:18 pmthat sucks, sorry to hear this. It will be interesting to see what other jurisdiction go the lockdown route. The US has some real hotspots which might face the same fate but I wouldn't count on lockdowns in those districts. Spain has some problem areas.Andrew69 wrote: ↑Sat Aug 14, 2021 11:39 amThe state of New South Wales in Australia (most populous state) has now gone into a snap 7 day lock down
We already had the area of Greater Sydney in lockdown (Im in this area), but now its been extended state wide.
The distance we are allowed to travel for exercise has been steadily getting smaller over the last few weeks
Its gone from your local government area, to within 10km of your home, and from 12:01am monday morning, its now within 5 km of your home
Looks like I will be doing lots of lockdown laps around my suburb, which is rather boring , but at least with a new police crackdown on people travelling, the roads should be quite.
I guess I will be having a go at several Strava segments that I think the times are a bit soft on. Will see exactly where my fitness is at
Well guys, it's been a slice, I'll be off for a few weeks (NW Italy, yeah baby yeah). If I could ask a favour and maybe a few of you could babysit OnTheRivet for me. You don't have to do much, he's pretty good as supplying his own entertainment. Just make sure he doesn't miss his nap.
FWIW I am far West of the Dolomites so won't see the Fedaia etc. So it'll be Faunaria, Sempeyre, Dell'Agnello, Finestre, etc. In Barolo/Barbaresco as we speak. Italy is empty and silent. Zero tourists, only Italians checking out their own country and very few at that. Normally this area would be swarming with busloads of tourists at this time of year. Roads are empty and silent, town squares are nearly deserted. People are noticeably subdued and a little sad relative to my other times in Italy. It's a bit heartbreaking.
And btw, I highly recommend to everyone a trip to the vineyard regions of Piemonte. Mindblowing landscape with the vines in full greenery and grapes hanging. One of the most beautiful places I have ever seen. Great climbing, constantly up and down, 2 - 5km mostly, and very steep if you want it, saw 28% for a few meters today on some forgotten snake of a road that switchbacks its way up a wall of a vineyard.
