22 August 2020 Ride – suspended

We are on a positive downward trend with 179 new Covid19 infections and nine deaths announced today. We are however still in a Level 3 restrictions situation. This means we are only able to ride in pairs observing social distancing on and off the bike.

I guess we all are looking forward to things returning to normal, whatever the new normal will be.

The forecast for Saturday doesn’t look promising with cold winds and rain in the morning. Rug up if you still decide to ride.

Forecast to be cloudy with very high (95%) chance of showers. Snow above 500 metres. The chance of thunderstorms. Gusty winds and possible hail. Winds northwesterly 25 to 40 km/h turning westerly in the morning then decreasing to 20 to 30 km/h in the evening. Overnight temperatures falling to between zero and 4 with daytime temperatures reaching between 5 and 11.
