Since March cycling in Richmond Park has been restricted as a result of lockdown and the 'C' word. From today cycling will be allowed once more during opening hours - during the week.
I was in Richmond Park a few weeks ago when trying to get somewhere else. Walking my bike in I soon had to walk it back out again and find an alternative route skirting the outside.
Back in March the Royal Parks, the organisation who look after Richmond Park, said that riders had not been sticking to social distancing guidance. Someone out there put in a freedom of information request that said park staff had seem cyclists cycling at excessive speed and using their mobiles while on the bike.
As yet there is no date for when cycling will be permitted during weekends so the carbon fibre, Lycra brigade will have to find somewhere else to go.
Stay safe out there people!!
