The title above says ‘Save Lives, Ride at Home’. This is on the homepage of the FFC (Fédération Française de Cyclisme) and I assume is something we’ve all been doing in the country since they started advising it back in mid March. I certainly have been and have 30 straight trainer rides on Strava to prove it.
Well, things are progressing here and Spain, Italy and now France are going to see what happens when you let people out of the house, including cycling. Below is the latest recommendation from the FFC, which I think the government will listen to and that will mean that on May 11th (when the general ‘de-confinement’ starts) I’ll be on the road again – and yeah – just can’t wait to get on the road again….
There’s a lot of French below, but the important part is that the FFC is advising the authorities to let us ride, at least alone, and that it would be ‘unthinkable’ to not do so on May 11.
