    Useful, I was thinking of heading to Deggars this weekend. Hopefully, limiting social interaction through the “take-away” restriction and no cash will keep them open. It’s usually quiet on the trails there, not much passed or passed by so I struggle to see how that activity could be curtailed by Government directives. I’ll confess though, at other sites, I think I’d be mindful cooped up in a uplift bus.

    How about Antur Stiniog for the list above?

    @rockhopper, adding them now. Looks like their uplift is off.

    Just want to say that in these very weird times, when the vast majority seem to be hovering on the edge of hysteria, what a welcome collection of thoughtful, balanced common sense prevails in the posts above. Compared to the rest of the media atm that was a positive pleasure to read through.

    Well done to all the parks. It makes me proud to be part of the community, keep it up!

    How on earth can van-based uplifts stay running?

    It’s tricky, on the one hand, we should support businesses in this crazy time. On the other hand, we have a social responsibility not to overload the hospitals (even if us fit cyclists aren’t affected, we might of our infect someone who is). I’m doing my best to carry on as normal, I’ll be doing a ride on my local woods this weekend, but not going crazy, as I’m not sure I fancy A&E right now!

    Key things seem to me to be…
    1. Don’t spanner yourself. That’s being a ****t loading up more on the NHS

    2. If you’re driving there, no stopping spreading disease en route at service stations etc (remember you don’t know whether you’re infectious or not)

    BPW has already changed – no uplift after today (Friday), but park is open for ride/push up. Visitor centre closed, zero touch system to collect passes from the front of the building.

    Black Mountain Cycle Centre currently open and running uplift with extra precautions. Must book online, no on-site payment.

    @simon_g thanks I’ll update the article

    Bikepark Wales now closed.

    From the BBC:- “And on Sunday evening, the government issued a further statement, clarifying its advice that “people should avoid travelling unless it is essential”.

    Essential travel, the Department for Health and Social Care said, “does not include visits to second homes, camp sites, caravan parks or similar, whether for isolation purposes or holidays”
