270 in under 16;40 or less is more Ben Nevis or trying to stay in top flight football spending a hundred million pounds less on players than your counterparts. Tough but if done the locals will call you brilliant.

Can anyone confirm that travel in England is allowed from 29th March? Does this include train travel?

From gov.uk
Travel
The ‘stay at home’ rule will end on 29 March but many restrictions will remain in place. People should continue to work from home where they can and minimise the number of journeys they make where possible, avoiding travel at the busiest times and routes...
So sounds like we're still with essential journeys only.
Not a plus one :wink:

The current Roadmap doesn't state when non-local travel will be be allowed. If I had to guess, I would go with 17th May, as non-local travel seems to tie in with the idea of being inside with strangers but not many of them. But I'm not going to guess. I'm going to wait until it's (reasonably) clear that we're allowed out to play.

12th April it seems to be the end of "stay local" with the reopening of outdoor attractions, and overnight stays being allowed with your own household.

In all honesty, trains have been a lot busier since the roadmap out of lockdown was announced!

You could use Gloucester Road or Earls Court instead

Going the other way could you go one stop further from Sloane Square also. The only reason I will be stopping at Earl's Court is to try and get a Kensington (Olympia) train

One of my routes doesn't actually involve getting off at South Kensington, but I was travelling through the station on the Piccadilly Line, and that means this route wouldn't count because presumably the doors won't open for the next 12 months. But I can still practice the route during that time so it's not too bad.

Yeah mine too, hence my suggestion above. What's worse for me though is I have to travel down to London and the new date was going to be March 22

Shit I just realised that's part of my route too... could do the Sloane Square thing though

So does mine :-(

And there's not quite enough time to carry on to Gloucester Road (though there might *just* be if trains aren't stopping at South Ken).
