They say travel is limited to: Shopping; medical care or compassionate needs; exercise; and for work and education.
Some states allow compassionate visits and some say exercise includes riding a motorcycle for leisure, although some stipulate it’s only in your neighbourhood.
So we contacted the PM’s office, each Premier’s office, state health departments, the national coronavirus hotline and police for clarification.
We were meet with obfuscation, silence, buck passing, delayed callbacks, deliberation and more confusion.
Plus, the rules seem to change every couple of days, meaning we have to start the whole process over again.
Pretty soon we believe riding may be totally banned unless the curve starts to flatten.
Many riders are expressing confusion and frustration about the rules.
It’s similarly confusing in some other countries, such as the USA where much of the nation has a shelter-in-place order but the National Park Service is waiving entrance fees to encourage people get fresh air while maintaining social distancing!
So we want to know what you think about riding in the pandemic. If you live outside Australia, just skip the irrelevant questions.
