Last month I slowly started to realize and importantly...choose to not take those multi-day trips I had planned with the Lunar Solo. My exciting solo endurance race in May was canceled. The committing two-day traverse in the NW Highlands might have to wait until late summer or autumn now. The bikepacking expedition my ten high school pupils were planning had to be postponed but I will still be engaging with their planning. It just has to be done online now. After my last overnight trip I filmed myself unpacking each bike bag to let them see how I organize kit.
Myself and other teaching colleagues have started to think about how to continue some sort of online, meaningful education for our pupils after the Easter Holidays. My own kids are aged 16, 14, and nearly 13. They are busy young people with sport, music and of course... friends. My wife is a local FireFighter as well as a teacher in the same faculty as me. Suddenly we are all here in the house 24/7 and it is on the whole great fun!
