This is going to be a funny day, with the amount of people already booked into local hotels there's going to be a high concentration of Z3's in the area :D
If there is a high concentration of Zeds in the area (by coincidence) that weekend then group formation may be inevitable? And if that's the case well, these things happen do they not, no individual could be blamed for organising an illegal event and the forum could not be called into disrepute for being the platform just such an event was arranged. :whistle::whistle:

You never know I may be out and about that weekend too.

As far as I am concerned @Tearoom and I decided not to waste our non refundable hotel bookings. We opted to do a run together on Sunday with the additional help as it later transpired of @mwpe who has the routes. With a total of 4 person in separate vehicles that complies with the current regulations as no-one from different households will be mixing, except in a hotel which are legally open. What other persons may or may not decide to do is none of my business or control. Myself and Tearoom (and Mrs Tearoom) decided to have a run together with the help of mwpe who has the routes, we are not encouraging the reinstatement of what would become an illegal run out to see the autumn colours . If Nodzed and Mrs Nodzed who live there are doing the same well that is their decision.

Just for the record, we are quite happy doing our own thing.
We will be around the Ross-on Wye Premier Inn Saturday evening / night
Although I will be driving, my zed does tend to like following other zeds as and when it sees them, it's like it develops a will of its own.
Almost doglike, it seems to recognise one of its own by sniffing their exhaust pipe(s)
Luckily we intend to stay on the English side of the border, as martial law seems to have been imposed on the other. :whistle:

Hi all. FYI
Due to the changes happening with the Welsh borders and CORVID, and it may get worse, a word of caution to any of you that are still coming to the Forest / Wye Valley area on the run weekend to do "your own thing" if you are following any routes from the last 4 years just bear in mind the Wye Valley road section from Monmouth to Redbrook and Bigsweir Bridge to Tintern and on to Chepstow are in fact on the Welsh side of the border. Unfortunately it's some of the best parts of the area. Below I have marked the sections of road you need to be aware of and where you would be in Wales. Basically most of the Lower Wye Valley the river is the England/Wales border.

All sections of the Forest of Dean are in England.

Hmmmmm That's most of my route from Bristol.
Get over the Severn Bridge and get onto the B4228 St Briavels, You're into England and the Forest then Warrick. If you want some satnav routes just shout and I'll do some for you to hereford on some nice roads.

@Tearoom Here you go, scenic route from Chepstow to Hereford, via the part of the Wye Valley thats in England and Yat Rock, and you will stay in England other than the 2 miles through Chepstow.

Thanks for that Niall, barring any more drastic restrictions, we will still be coming but I think it will be a play it by ear and do your own thing on the day.

Well Mike Wales will be in lock down before then so stay out of the Wye Valley. The police were stopping cars last lock down and on the local news today they said they will be again. If you want a safe route just say and I'll do you one

I might just put on some false plates and travel up the Wye Valley. I'm sure I have a picture of Alun's reg somewhere. ;)

If you have any good routes which avoid Wales it would be good.

I'm going to watch old episodes of Gavin & Stacey in case I get stopped by police.
'Hello officer, what's occurring?'
