Posted on 20th September 2021 Covid-19 News
A couple of days ago we finally had the news we have been waiting for all year – travel is returning to a much more accessible and normal system from next month! We predicted months ago that the UK government would block easy travel until the end of September – and we were right – but the good news is that for your 2022 trip you can expect international travel to be much SIMPLER, much CHEAPER and much more SECURE for the first time since covid appeared.
We have immediately seen a significant upswing in enquiries and bookings – so the time to book is now, as we are already at 55% capacity for 2022. Remember that if you don’t get booked early you might not get booked at all! Everyone is going to want to get back to dusty trails, huge mountains, blue skies and that magical feeling that comes from riding in a truly awe-inspiring, bike-focussed location….we can’t wait to get back to Andorra ourselves too!
Yes, for the vaccinated, travel is unlocking at last – and 2022 is looking amazing, with restrictions set to ease very significantly thanks to the end of the confusing and expensive testing requirements which we have seen throughout the past year! Instead, if you are double-vaccinated UK resident* (which most of us now are) you will simply have to submit a cheap lateral flow test when you get back from your trip. The pointless Amber List is being removed, with countries set to be simply Red or Green – and it’s expected that no Western European nations will be red listed unless something really unexpected occurs! Basically, our vaccination programme appears to have succeeded in breaking the link between infections and serious illness – and Europe is starting to catch up too – so there is no need to prevent travel to our neighbouring nations any longer.
All of our dates, prices and availability for 2022 are already live on our website for both our guided, uplifted Enduro trips and our budget-friendly bike park trips…the guided trips are limited capacity, and are what we are famous for – so they book up quickly!
We simply cannot wait to get back on the trails with our guests after two seasons away – and we are going to treasure every moment we get to ride with you all as we make a return towards normal. We have missed you all so much!
* – England-only at the time of writing, with other UK governments set to follow in due course
"the land of huge mountains, beautiful singletrack, naughty switchbacks, burgers and beer!"
