The news has been widely circulated and commented. Day trippers to Troodos over the past two weekends had the almost sole purpose of taking photos of themselves on snow, as is a customary ‘sport’ among many city dwellers in Cyprus, when snow falls on Troodos. Caught by the police, they reported ‘hiking’ as the cause of their outing. This distortion forced the Minister of Health to ban hikes on the island’s nature trails on 27 Jan.
This Club can only abide by the rules, even when these are unjust. We hope the ban will be lifted soon. Until then, Club Members are urged to make use of city parks and seaside walks.
