    It looks like every officious arsehole in the area has donned dayglo leisure wear and headed out to the park to power walk about with stern "I AM HAVING MY ALLOWED EXERCISE DURING A PANDEMIC, KEEP TWO METERS BACK" looks on their face.

        My road bike is worth the best part of £6k .... I look after it and treat it with respect and ride accordingly.
        I think that may be wishful thinking on your part. Don't get me wrong, I cycle myself, but plunging down steep, potholed country lanes, for example, sounds far riskier than a gentle pootle in the car out to a beauty spot to walk the dog, which is (apparently) not permitted.

              Was it Wiggins? You gotta be pretty damn fit to do 45 miles in your allotted 1 hour

                Where does this 1 hour come from?

                  It was said by (I think Gove, may have been Boris) but its not in the official guidance

                  Coronavirus outbreak FAQs: what you can and can't do - GOV.UK

                  But that said, they are saying only key workers to work at certain points, but if you read that, it clearly says - No, if you cant work from home, go to work on non essential tasks.

                  That's typical of the management of this whole thing though. I'd rather all (bar key workers).

                  Oh and following that - if you are with someone sick at work, if you help them - don't go home, just wash yer hands and get back to work, then go home and infect your family.

                    I noticed that the natives are getting restless as there are a lot more out walking and driving today.

                      The good old days

                      Back in the Good Old Days of IT , a certain company had a wizard marketing priniciple - FUD - meaning Fear Uncertainty and Doubt.

                      It worked wonders back then - and - dare I say it ? Seems just as effective nowadays.

                      Boya and Girls - do be ever so good since you cant be too careful nowadays.

                      PS I for one favour policies that reward the rich and punish the poor - I think.
