Re: viewranger subscrition ?

I waited until there was the inevitable special offer and bought the complete UK set. Still not sure if it’s been worth it as it is mostly for casual strolling on holiday but it’s handy to have and the route tracking is interesting, if I remember to set it. Not sure about paying for the subscription...

Re: Padded shorts

I used them on a short 80 mile road/trail ride last week and they seemed ok.
Yesterday’s ride was in 35c and 125 miles and, although I was still a bit achy, the whole day passed in relative comfort. Very impressed with them.

Re: Dvla utter shit!

They are probably helping with the planning system as well.
Working from home they, naively, should be have been more efficient but the statutory 8 weeks is stretched to around 20+.
Not quite as important as your though.

Re: To quarantine or not?

Not as sad as seemingly spending your life looking for ways to moan about the UK and then posting them for our delight and delectation. What satisfaction do you get from this permanent negativity and depression? It certainly doesn’t make any positive contribution whatsoever. A bit of baiting can be ...

Re: To quarantine or not?

I believe Dave said our infection rate was the worst in Europe (i really can’t be bothered to double check through all the diatribe) so I was merely pointing out that, from the website my wife found, France actually had a higher rate than the UK over the last 14 days. It doesn’t matter if it’s 1 or ...

Re: To quarantine or not?

I was referring to the last two weeks, not overall, which seemed to be Dave’s reference. I fully accept it’s not good and the daily infections are still worrying but the constant bitching isn’t going to help or resolve anything just getting more and more boring and equally worrying is Dave’s comment...

Re: To quarantine or not?

FYI. France seem to have had 48 more cases in the last 14 days than the UK. Cherry picking ‘facts’ to suit an argument/gripe is shoddy. If Spain were allegedly so proactive with their lockdown, why is their infection rate so huge? Having a one nation hatchet job is a personal grudge, not a reasoned ...

Re: Spain back on lock down list...

ok, here we go....devil’s advocate time. I’ll probably get flamed. Why would anyone have booked to go anywhere outside the UK so soon. It seemed obvious there was going to be problems so sit it out and see how things pan out first. Any govt has to react to the situation as quickly or as best it can....

Re: Covid 19 Coronavirus

As it was our wedding anniversary today we were actually going to leave the house. :shock: We have been out to open spaces a few times and even essential shopping but had no reason to go out that much. We did our blood doning on Monday and noticed how subdued everyone is but thought it was just that...

Re: Guilty Pleasures

Even doing something once can make you guilty but does it class as a pleasure.
You could make a four year degree study plus masters with that one. :D
