  • I fail to see why people is so offended at the idea of riding out. Just ride safely and avoid all humans, no coffee stops.

  • I don't think many people have an issue with a short ride out to keep you sane but, to put this in context, there were olympic officials on the radio this morning saying that one reason that the olympics is being delayed is because the athletes can't really keep up their training right now. If olympians are letting their training schedule slip then I don't think the average forumenger can justify their standard weekend century (km or miles), just because they want to stay at peak fitness.

    As someone said the other day, if your life feels normal at the moment, then you're not doing it right.

    But Olympians need to do a lot more than the occasional weekend century to get to their peak at the Olympics. Training is their job at that point, there is no way you can compare that to anything the average person might do. Of course their training schedule is slipping, a lot of them simply cannot possibly keep doing it at the usual intensity with the current limitations in place, especially as it's not only about the training itself, but access to physios, doctors, coaches, etc.
