    Good work today. It was pretty grim out there. You manage to borrow an Omnium? I’ll only use mine for 4 hours a year, but it was worth every penny.

    Hopefully the results come out quicker than KW.

    We have this in the bedroom. Undyed wool so a bit oatmeal / speckled. I found the manufacturer after a bit of research. John Lewis sell it as their own (for a markup).

    The organiser will email if it's cancelled, nowt we can do so I wouldn't worry about it.

    Thanks for the tip off. This time of the year my CTT filtering is set firmly to HC but there's actually lots of events. Got a few hilly TTs the basket now in case of cancellations. Might need to stop losing weight.

    Also, time keepers are usually 100+ years old. Maybe this will encourage a new generation of clock watchers to step up.

    It would be a shame if the smaller events were cancelled.

    I understand Catford & Bec. I wouldn’t want to be the organiser trying to dissuade 150+ competitors, spectators, helpers and club members from chatting in groups of more than six. Being legally responsible for that too. Thinking about it there’s no way they’d get it past the risk assessment so it’s not surprising.

    For the smaller events that have few or no spectators and less than 50 competitors it seems fairly easy to keep it safe. I have heard concerns from HQ owners (village halls etc) which is obviously out of the organisers hands. Having said that, I race a couple of events that have never had an HQ, everything is outside anyway.
