    It almost sounds like the restrictions are being relaxed. or at least bring inline some of the more draconian forces.

    I removed the stand originally because it's heavy as fuck, but I soon realised its value when the bike kept sliding along poles and windows it was leaned against

    Lol, I went though the other exact same process with my mini maxi.

    The Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, has tested positive for coronavirus, the BBC’s Laura Kuenssberg reports.

    I assume he told her over breakfast, she’ll need to self isolate now to I should think. Perhaps she’ll just stay at number 10 to make life easier.

    Just been into my local medium sized tesco's and they now have some C-19 measures bike rack closed (obviously) the security guard told me to lock up on the troll parking area. cleaning products to whip down the trolls.

    Lots of aisle closed for restocking, not unreasonable I guess. Most of the other aisle had been turned into dead ends which even in a sparsely populated super market had people wondering round into each other confused trying to find there way back to the tills, fuck know what that's all about.

    The experts are saying go for a ride, so I've been for ride, it was lovely.

    If they really want people to stay in doors they'd closed the roads to none essential motor vehicles. the vast majority of the population are incapable of travelling any distance greater than the couch to the fridge and back again without the use of a motor vehicle, instance lock down.

    No, no, you are, literally killing people if you go for a bike ride.

    Freaking out about people riding their bikes, its like getting upset about the deck chairs on the titanic.

    All those people would have lived because of an improvement in air quality end up dying because of Covid 19. You would think it’s a similar demographic.

    My parents are now in total Lock down in southsea, their in their 70s but fit and healthy, they walked the camino last year from their front door carry all their kit.

    I visited this morning to deliver some bread and veg. I sate on the patio and had a chat with them both though the double glazing. Cycling home later I passed the large tescos extra at port Solent. it was just before 9:00 and cars where queuing out the car park and the entrance to the shop looked like the mall scene from the dawn of the dead, with an hour until it opened, bet that was carnage. Fareham tescos 5 miles down the road looked like a normal Sunday.

    Feel very luck to live in a small village with two relatively well stocked shops. I stop at the one stop to get a couple of bits, no bread on the shelves unfortunately. the lady at the till said in a hushed tone, do you need any bread? I said yes and she produced a loaf from behind the counter, said she was look out the the locals.
