Yeah I had a look through my "Photos of Boners" folder and it was pretty thin gruel tbh.

"Boners in front of famous landmarks" is a decent idea for a thread in these troubled times.

Microsoft Paint will cover that little task Taylor (Freeform selection and Transparent selection ticked to cut himself out of a pic then just drag it onto the Colloseum)

I'm not sure I follow. I worry about people spreading the virus around / putting unnecessary strain on already stretched health services.

10.4 million people with gym memberships Richard. They all need to go somewhere to exercise now, and when you live in London your choices are pretty limited tbf.

Re: If we close up for a bit...

The stated advice was "your standard length". The aim is to limit any potential spreading of the infection and minimise risk of injury to yourself. If you're used to going out for a 50km ride or a 15km run and are able to do that without coming into contact with people then I think that's OK. A spin...

Most of the UK's fine tbf Duncan. It's easy to see images of a few idiots in the media and extrapolate them across an entire country but it wouldn't be accurate.

Re: If we close up for a bit...

I'm no tory but imo the government have done the right thing so far in sticking to the scientific advice.

If it transpires that they've ignored the Chief Medical Officer/Scientific Adviser/SAGE/PHE then they can all go up against the wall but that doesn't seem to be the case.

Re: Dales Divide 2020 .. who's going?

I'd be much more inclined to use the mtb. There were some people on gravel bikes last year, including Alex Watts who got a very fast time, but there are some long stretches where you'll be uncomfortable and cursing not having wider tyres/suspension/both.
