What value a life half lived if the half you lived was the wrong half?

If we're following our "glorious" leader's example, travelling no more than 7 miles from home....a circular route allows 58 miles of riding :ugeek: .

Could be worse... :wink:

Bracelets, that's the answer. Like the ones worn in Transporter 3. As modelled here by Natalya Rudakova

A friend has been travelling to HK for work and their 14 day quarantine from arrival is "enforced" by a geo fence and GPS tracker, iirc.

Very clever idea of Pete's :-bd . But yep, as Pete says, got to get yourself to the circumference and back :smile: .

I'm working on a modified version which involves less mileage but is equally bonkers :wink: .Just spent two hours making some calculations but I think I've got something....

I got 75 in real terms (after accounting for the ride out and back and the undulations of the roads/connections)...

If I was wearing my cynical hat, I’d ponder on the fact that by deliberately ensuring that the guidance is vague you can convince the majority of people to blame individual members of the public rather than the government for the current transmission rates

As with a lot of things, the majority of people (and that probably includes most of 'us') will know that it's always someone else's fault....
We go out into the hills to lose ourselves, not to get lost. You are only lost if you need to be somewhere else and if you really need to be somewhere else then you're probably in the wrong place to begin with.

Nope, I've lived with Dee long enough to know, it's always my fault ... whatever it is.

:lol: but then we've suspected for a long time that you're not "the majority of people" :wink:
