On their own. I do, and AIUI, that is how they are supposed to be worn. I suppose you could though wear a pair of light socks underneath. The winter Sealskinz are designed to provide the extra warmth.

Cycling, covid and the immune system

Last night, BBC1 treated us to an hour long documentary on how to boost the immune system. So our diet is what creates the right gut bacteria that in turn support the immune system to fight off colds, flu - and covid. https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/m000r0hx/the-truth-about-boosting-your-immun...

Re: Want to sell my car in order to cycle

For us, personally, we cannot do shopping via walking, cycling or public transport. Nor us, or by car. 95% of our food arrives delivered and left outside the back door. The few inches of distance is in fact impossible to traverse by any means other than reaching down with one's arms and picking it ...

Re: Newbie cyclist doing LEJOG 2021

No kidding, my latest estimated first jab date is one day before I leave, and the second jab estimated date is after I get back :) Just perusing the posts above and I'm curious about the time relationship betwen jab and trip. AIUI, if you have an idea as to when your jab might be, it means (possibl...

Re: Camping in England

This is the page where the C and CC point out that their certifcated sites are exclusive to members: https://www.campingandcaravanningclub.co.uk/ukcampsites/smallsites/ (I trust that we haven't misunderstood each other due to terminology etc.) Bit more here: If you would like to see full details of ...

Re: Camping in England

Unfortunately, not only does it insist that these sites don't (AFAIK) advertise except in C and CC, they demand that the sites close their doors to non-members. I don’t think any of that has a grain of truth in it. If you like I can trawl through listings and publications to prove my point. Only la...

Re: Camping in England

I like the C&CC main sites, known quality at a known price. With a bit of luck, I've found it's possible to string 3-5 sites together into a route that's roughly going where I want to go before I hit a gap in their main sites. Can I ask if you are a member? I know some folk have done some maths...

Re: WInter 2020 : Covid-19 : 2nd Lockdown

They should leave them where they are. Though I don't agree with it, I've accepted the lockdown throughout, stuck religiously to the guidelines (including a 14 day quarantine) and given them the benefit of the doubt. I recognise that other people have different views from mine on this and given that...

Re: WInter 2020 : Covid-19 : 2nd Lockdown

This has gone too far now, it's beyond a joke and it's time for people to say no, IMV. Not sure what you're saying here... ... that people should decrease their adherence to isolation measures? ... or get rid of an incompetent government? Thanks Jonathan AIUI the government is increasing its measur...

Re: WInter 2020 : Covid-19 : 2nd Lockdown

Well it looks like there is another tightening of the lockdown coming night. I think this is the first time I have felt a tinge of anger in all this: this is a winter hospital management problem, nothing to do with me and something for which I am not responsible. And blaming it on children is repreh...

Re: Camping in England

Doing that type of distance there are a few areas of the UK where there are no suitable campsites at all. Ironically that isn't just in the wilds of Scotland - around London they are few and far between. Normally i wouldn't book but this year with covid and the big boost in camping, I did. Many sit...

Or, if you hide the "New Cases" (by clicking on the "New Cases" label/key in the same way), the y-axis will re-scale to show the deaths more sensibly.

Done that, thank you. Though I'm still not seeing the upsurge (I'm just listening to Jeremy Hunt on the radio!)

Re: Would you take a vaccine against CV? Vote now please!

If you click on 3 months, the dashed red line (which might be deaths?) doesn't rise in proportion to the cases line so I don't see how it can be. However, you may be right in that the left hand axis is too large to show the small number of deaths. Furthermore, the deaths figures don't gave AFAICS a ...

Interesting discrepancy here only a few thousand I grant you but possible evidence we’ll never know the truth.


My computer isn't showing the deaths line in the UK New Cases and Deaths by Day graph, just the number of cases. Is anyone else having the same problem?
