Re: Test, Track and Trace - I don't understand

No idea how well the track and trace will work, but our own experience of testing this week has been OK Through the test centre in less than 30 minutes, results (negative) texted to us 36 hours later. Of course others may have different experiences, but as people are more likely to report a bad expe...

Re: Aluminium Upright Car Roof Bike Bicycle Carrier

I've used these for steel, aluminium and a carbon bike without problem.

I have recently upgraded to a thule proride 598, a bit more expensive, but much easier to secure the bikes and remove them, which helps when putting them on to the roof of a fairly tall SUV.

Amusing:

The best way to encourage the general population to take regular daily exercise is to tell them they can't go out because there is a risk they may catch a life threatening disease.

Re: Funniest clean joke I've heard recently

I've uploaded the NHS Tracking App

It showed that I visited an Optician, a Chemist and then went to Greggs

Now the Government know all about my lifestyle:

Re: Will You be using the NHS app?

My data would be terribly flawed, and they would always be calling me. I need to have my phone with me as I am either on-call, liasing with others or managing and contacting staff who are off, in isolation etc. Therefore I would be triggering the alarms every time I dealt with a patient . Possibly ...

Re: Will You be using the NHS app?

well so far 50:50 dont look good for the success of the app if this reflects the country at large - I understand they need a 80% take up of mobile users? It may be a bit presumptive to think the opinions of 34 posters on a Cycling forum are representative of the wider population on this issue. Let'...

Re: Is the UK government an incompentent bunch of liars?

So you can't find anything in the transcript of the video which where the President says he thinks injecting disinfectant is a good idea or that UV light is either? You provided us with the video. Now tell us where he says either of these things. Please don't tell us what you or your thousands of s...

Re: Is anyone moving?

Sorry late to the party. Having worked in the Private Health Care sector I've seen this judgmental and ill informed comment too many times: Was it my comment you are calling ill informed? That's a very aggressive stance to jump in with. How do you know where or how I'm informed? You've worked in th...

Re: Is anyone moving?

In a sort of balance a lot of our own grown Medics give-up on our NHS (‘cause it doesn’t treat them that well) and find new employment overseas. Or in the private sector that wouldn’t be so profitable if it didn’t leach off the NHS. Sorry late to the party. Having worked in the Private Health Care ...

Re: Corona Virus statistics - anomalies?

Dr John Lee (a retired pathologist) has explored this quite extensively in the Spectator. He says that reporting rules have now been (alarmingly) changed and that someone (AIUI) who dies with coronavirus will now be recorded as having died of coronavirus i.e. covid19 was the cause of death. The WHO...

Re: The cops get their knuckles rapped

Lord Sumption needs to wind his neck in as far as I'm concerned. The Police, like many of us, are doing a difficult job in an unprecedented situation. It doesn't help that a number of people are seeing how far they can push the limits of Lockdown (see the Triathlete 200 mile ride post in the How far...
