Re: Derbyshire police - no cycling

When I jump on my bike I don’t wear Lycra and can’t see why anyone would need to for just an hour’s ride, you’re out for a bit of exercise not training to win the Tour de France. That's got to be the [redacted] , [redacted] , most [redacted] [redacted] I've ever had the [redacted] to [redacted] [re...

Re: The cops get their knuckles rapped

well polluting the water at that beauty spot so obviously crosses the line - I wonder if they can be prosecuted? I'm told ,(though don't have a reference, might be fake news) that is something done regularly each year due to the number of drownings at the location. Beware jumping to conclusions. Yu...

Re: Embarrassing confessions

I once cycled off after having a quick stop in a layby.

Only turn round after realising the reason the tandem was so quick to accelerate wasn't that my 5yo was pushing harder, but that he was still standing in the layby...

Re: Cycling as an activity during the Covid 19 outbreak

I would be very interested to hear your alternative explanation. Well if everyone got infected to the maximum possible %, in certain areas, then it follows that restrictions were too late for those areas. Therefore if such areas exist, it would be instructive to look at their death rates, since the...

Re: Here's a thought....

But to suggest I yam more irritable than usual is a foul calumny and I am coming 'round your hoose to break it's windows as a result. Or, I may report you to my grand daughter the polis woman, who will be 'round like a shot to fit you up with the content of my allegation. She is a natural at victim...

Re: Here's a thought....

PS That virus has had a marked effect on many here and they haven't even got it. PPS why does the Cugelmeister think himself immune from these effects? There is no immunity from the virus, after all. Ha ha - I don't think I'm immune. The bluddy thing and it's effects on other human psyches is drivi...

Ultimately there will be excess deaths, but where we expect annual deaths of 1% of population in Italy, I would be surprised ends up being as high as 1.5% for the year


Yes, but only because of the measures taken against it.

Re: Cycling as an activity during the Covid 19 outbreak

If the virus as an organism knew what it was doing, it would kill every single recipient. Trouble is, if it knew what it was doing, it would know that after it killed everybody and every thing on the planet, then it would die itself. Therefore, it doesn't know what it's doing. Viruses are not alive...

Re: Cycling as an activity during the Covid 19 outbreak

The point you are ignoring is that the growth stops, and has stopped in China and Korea, and will everywhere. Death statistics lag infections by 2 to 3 weeks so aren't that helpful in determining current growth. My guess is essentially it infected everyone in Lombardy it wa going to, and the price ...

Re: Cycling as an activity during the Covid 19 outbreak

Growth is *currently* exponential. Obviously that can't go on infinitely. Recent data 27-28 March 6999 tests, of which 2510 (35.8%) positive 26-27 March 8911 tests, of which 2921 (32.8%) positive 25-26 March 7847 tests, of which 2129 (27.1%) positive 24-25 March 6583 tests, of which 1452 (22.1%) po...

Re: Cycling as an activity during the Covid 19 outbreak

The growth rate isn’t actually exponential.... And, yet again, an unreferenced incorrect assertion. Exponential growth shows a straight line on a log plot. Here's the data. Again. It's exponential. In fact it is not. Viral growth typically follows either a logistic curve or a Gompertz curve (simila...
