Re: Covid 19 and Spitting

Not me though, just one free spirited individual from YT that we are lucky to share the planet with. He does however make the point rather well... Perhaps in the same way as the Director and the Special Effects specialist makes a car explosion on the Mission Impossible films realistic and represent...

Down the way? Not so much...

Well if that's how you spit, good luck to you.

You must wear more than you get rid.

Re: Covid 19 and Spitting

I'm a bit late to this but I would have thought that spitting is relatively innocuous compared to the airborne spittal which will be generated by someone working really hard on their bike. All the puffing and pechin' will create a cloud of aerosol around their head whilst, at least, a "gob"...

Re: Coronavirus cafes

Whereas in fact there is increasingly compelling evidence that some drivers are using the reduction in traffic to INCREASE their speeds, well above that permitted. A young lad was killed nearby two evenings' ago by a speeding motorist, and the Police have noted some particularly high speeds in seve...

Re: Coronavirus cafes

And secondly, cycling is lower risk than many alternative activities people are doing under lockdown. Serious eye injuries in the Oxford area are up 500% because of incompetent do-it-yourself activities: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-oxfordshire-52260970 And probably everywhere else but tha...

Re: Coronavirus cafes

I'm not in the UK just now and not subject to these restrictions but from what I have read on various websites and social media sites the issue not so much the time but the increased risk of having to call on emergency services if you have an accident. According to RoSPA the majority of accidents o...

Re: Coronavirus cafes

Firstly, cycling is good exercise that even in normal times decreases your risk of landing up in hospital from all causes far more than it increases the risk of going there from injury - and with the reduced traffic levels now, the risk of a crash is probably even lower than usual. I agree about th...

Re: Embarrassing confessions

After a morning of riding around the trails in Drumlanrig Castle grounds my wife and I were cycling along the driveway to the car park. She was ahead of me but was going too slowly so I started pushing on and as I passed her I gave her backside a slap. She wobbled in fright, drifted right and her ha...

I've zoomed in close to make it a little more difficult but I think this should be an easy one.

Re: Loch Laggan and Ardverikie--Monarch of the Glen

The minor roads are probably estate roads and hence private. Under Scots Law you have the right to roam as long as you are not infringing personal space. So in theory you ought to be able to use the roads. In practice they could have gates at several locations. Google Maps doesn't help. Loch Laggan ...
