Re: Cycling as an activity during the Covid 19 outbreak

Hi, Below is a link to new research that has been done into exercise and the immune system. It's often be stated that if you exercise either long or hard that immediately afterwards that your immune system may dip and you will become more susceptible to catching a virus. Their findings were that tha...

Re: Victoria Derbyshire Show, BBC

Hi, Well the show in name has gone off air. I'll see now the presenter is on a slot maybe an hour or two long on the main news. They are rather more animated than they ever used to be, but I still don't think a two hour slot at presenting a day Is that hard is it. Considering the fact the news will ...

Re: Another Buying Ebay Scam - Buy Now Receive Sometime

Hi, Yes my item did arrive eventually :) My main gripe was not the fact they used free gift for tracking, but the fact I had no idea when my item was going to arrive. I tried ordering from another firm, and I don't think any of the other UK or overseas firms would've got it any quicker, it's obvious...

Re: Does the Covid-19 virus outbreak make LeJoG too risky ?

Hi, What's this do it next year all about? When eventually restrictions are lifted are you saying that if we want to do anything at all it will have to be 2021? Sounds like it. I for one won't be going anywhere until restrictions are lifted, I won't be giving anyone a excuse to club me to death in s...

Re: Cheap Hooped Bivy (Mini Tent)

Hi, WP_20170627_13_43_40_Pro.jpg I used to use this Gelert solo. It was about 1kg. Easy to carry when backpacking and I've used it on the top of mountains. The drawback was lack of height. Better tents with similar weight and more height were available but at greater coat. The Gelert cost me about £...

Re: Cheap Hooped Bivy (Mini Tent)

Hi, Just to clarify in my first post I said 730 g. I couldn't figure out how my total came to 748? On first measure I decided but I did not need to include the whole tent bag which is 20 g. So the 730 is correct if you are dividing the tent up to carry. The two extra grams are obviously errors round...

Weight Weenie i may be but it still need...

Re: Cheap Hooped Bivy (Mini Tent)

hi, Yes it's a cheap tent/whatever. The sales advert on many of the eBay sales it's basically the same there isn't much there that the article isn't. Only the weight is a little pessimistic, if you can save 50 g on the pegs if you have some lighter ones then you will be down To less than 700 g. For ...
