Re: Riding in Spain - Medical Insurance Cover Winter 20/21

I currently have medical cover through my bank account (Nationwide). Whether this will still apply or cost me more after January I am not sure. I would expect all medical insurance for UK residents travelling to the EU to go up as at the moment the insurers know that a significant proportion of med...

Re: Heated waistcoat

As said go for either Gerbring or Keis as they are the leaders for this sort of thing, oh and you can also get heated gloves and socks that can plug into the jacket as well if your that col...

Re: Covid 19 Coronavirus

You are promoting herd immunity as if it is a magic pill when actually we don't even know that such a utopia exists. Rather than imprison our vulnerable for the remainder of their time on Earth we need a virus beating test system and a support scheme for those who test positive to make it economica...

Re: Giro d'Italia

That wet descent today in the middle of the stage was real butt clenching, teeth bearing stuff.... :shock:
