Blond Bombshells

Had a top day up in the Monts De Blond yesterday. Mixed weather, from blue skies to drizzle, leaving the rocks covered in a mossy slick which sometimes had grip and sometimes felt like ice. For those who don't know, this is an area of rocky hills north-west of Limoges going up to about 450 metres. I...

Re: XT 660 - Booster plug

Your diet was going so well in Spain, especially with all our sensitive support at the campsite.

Enough about you, I want to see your new bike...

Re: Covid 19 Coronavirus

A clip from today's (non-tabloid) press: A widely circulated open letter criticising strict lockdown measures and advocating for a herd immunity strategy has a number of fake names among its “medical” signatories, leading to accusations it falsely represents scientific support for the controversial ...

Re: Covid 19 Coronavirus

If you don't test, you don't have statistics or understanding of the virus and you don't find out who is vulnerable and whether anyone is developing immunity. Large scale testing is a vital prerequisite of either following a lockdown policy or a herd immunity policy, regardless of which method you b...

Re: Covid 19 Coronavirus

what i am saying is that lockdowns don't work herd immunity won't work and that the situation is now at the critical stage where this turning point of the contagion could become a catastrophe, but could, by adopting a different world strategy, be less disastrous than continuing with the failed acce...

Re: Costa Vicentina Portugal

Great pics, and a really nice part of the world. So many seem to flock to the Algarve beaches, when the west coast is more attractive IMO, and far less developed.
