    Quick, delete all posts!!
    No need for undercover police operations, over the years I have met and run with several Fellrunning police officers, also a couple of politicians, so you can rest assured they know where to monitor in fact there is a plethora of forums with folk proudly posting what they are doing.

    And here's a bit of useless info, I was police V50 fell champion one year I did the race, god that was 17 years ago, one of my few highlights from a very average fell runner.
    Ring-a-ring-o-roses, a pocket full of posies, a-tishoo! a-tishoo! we all fall down.

    It is the first ten minutes and the last ten minutes when I see a few people - after that, almost nobody. So enforcing a time limit of, say, an hour, would make virtually no difference. The number of local people here in Ambleside doing two hour plus runs is small, and the long days and the space is easily big enough to "swallow" them. It may be very different in towns/cities of course, and with cycling on some roads.

    The other point to ruminate is that the longer you are out and the further you are away from home, the higher your chance of needing the emergency services becomes. Admittedly, this is not something that would cross our minds normally but in current circumstances you should weigh that up. Is it fair/right/morally acceptable to take on that risk?

    Devil's advocate sort of stuff
    Tommorow morning I'm riding the bike into town to pick up our prescriptions from the surgery, a 15 mile round trip.

    Can I count that as shopping and go out again for my exercise in the afternoon, or not?

    Off to bed now whilst you ponder .

    Today's PDE was a lovely evening 5 miles and 500 feet run in Lathkill Dale with my son. We arrived home just as my 9 pint polybox of Caskade from Whim Brewery was being delivered.

    Put it at the back of the garage in the cool, to settle, and hopefully it will be spot on tomorrow evening.
    Visibility good except in Hill Fog

    It is a good point and it is what has made me think twice about going out on my road bike before tonight. I was worried in case I had an accident or mechanical issue I couldn't sort. As you say, that would never be a consideration normally. Anyway, I went this evening, did 26 miles and it was absolutely glorious. Felt like a summers evening with the added bonus of very quiet roads. I will definitely be out on the bike again again in the early part of the Bank Holiday weekend when the weather is promised to be so good.

    Balance of risks and common sense - most injuries needing outside help occur in the home. Nobody would ever ride a bike if the risk had to be reduced as much as possible. Whilst my usual run these days is about 2 hours 15 minutes, I am doubling back on myself a lot of the time and am never actually very far from home. Top of Loughrigg is hardly distant or extreme terrain. And it is mainly grass.
