    A lap of the country lanes on mountain bike.
    Traffic down to a trickle, but seemingly it is only the morons that overtake on blind bends who are the ones left out driving: They are the ones I hoped would stay home!

    Todays PDE was a lovely evening bike ride of 20 miles and 1,700 feet on very quiet roads, apart from a short section on the A515 where the quarry wagons were flying along as usual.

    Earlier in the day I spent a few hours on the allotment hoping to do some digging but the ground is rock hard. Three weeks ago it was like a pudding up there. Being 800ft above sea level and very open, the recent sun and wind have given it a hammering. I had a big tidy up and a large bonfire which can only usually be done with a southerly wind which takes the smoke away from the houses.
    Visibility good except in Hill Fog

    Well the guidelines suggest a walk of up to 1h but fair enough that is just a guideline. Where do you draw the limit though, is a full day hike in the hills ok?

    50 minutes on bridleways around Temple Newsam estate. Taking in the wild life and blossoming trees.

    I'm with you Bigfella

    60 minutes of exercise outside your property would have been my suggestion too.

    I also can see others logic.

    We all just interpret the guidelines differently.

    But as I have a daughter-in-law who is front line NHS in Halifax and 2 in-laws in their 80s perhaps my thoughts are for others and not just mi sen.
