No free social cycle rides for a while

Recommended Posts

I think everyone can guess why. We have been managing to keep Healthy Rides going whenever the regulations allowed - which was most of the time. Now we are in Tier 4. There are lots of pretty pictures of what's going wrong here: https://covid.joinzoe.com/data. Enjoy.

Tier 4 means no more rule of 6 and no more sociable Healthy Rides for now. However 2 people can meet outdoors and clearly could go on a bike ride. So we hope most of you will be on your bikes a bit over the festive period. The easy 1-2 hour rides that were designed for the Lockdown in April are still up on the Southwark Cyclists web site https://southwarkcyclists.org.uk/healthy-rides/do-it-yourself-hrs/. These have turn-by-turn details and other information. Give one a try.

If you do it would be nice to have some photos of rides during Tier 4 on the HR Facebook Group (https://www.facebook.com/groups/553896211918871). If you are not in this group, just go to the link and request to join.

As soon as the cases have dropped and the regulations allow, Healthy Rides will be back. In the meantime, Stay Safe over the next few weeks.

    • We lost a beloved toy fox on lordship lane, Saturday 2nd march in the afternoon. He has cute green overalls. Was hand knitted and a special gift. If anyone happened to pick him up, we’d be very grateful for his safe return!  Imogen  07791842153.
    • I hope you never run into the last character eating chicken on my bus-he was an older guy, and when he'd finished his food, removed his dentures and picked them clean 😗 I'm still getting over it!
    • We once chose a decorator based on a long history of good reviews on here. It didn’t occur to us that he would ‘outsource’ the work to someone else who did a pretty poor job. Lesson learned. Always check that the person with the good reviews will be actually doing the work.
    • Openreach is a wholly owned subsidiary of BT Group but is obliged under regulation to act even-handedly with BT UK and all other of its wholesale customers - that is that all companies supplying services through the Openreach local Network must be treated similarly - so BT Retail has no better, or hopefully worse, access to Openreach as does any other competing company. Openreach has 'passed' much of East Dulwich with fibre to the premises (FTTP) capability.  BT is rebranding all its Retail services to 'EE' (that is, services to private/ residential customers) and I believe to SMEs as well. It is keeping the BT brand as a marketing name for its Major Business business. The maximum speed for FTTC (fibre to the cabinet) services is about 60-70MG to the household router - which is described I believe by some estate agents as superfast, curiously. The real FTTP services in ED are at the moment 500 or 1000MG to the router, and broadly achieve quite close to that, although speeds to the apparatus via WiFi are much less. To get actual benefit of the fibre speed you will need an ethernet network internally.
