Spain doesn't allow people out for exercise and Italy has very strict rules on going out, only just relaxed a bit this week.
Regarding obesity. Obese people seldom exercised when they were allowed out so I doubt a no exercise rule would make a lot of difference.

Yes . It's a crazy threat by Hancock.
The people who are out legitimately exercising would be being punished for the behaviour of the eejits.
But that's always the way things go.

I was out cycling the other day. Came back by the main road which I usually avoid. Smooth surface and flatter and next to no traffic.

If this is true it is scary,  virus RNA found in cabins on cruise ships 17 days after the cabins were evacuated....
And probably too much air-conditioning helps the virus to survive. Turn up the heat even if the sun can't penetrate.

I've been out for over two hours cycling on the nearly empty roads. I reckon there were more bikes than motorised vehicles.

The prisons might get crowded if Mr Hancock's postulated ban on exercising outside of the home is implemented .The government seems to have forgotten that one its other, and much longer term, epidemics is called obesity and once people get out of the habit of regular exercise then it's much harder to resume. Nonetheless, people need to figure out how to exercise without getting congested.  This report suggests that even London has plenty of empty space.

I am sure you can count that as absolutely essential travel. Animal welfare.

Let me run this one by you.
My daughter has 5+ acres of land, with stables and 5 horses, located on a site 2 miles from her house and about 9 miles from me.
She currently visits the site twice a day, to feed & water the horses, plus mucking out etc, which I guess would be regarded as essential movement.

Now, as is the case with most families, Dads tend to be the goto person when odd jobs need to be done, (even when your 83!). The onsite electric fence has broken and as a result at least one of horses is going walkabout, within the site.
I have in stock a new fence unit, purchased before the lockdown was initiated, so could easily sort the problem.

However, I'm torn between 'Staying at home' or driving solo the 9 miles to the site. I don't see any problem with Social Distancing, since there would only be the immediate family there (3 persons max) and we have 5+ acres to roam around in.

What do other members think?

Passed my local Shell station today. The current price of V-Power is less than I paid for my supermarket 95 octane at my last top-up. Every cloud has a silver lining.

A great time to try it out but I've still got nearly a full tank!

Have you tried the Sainsbury number?
They haven't contacted me
Got a phone call from Sainsbury's this morning confirming registration as over 70.
I presume that because of demand it takes a few days to work through the system.
OK, thank you so much! I'll go for it I think, if only to get things moving before my wife forgets how to drive!
Have a good day, and stay safe.

My walk round the golf course overlooks the M9 for about two minutes. In that time I saw two artics and one car.

I noticed the neighbours off out carriage driving this morning.
Hope she's back in time for the speech.
