I may be stating the obvious - but are people wiping down their mobile phones frequently?
I keep seeing people in shops on their phones, using gloves then pressing mobiles against their faces!
Probably a miss from me, but I have moved my shopping list from my phone onto paper again!
I've been wiping our phones down, as well as very very carefully wiping the car keys and steering wheel, car door handles etc on the couple of times I've had to use the car to go to the bank. I've always been paranoid about germs, but even more so nowadays.
The blue recycling bag handles will also be disinfected after it's been emptied tomorrow (as the bin man said to me as I thanked him for doing my bin the other week, scrub your hands extra well after taking the bins in as they have been touching hundreds of bin handles on their rounds)
Good point, well made.
Sorry, I know this is a fairly old post, but is that a tyre especially for the turbo? I've got a turbo, but never got round to using it as was worried about the wear. So been going outside. Would be nice to be able to use it though.
I use my normal tyre on my turbo, but the OH has a special tyre for his.
Does it not wear it down the middle? I'm a little reluctant to stick my Ruby on it....
I've got an old Giant Dash I could put on it, but it's got flat bars so will feel weird, but at least the legs could get some more exercise.
Edit - first world problems, I know.
I have just been to have a look, it is rather shiny! I use my winter bike so it's hidden by the mud guards rnormally. I think Henry Burton are still open, the OH got his turb tyre from there only just before lockdown.

Because then we could all just be on facebook, even if we didn't want to be.
And some of us do not.
Just had a call from SBC asking if I need any help with anything and how I was getting on in lockdown.
They're offering help with shopping, collecting prescriptions, etc but are also interested in people's wellbeing and can help befriending if people need it.
I presume people can contact SBC directly if they do need help themselves.
Remote teaching yes, remote learning seems to be optional.
