Carole’s April Covid19 Blog

Dear All,

I hope everyone is able to get out following the social distancing rules and spend an occasional hour of their exercise on their bikes. It is surprising how empty the roads are,  Just be careful you don’t add to the NHS’s woes by having an accident. I was most annoyed to read in one of the papers in the letters to the editor that someone who was using their exercise time to litter pick went on to say “as well as lager tins and fag packets, I now find antiseptic wipes and blue surgical gloves—-and loads of plastic energy drink bottles. Why can’t cyclists take them home.”!!! Cyclists?! Why they thought cyclists littered with fag packets, surgical gloves, etc is beyond me.

Since there were no organized rides this month, a few of us joined in with the Elmbridge cycling club’s 9th annual slightly interesting Easter egg hunt set by the quiz master, George James .We started with a Zoom meeting when we were given the questions. Our previous chairman Ian Wright and Helen, even joined us from their home in Knaresborough. George set 25 questions, most of the  answers were available on street view. A few were from the GCHQ puzzle book…like who thought we would ever figure those out! Yet some did. Anyway It was a lot of fun. WCUG always supply the prizes so I must tell our  treasurer we owe them one virtual Easter egg!

And I lied last time when I said that Pub nights were called off.  Since we can’t cycle together, we decided we can still have Pub nights…VIRTUALLY!  George has set it up on Zoom. Hopefully you will only have to use this link to join us. We will start at the usual time of 7:00 and watch George and Barbara finish their dinner. You will all have to bring your own drinks! All who can manage it, are welcome. Please contact me ( for details of how to join in.

See you at the pub!

Stay safe.
