Hi Rambo, I'd only go out anyway on a dry road at this time of year, preferably in the middle of the day if it's sunny - after commuting all year round from Reading into Westminster when I was a young man, I've had my fill of dark, wet roads. And I'd not bounce as well as I used to.Andy, apparently you can ride alone as it is an excercise. Not that i will ride in this cold though. Any accident putting me into a hospital is too high a risk. Not fallen off in 42 years but ice might get me. Fairly safe from covid down here but the hospital in Exeter seems to be getting swamped. I would go out if the roads were dry and over 4c. Until then, i have the car.
Not sure about riding a bike being exercise though - although kickstarting it must qualify. In any event, I have to take the dog out 3 times a day, and Boris says we can only go out once - so I'm waiting for the police helicopter to swoop one day!
