  1. I ended up drawing my moral line in the sand and refusing to go in. Every other shop has shut or adjusted to appointment/online/click and collect only services and the owners response was to possibly shut one or two days a week. I’d rather volunteer my time to the right cause and have no income than receive a pay check from people that value profit over lives of the population.
  2. In the bike shop I work at on a zero hour contract (as good as unemployed now how I see it) they’ve not really done anything beyond encouraging people to wash their hands. I was today working with an over 60 bloke with diabetes who has an older partner with health issues at home with lots of customers waltzing through the door at free will. I today got asked to work next week but refused to unless they change the way they operate but they aren’t willing to listen or change. They’ve taken a lot of money this week from sales which to me shows they’re more concerned about what profit they can capitalise on rather than peoples health and well-being. Should I go in and work tomorrow afternoon and try and enforce change or refuse to show up to work? In this current situation I believe if we have the ability to do something then it is really our responsibility to do something about it.
  3. Because it does spread the virus? I went riding yesterday and I crossed paths with a couple of groups, they were all very close and on narrow single track going the other way it would be impossible to avoid close contact. Same goes for walkers, places I barely see anyone at all are absolutely rammed. Also all these people now doing outdoorsy things how many are going to go out and get injured? That is not needed right now. I understand why they’ve banned it, it might be more ideal to force people to ride individually though.
  4. These are strange times. Theres definitely a strange atmosphere everywhere here, as much as some people are being awful I believe it’s brought out a lot of goodness as well as people being more compassionate for one another. For me I have the double whammy of being self employed as my primary income and a zero hour contract bike shop job. I don’t believe I’ll be receiving any emails soon to book work in, marketing budgets appear to have been put on hold for now. Luckily I just managed to finish a big job in March in time. I was also imminently going to be moving to Canada permanently, but my visa will likely be delayed now and that’s not going to be easy to move over and find desirable work now. I’ve not seen my partner who’s there since November and now have no clue when we’ll be allowed to see each other. In the grand scheme of things I believe I’m relatively lucky, there’s people that’ll be in far worse situations than me and I don’t have too many financial commitments. I’ve offered my bike mechanic skills to friends and the local community to encourage people to isolate in the great outdoors on their bikes and boost their mental health. I’d like to do some more helping where I can, anyone got any good ideas for that?
  5. I’m up for a day out with the camera again. Can’t guarantee I’ll attend though as I’m not sure exactly when I’m moving my life to Canada just yet.
  6. My Trek Slash that I've been rocking for a while now. I've half put it up for sale if anyone would be interested. It's been a fantastic bike but I'm actually fancying the idea of downgrading.
  7. https://duncanhaguephotography.com/blog/2019/4/24/canon-eos-r-my-thoughts I've been shooting with Canon's new Mirrorless EOS R for a few months now if anyone would like to take in my thoughts on it.
  8. Some recent snaps, really been enjoying shooting a whole lot more recently.

    I’m intrigued by what’s going on with that Alfa front wing, if that’s the design style they’ve gone with it’ll be interesting to know the thoughts behind it. Excited to see how the season develops. Should we put down some T-F predictions to look back on at the end of the season? Winner gets some T-F stickers.
  10. A job became available that I really wanted that was for a great little shop, I filled 99% of the criteria and it would be perfect for me. The communication was good then I had an interview and I just didn’t get a very good vibe. I think I did everything best as I could on my part but I think essentially there is a lot of strong competition and applicants so I’m not confident at all that I’m going to get it. I’ve really struggled to find good work since I returned to the U.K. having been messed around by a few companies and some bad luck. I hope this isn’t another to add to the list.
  11. It’s an 04 147 ti that I exchanged just £300 for. Picked it up today and been for a blast and I’m incredibly pleased with it. Think I’ve got myself an absolute bargain it’s drives brilliantly and does not need anything major doing to it beyond a service.
  12. I've bought myself and my mrs an Alfa Romeo incredibly cheap. Am I insane or mental?
  13. I've got myself a DJI Mavic Pro and it has been fantastic when I used it. I've witnessed first hand people receiving cheap copies as gifts and the quality is just plain awful, I've seen them flown once when received then never used again. Just an utter waste of money. The mavic pro is great thanks to its portability and ease of use, it's also relatively small and quiet compared to others. As it happens I had just vaguely put mine up for sale today, I got a bit scared by the legislation, paperwork and insurance you need now if you're making money from it and as I'm trying to turn professional I thought I'd rather invest the money into my DSLR kit and remove temptation.
  14. I've only done a few hundred miles on my GX 12 speed setup and it has been great so far. Does as it should really, I have heard some people saying it can be a bit problematic and clunky at times but for the most part it's pretty reliable and solid. I don't think it's fully necessary though, get the front chain ring size correct and 11 speed is more than adequate and would fulfil my needs perfectly if I had it. I'd say just get the stuff you can get the best deal on, you can't go far wrong but getting the chainring size right is critical. I see so many people barely using the smaller cogs on the rear yet they have a big ass chainring and end up spoiling the lower end.
  15. I've recently just been trying to get more involved in the local scene, photographing more often and networking with more people. This job came about from someone I've recently been working with gaining a new sponsor who requires some media content. I have been told about folks shooting races and posting on roots and rain, I am tempted to give a few a try but I'd approach it in a more creative way rather than standing in the same spot all day with a tripod getting the same shot. Mostly though it's been a case of putting myself out there a bit more. Maybe we should shoot together sometime.
