CyclingTips Digest: Gravel Bike vs Mountain Bike, E-bikes vs Gravel Bikes, and Lego Bikes
@VFreehd: If you guys haven't yet, check out the trails Evergreen built near Darrington. Some of the best I've ridden in Washington. Get some buds and shuttle up to ride showcase showdown, preferably in the wet. Good times will be had.

Video: Remy Metailler Nose Manuals Down Squamish's Longest Slab
@remymetailler: Remy, totally random questions. I like the look of the Camelback you are wearing in this video. Which model is it? Also it looks like you have additional pockets/attachments in the front on both shoulder straps. Are those from Camelback as well? I don't see those included on any of the bike hydration packs on their website. Thanks in advance.

This is a good reminder for me to demo as many bikes as I can before I finally buy a new one. Thanks

New Zealand Health Minister Criticized for Mountain Biking During Lockdown
@jclnv: Hey I'm sorry to hear that, I can see how it must feel pointless there. I'm hoping this will stay in the cities and be over before you ever see it where you are. It does sound like the younger serious cases are mostly in people with pre-existing conditions based on what we've heard from other parts of the world. It's only a few cases that I know of directly, but we were all surprised when two younger ED staff, both very fit with no prior medical problems, were admitted to the ICU, one here and another at a nearby hospital. We all suddenly felt like none of us are safe. I'm not kidding when I say we all checked how much life insurance coverage we had. But as you can see, I'm just talking about small numbers we're seeing directly. Why most but not all people are asymptomatic isn't clear. It's frustrating to be honest. That's why I was serious when I said thanks to you for posting the video by a respected epidemiologist whose job is to make sense of the bigger picture. We're all trying to make sense of this.

New Zealand Health Minister Criticized for Mountain Biking During Lockdown
@chasintrails: Yes, that is because all hospitals in the Seattle area have been planning ahead and are dedicating space for the expected peak, which is projected to be in 2 weeks. Our hospital just designated another entire floor for COVID patients only. We are also being much stricter on admission criteria for non-COVID problems to keep space available for the expected increase. I too hope it doesn't happen, but we're preparing.

@jclnv: I should add that the reasons he gives for the worse outcomes in Italy are not specific to Italy. We have a similar situation here in the U.S in terms of underlying co-morbidities and the limited capacity of our ICU's. My hospital is not doing what they reportedly did in Italy and admit patients with mild symptoms. We are only admitting those with severe symptoms. Others are being told to go home and quarantine themselves. Yet our ICU is already full and our projected peak of COVID cases is not for a couple more weeks. We actually had a COVID patient die due to respiratory failure sitting in our ER waiting room the other day, so maybe we are not admitting enough.

New Zealand Health Minister Criticized for Mountain Biking During Lockdown
@jclnv: That was a good video, thanks for posting it. I agree with everything he is saying. He does agree with current lockdown strategies, but warns that we have limited data at this point and have to be ready to adjust our approach as our understanding evolves. He warns against influence by other biases including political agendas, media, etc. I can assure you that the professional medical community are exactly on this page. We base what we do on the data at hand and it is often incomplete. But yes, minimizing health risk is our #1 objective. Sometimes this can be heavy-handed and in retrospect seen as over-reaching. Your concerns about the impact on economy and the society at large if this goes on much longer are real and I'm personally very worried too. It should be part of the discussion.
