DISCLAIMER. MOUNTAIN BIKING CAN BE DANGEROUS. YOU JOIN US AT YOUR OWN RISK.

SAFETY BRIEFING.

  • Wear a helmet. Despite recent advances in medical science, brains still cannot be mended nor replaced.
  • Wear gloves or mitts. Hands often hit the ground first. Cuts and grazes invite infection and a hospital visit.
  • Wear eye protection, it only takes a twig or thorn to lose an eye. Crud catchers are a good idea in mucky weather.
  • When downhilling, for your own protection, allow plenty of space behind the rider in front.
  • Bring a bare minimum emergency tool kit and a spare inner tube.
  • Breakdowns are a bore. Plan not to have any by ensuring your bike is in perfect working order.
  • Punctures are also tedious. You can minimise them by fitting latex tubes, slime tubes or running tubeless tyres.

Pub stops

Well I thought I'd take a chance and head to the Green Man this evening hoping to meet either the cyclists with a drinking problem, or drinkers with a cycling problem.

But alas I bring you disturbing news of a faction within our ranks that have deserted the way of the beer and merely do flybys of pubs and don't stop. This is most concerning and I feel I have to bring it to the attention of the Runs List Coven!

Anyway it's 10:45 and I've reafirmed my my belief in the way of the beer and it's time to head for home. I hope to see those that still follow the way of the beer on Thursday!

Cheers,

Jonathon

Re: Pub stops

Sorry Jon our drinking habit got the better of us & we took an early stop at the Queens head to save a few boring road miles. Bit of a confusing evening all round I think-mind you the beer was good there!
