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.

Bell, Balsham/Chestnut Tree, West Wratting

Sadly, I'm not able to ride on Tuesday, but can I recommend a venue switch from Balsham to West Wratting?
The route will be very similar, but the welcome from the landlord will be a whole lot better (from recent experience).
I rode past the Chestnut Tree on Saturday morning, and the landlord is really looking forward to seeing you/us.
It's downhill(ish) all the way home!

Sounds good to me - I'm hoping to be out tomorrow.

Tell them from me in the Chestnut Tree that they should get Ananta's Thai food back as it was great!!!

Re: Bell, Balsham/Chestnut Tree, West Wratting

I'm hoping to tag along. 'fraid I can't offer an opinion on either of the pub-options though!
