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.

Re: Longbow Tonight

Not out tonight. Got through Mayhem with only minor bruising and scrapes (unlike the trees that I maimed), but am now in full 'self preservation mode' before I go away.
Have fun.

Re: Longbow Tonight

Great ride, thanks Pasty. I did manage to fall off on my way home.....there was a ditch and stingers inlvolved !

Re: Longbow Tonight

My pleasure.
