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.

Paging the Runslist Coven

Dear Coven

It's looking iffy for my being able to lead the Bartlow ride on July 6th as I'm travelling back from Birmingham that afternoon. If all goes to plan I can probably meet everyone else at the top of the Roman Road a bit before 8 pm but if the trains run late then someone else will have to lead the route.

What about swapping it with the Thursday ride?

Paul

Re: Paging the Runslist Coven

OK by me Paul,

Just need to check that the White Horse at Oakington is open on a Tuesday - website doesn't say if it is or not.

If not, swap for the following Tuesday.
