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.

Peak District trail guide - Dark Peak

Anyone have a copy of the Peak District Mountain Biking 'Dark Peak Trails' guide book, by Jon Barton ? If so, would you be willing to lend it to me for this weekend ? I'm going up on Friday with my brother, camping in Edale.

Richard,
I used that guide just be warned!... ie, go through the green metal gate, at some time has been replaced by a wooden one.Its so easy to miss those markers,I found the map not up to date on several occasions but then again some of you guys are posh with your GPS.
