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.

White Fox, Horseton

Hmmmmm....

Weather looks like it will get progressively damper this evening with light showers.

I have a coat so I'm prepared to risk it. Anyone else out?

So, two epics in a week - only two miles less than Tuesday for me. Good route - shame about the crashes and punctures and having too much on on Friday to stop at the pub...

Re: White Fox, Horseton

I clocked 33.5 miles including my variation between Melbourn and Fowlmere.

Left leg and shoulder stiff and sore this am. Bacon butty helped.
