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.

Last night's route to Reach

Here's our route from last night...

Thanks to all you southerners for sticking with it to the bitter end, or should that be The Dyke's End?

Cheers,

Richard

Looks good - wish I'd made it back from London a bit earlier. Were there as many punctures on the dyke as the first time you ran this route?

Nah, only skin punctures (OWW!)

It's not the same route as last time, although we finished with the same section along the dyke, which included herding some sheep in the semi-darkness this time! Thankfully, no punctures.
