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 Swan

Anyone out tonight? Or are you all put off? (not wanting to be too slow, or too fast....?)

Is anyone planning to park up at Quy and ride in to the start? I think a departure time of 19:00 should be in order

Re: White Swan

I'm hoping to make it out but work may intervene...

Paul

(I won't be parking at Quy first, whatever!)

Re: White Swan

Nope... not going to make it out.

Have a good one!

Re: White Swan

Nope it'll be Thursday at the Hoops for me carrying extra weight now. Maybe that's the answer, Andrew should wear a 50 kg back pack or just get married and have kids like the rest of us that should do it.

Re: White Swan

Maybe you could lend Andrew a child to put in his backpack, Snapper? That might kill at least two birds with one stone

Hope to see you Thursday...
