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.

campanology in a straight jacket

anyone else out for a paddle tonight?

Re: campanology in a straight jacket

Possibly. If I can find my wellies and if daughter can sort herself out for teenage goth party without the need of me and my wheels.

Re: campanology in a straight jacket

Yep, I'll be there with new boy Steve.

Note to self - affix mudguards, wear jacket and sou'wester, breathe through snorkel...

Why do goths need wheels? I thought it was all to do with pale makeup, spiky hair and studded leather? Purely in the interests of scientific research, I put 'goths and wheels' into YouTube, and here's what I found

Re: campanology in a straight jacket

Hi all, hoping to be out. Should be a character building evening, and at last no dust....

Re: campanology in a straight jacket

Character building... hmmm... no harm in that I guess. I'll be out.
