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.

Offroad to Wigan Pier - RUNSLIST CONFUSION!

For those that care about such things, George (no comma) Orwell was a writer. The Chequers, Orwell is a boozer to which some of you may want to ride on Thursday night.

Hope this info is useful.

Lots of love,

Is the Paris Hilton out of the question for a ride?

Re: Offroad to Wigan Pier - RUNSLIST CONFUSION!

So who was George Babraham?? I must be bored - I've just spent half an hour googling him and he never seems to have existed...

I do know that Hoops Barton had a brother who claimed to be a spy and only ever took one big jump to escape from stuff...

I'll get me coat.

Re: Offroad to Wigan Pier - RUNSLIST CONFUSION!

I'd ride Paris Hilton (obviously only if it were an option....)

Re: Offroad to Wigan Pier - RUNSLIST CONFUSION!

Furthermore, what about Rose Stapleford? And that famous local, frostbitten exhibitionist "Blue-Balls" Grantchester?

Re: Offroad to Wigan Pier - RUNSLIST CONFUSION!

Aaron Houndz, the American-Austrian huntsman?

I haven't seen the twins, Roy (and) Al Oak for a while either...
