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.

Ploughing a lone furrow...

What a miserable day!
I hope to see some of you later for a gentle pootle to the pub, washed down with some Autumn cheer(s).

Roman Road > Fulbourn > Wilbraham > Bottisham > Quy Fen?

Any takers?

Re: Ploughing a lone furrow...

hi, guys, ta for waiting last night while I kept trying to seal my tyre-got me home without losing any more air & still hard this morning-bladdy miracle that!
got home, saw the washing machine open so bunged the kit in----------------hot towel wash---not dared try it on yet-anyone got an Action Man they want a cycling outfit for?
I Blame Lyons-dragged me all the way home at silly-speed-poor old legs were just a blur-either that or the rather good Fireside!!
