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.

Anyone for Fulbourn?

Anyone planning on riding tonight to blow off a few cobwebs and maybe some Christmas pudding?

Re: Anyone for Fulbourn?

Riding tonight, when I could be inside watching sh*t TV, playing monopoly, doing a 1000 piece jigsaw with my step father and father in law...... I'll be there even if its raining.

Re: Anyone for Fulbourn?

had been planning on riding but have caught a pastyesque illness so see you all next week

Re: Anyone for Fulbourn?

It'll be pretty bad then, Paul. Poor you. Keep warm and hydrated, take mild analgesics.

As for me, I plan to bring my cold out with me tonight, unless it's really pi$$ing down.

Re: Anyone for Fulbourn?

I've eaten far too many mince pies, too much turkey, drunk no where near enough, spent the day in town going round the sales.....that I didn't even know I was going to see, been rained on, blown all over the place and then had to do the food shopping.

I wouldn't miss it for the world, count me in for a lardy ride.

Re: Anyone for Fulbourn?

Now feeling a bit crap - thumping headache, unsteadiness, gippy tummy... Either Paul's given me his lurgie just by posting or it's a delayed hangover.

Given that and the almost inconsequential forecast of rain, I think that Mother Nature is telling me to stay in and take it easy. So I'll sit and play Monopoly, do a 1000 piece jigsaw and watch sh*t TV with Eco's step-father and father-in-law instead. (Page 35, I think, Tony.)

So I'll wish you all a Happy New Year and drink to your good, if damp, health with the Margarita that my wife just poured. Cheers!
