  • 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.

Royal Oak, Barrritun tonight

Anyone out for a pootle to Gods very own village of choice?

Re: Royal Oak, Barrritun tonight

I'll be out this eve Duncan. I had my first ride out last week and thoroughly enjoyed it despite the slight mishap I had on Fleame Dyke 😣

Re: Royal Oak, Barrritun tonight

I am partial to a pootle so count me in

Re: Royal Oak, Barrritun tonight

Not out tonight as my legs haven't forgiven me for Dusk 'til Dawn yet, and also I don't currently own a helmet that doesn't have a large crack in it (note to self try not to fall off so much).

However, I am looking forward to the next three rides all of which end at that fine pub near to Claire's house. Thank you Runs List Fairy.

Re: Royal Oak, Barrritun tonight

Not on the runs list I've sent you and Tom!?!

Re: Royal Oak, Barrritun tonight

I am also a little tired from Dusk til Dawn but I will look forward to Thursday's ride to the Six Bells, thank you Runs List Hacker.

Re: Royal Oak, Barrritun tonight

Why you're welcome Paul and Claire. I thought you deserved some local rides after your monumental dusk til dawn efforts

You are both truly awesome. Well apart from the falling off Paul.

Re: Royal Oak, Barrritun tonight

On the clearly misguided understanding that this thread was something to do with tonight's ride, I thought I might pop out. Riding in from Barrington...
