  • 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.

Re: Thanks our Claire

What is this? An almost coherent post from Duncan? Dunno what a dut is (do I want to?) but all the other words make sense!
Cheers Duncan and all was a fun night. Bit sleepy now.

Re: Thanks our Claire

Thanks for organising everything Claire. As Duncan says a good venue and a very pleasant evening.

Re: Thanks our Claire

Thank you party planner extraordinaire, anyone who could keep us lot in vague order needs a dedicated award!
Great night - slightly sore head

Re: Thanks our Claire

Thanks for organising Claire! Great logistical skills there.

And thanks everyone for a great night talking b0llocks and drinking beer!

Re: Thanks our Claire

Hi mtb-fellows and Claire

Another ditto for thanks to Claire - a great night, impeccably organised. Kudos to the Maypole, too - a good room, good food and a range of taps...

I wish I'd been sitting with you, Riaan - where I was, we were drinking bollocks and talking beer.

And an echo of Tasty Tom's comment - well done to all the award winners for providing the highlights (or something close to it) for another year on the trails!

Yours in cycling
