  • 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.

Christmas Meal Date - Doodle Poll

Hi All,

I've started a Doodle Poll to determine the favourite date for the Christmas Meal this year.

The choices are the 15th or the 17th December. The URL is below so please get voting!



Re: Christmas Meal Date - Doodle Poll

Any chance of some more dates Pasty? You have only put that you can go on the Thursday 17th?! So for you that is one date.

Thursday 17th is the only date in the whole of December I can't make.

Re: Christmas Meal Date - Doodle Poll

However - it is the only date in December I CAN make!

Re: Christmas Meal Date - Doodle Poll

Hi Claire,

I'm pretty sure that both dates are there and, having checked the poll, I can see that you've voted for the Tuesday.

Any more problems, please let me know.



Re: Christmas Meal Date - Doodle Poll

Yeah I just thought it was a bit weird that you put up two dates, and then only said you could make one of them?

Is this a vote which you would prefer or a say which you can make?

As every time I have used one of these polls, you put down which dates you can make (usually more than one) and you see which date everyone can make?

Does that make sense?

Re: Christmas Meal Date - Doodle Poll

Also I thought maybe if we also voted for the week before, we might find a day that most people could make.

Re: Christmas Meal Date - Doodle Poll


I can put up an alternative, but at the moment it's favourite date only.

So... we could do a poll which says "what dates can you make?" and another which says "and which is your favourite date?"

I could put up a Doodle poll to see which is the best way to ask the question.

What do you think?


Re: Christmas Meal Date - Doodle Poll

I think it should be "What dates can you make?" - as that way we would choose the date that most people can make.

And also several people have now filled it in like that as there's nothing stopping you.

Re: Christmas Meal Date - Doodle Poll

Done - added to the text in the blurb.
