  • 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 Eve - The Lord Byron

so as it is christmas eve, and i'm going to be a bit busy next week, i'm planning to ride tomorrow.

anyone else want to join me?

Re: Christmas Eve - The Lord Byron

Stuck in Geneva/Jura mountains so not out this eve.
Have a very merry Christmas boys and girls.... Ho Ho Hoe

Re: Christmas Eve - The Lord Byron

I won't be riding tonight, but I'm pondering joining you at the pub at least. Mind if I drag my wife along? I'll warn her beforehand about subjects like nutscaping which... pop up... from time to time.

I'm pondering riding forth into the Somme-like conditions tomorrow some time. Any takers? I'm afraid it won't be a crisp white Christmas ride, as we've seen from photos from Simon and Co. in previous years... :-)

See Paul? I don't just lurk on Facebook. Sometimes I lurk on the forum too!


Re: Christmas Eve - The Lord Byron

@Duncan, time for a fatbike then?

Re: Christmas Eve - The Lord Byron

Yes, am at moment thinking of turning the mariachi into a 27.5+ for up north bike packing duties.

Re: Christmas Eve - The Lord Byron

Could be a good idea.
No other takers so far, so I will keep the ride short to be at the pub for 9:00 to 9:30 then a swift half and home to wrap the presents and prepare the banquet for tomorrow.
