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.

Green Man tonight

Anyone else planning to work on a New Years resolution today?

Re: Green Man tonight

Planning on working off a few calories this evening assuming it is not precipitating heavily at 7pm. I think Paul S, Adrian and possibly Riaan are coming out to play as well.

Re: Green Man tonight

Yep I am planning on brining my waterproofs

Re: Green Man tonight

Yes I will be going along too, rain, snow, apocalypse - I will be there!

Btw Paul S. Did you know that you don't really need mudguards around here, just wear some overshorts that you can take off before the pub and you will be just fine :-)

Re: Green Man tonight

Still at work, so not for me tonight
