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.

Isla bike for my son?

Hi all,
Just checking on the off chance to see if anyone has an Isla bike for sale? Looking for the cnoc 14? He is 3 1/2 & has been riding a balance bike for a 1yr (courtesy of Paul Lyons) & I rented him a pedal bike this week at Center Parcs & he picked it up straight away hence the need to upgrade.

Cheers
GN :)

Re: Isla bike for my son?

There is a facebook group for buying and selling islabikes which is quite good.

Might be selling a CNOC 16 soon, but would need to get a large Beinn 20 for Eddie so that Helen could go on Eddie's inherited from Duncan small Beinn 20.

Thanks Claire, ended up getting one of eBay in the end
