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.

WEEKEND OF MTB ORIENTEERING IN YORKSHIRE

You know you want to.

A 'big Adventure' but with hills, over 2 days and based at a pub. What's not to like.

17 - 18 September

Who's up for it? Camping, beer and bikes.

Re: WEEKEND OF MTB ORIENTEERING IN YORKSHIRE

Almost certainly YES. I haven't checked my calendar yet, but it can just fit in.

Looks good, up near my grandads so could combine with a nice visit.

It does clash with proposed Fenduro date but that isn't set in stone yet, could postpone by a week.

Wonderful

Same day as the 'ard Mors enduro sadly. Keen for future similar events

Re: WEEKEND OF MTB ORIENTEERING IN YORKSHIRE

Tempting, very tempting Tony! I know the pub at Cropton, I've camped in the garden for their November beer festival in the past, with permission of course :0)

I'll give it some thought, might be over-stretching things, going to the Pyrenees the weekend after.

So, Pasty is not allowed out to play and Paul is playing kiddies games instead. I've booked the event but at the moment it looks like I'll be on me Jack Jones. Is anyone interested in joining me? Barry...?
