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.

Another White Swan - Quy

so it's the second White Swan of the week, anyone planning to ride tonight?

Re: Another White Swan - Quy

Yes, great way to cap off White Swan Week for 2016

Re: Another White Swan - Quy

From 7pm I am due to be at the Four Went Ways RAB marshalling a Time Trial. From there I hope to road it to the TT's HQ at Westerly Waterless VH for a quick cuppa and cake(s) then over to Quy. I reckon I'll get there for 9:45 pm.

Hopefully I'll not get too soggy....but if the MTB venue changes, please can Pat text me, thanks.

Hope to see you lot later

Re: Another White Swan - Quy

Off to the peak district tomorrow morning. Don't want to be starting a 3 day weekend in wet shorts.

Re: Another White Swan - Quy

It's a tad damp at the moment but should be 'dry' later. Plan to be out but no pub tonight as I have a 4 o'clock start tomorrow. Damp shorts or not.

Re: Another White Swan - Quy

Yep should be out, thunderstorms at 6pm and then cloudy & dry thereafter :)

Re: Another White Swan - Quy

Yes.

Re: Another White Swan - Quy

Re: Another White Swan - Quy

Cannot believe I did 47 miles on the roads this evening and stayed dry. Even while standing at the 4WW RAB, those on the east side got wet, we on the west side stayed dry .

Roll on summer

Re: Another White Swan - Quy

so anyone know if Pete F made it home last night or is he still having a "Lock In" at the White Swan?

Re: Another White Swan - Quy

Fortunately the landlord had an angle grinder....

White Swan Week well and truly capped off with a return visit to the Quy venue on Sunday Lunchtime.

The roast sunday lunch was well worth the ride there

For the patriotic Real Ale fan there was this!
