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.

Waypoints for Thursday 14th

As promised here is a list of the waypoints included in the 'Big Adventure' on Thursday 14th. These are given as 8 digit OS grid reference (first 4 digits = eastings, 2nd 4 digits = northings) I will try and produce a map with these on but it willl be a low resolution map so I recommend that you bring a paper version of the map - mark the waypoints on if you wish. I will announce the destination pub and the scores for each waypoint closer to the start time. For the newbies to this event - find your way to as many waypoints as possible to collect points, collect bonus points as directed on the evening and make your way to the pub before the deadline or start losing those hard-earned points.

Use the forum to pair up or make your teams of 2 on the evening.
