  • 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.

Leaving do next Tues 19th

Hi late notice but planning my last ride next Tuesday for those who can make it. Wanted to propose maybe going for a curry if people can cope with the change in plan from the runs list. (I know it upsets Adrian).

Possibly Tamarind in Teversham (with a shorter ride first)

Re: Leaving do next Tues 19th

Cant come :(

Re: Leaving do next Tues 19th

Hi Claire

Yes, count me and Alison in, please! Can't beat a curry after a 9 mph ride!


Re: Leaving do next Tues 19th

Hi Claire,
Will be there for the food but R is going to be late back that eve so not sure about ride until I can arrange baby sitting.
Is Dr Beeching going?

Re: Leaving do next Tues 19th

Dr Beeching is coming for a curry but not the ride as he no longer has a mountain bike.

Re: Leaving do next Tues 19th

I'll be there, but more into the riding than the curry (but might be tempted by a bhargi !)

Re: Leaving do next Tues 19th

Yes please--Mmmmmm--curry-

Re: Leaving do next Tues 19th

Can now make the ride

Re: Leaving do next Tues 19th

I'm planning to be out tonight. Any idea what time we'll be at the curry place?

Re: Leaving do next Tues 19th

9 o'clock on the dot - or we won't get any dinner!

Probably best if we leave Brookside pronto as well, so that we do at least SOME riding...
