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.

Thursday - Swaffham Bulbeck

Hi All,

I'm planning on riding tonight, but I may be a tad on the late side. Will do my best not to be. (Work things, I'm afraid.)

It's my 'birthday ride' tonight (50 on Sunday.)

PT

Re: Thursday - Swaffham Bulbeck

I will also be riding - any thoughts on a route?

Re: Thursday - Swaffham Bulbeck

Il be out for the first time! Will you look out for me?
I'm on a matt black 456 carbon.

Re: Thursday - Swaffham Bulbeck

I'll be out. No route in mind, perhaps I'll look at a map.

Re: Thursday - Swaffham Bulbeck

I should be out tonight!

So Pasty when you say you may be late....does this mean later than your normally late arrival?
