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.

Carpenter's Arms

Hi All,

I'm back from holiday now so looking forward to spending the evening cycling with the CAMMTB posse, albeit regrettably not in Yosemite.

Anyone else out? We could PRETEND it's Yosemite, of course; I think I may felt-tip an image of the Mighty Half Dome on my riding glasses, unless Rick's out, of course.

Re: Carpenter's Arms

You ride at the front Pasty and the rest of us can see the full dome. How's the Californian tan?

I'll be out by the way.

Re: Carpenter's Arms

i'll be out.
maybe you can bring a projector and show us the holiday picks.

Re: Carpenter's Arms

Wish I could join you guys tonight but I'm "Off games" at the mo. (Post viral fatigue apparently). Hopefully out next Thurs though.

Re: Carpenter's Arms

Will there be a choice of projectors from your Camelbak, Pat?

Re: Carpenter's Arms


I'm out tonight, aiming not to fall off onto my not-yet-healed right elbow again!
