  • 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.

Hairy Hounds tonight

Anyone out tonight? Worth making a trip (IMO) as this fine hostelry is closing its doors on October 28th

Re: Hairy Hounds tonight

Just been informed R is going to be back by 6pm so yes, I'm out.
Hi Pete, Fancy a local ride if know one else posts?

Re: Hairy Hounds tonight

Hi Duncan - if Tuesday night was anything to go by there should be plenty of takers. But if not, yes!

I've just received a free pint offer via email. Hopefully will use it tonight

Re: Hairy Hounds tonight

I bet she'll love beer vouchers instead of cash

Re: Hairy Hounds tonight

I'll be out tonight.


Re: Hairy Hounds tonight

I should be out.

Don't think Pasty or Cliff are coming. Lightweights.

Re: Hairy Hounds tonight

not going to make it either im afraid.

for some stupid reason i have set a PB in swimming and running this week ahead of the Fenduro and i'm dead on my feet.

also doing my good samaritan job for the day and going to take the piss out of pasty ....i mean drop off a turbo trainer for him to keep some fitness in the coming weeks.

Enjoy the pub, the ride, the company but stay off the floor and trees. you know that Stafford thug lives out that way and may sprinkle some more slippery mud where you least expect it.

Re: Hairy Hounds tonight

Of course part of the problem might be they are not so lightweight...

Not out tonight fettling ahead of the fenduro

Re: Hairy Hounds tonight
