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.

Fenduro 2 - late september, save the date innit

Fenduro fenthusiasts! It is happening again (yay....). A shorter route, more segments, more gloriousness, more vegan stuff, more MEGA ADFENTURE. So why not plan to come along, Showcase your fengineering skills, drink some local ale and chat more bollocks than you usually do.

Some pre-event emails / sign up info will be sent around in May(ish) - but why not block out that weekend now?

Will soon go to the polls on whether saturday or sunday preferred for the big efent. If saturday then we can ramp up the Fenduro Disco with Fenz radio. It actually exists and pumps out some pretty mean #techno http://www.fenz.co.uk/

Re: Fenduro 2 - late september, save the date innit

Date is saved. I was going to scrap 23rd/24th September but am now happy not to have to.

Re: Fenduro 2 - late september, save the date innit

I might join. As long as you promise that it won't be fun.

Re: Fenduro 2 - late september, save the date innit

Ah "not fun" is a tough promise to keep, this year's course has a stage with over 12 turns on! I can promise it will be generally disappointing. Is that enough to tempt you?
