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.

Thursday 25th who's out?

Can't remember what the destination pub is tonight but I've got a thirst on.

Who's out tonight?

(Is it the Vole's Anus?)

I'll be out and it's The White Swat tonight, like the White Swan but with more flies.

I'm not cos we are having our sheep sheared tonight. It's cost me a bottle of gin so far, but I am making up for it with a lunch in the Tickell. Have a great ride, the weather is lovely here. 😊

Re: Thursday 25th who's out?


Yep, planning to ride. Taking a night off from the beer festival (but not the beer!)

Hello fellow Americans

Tess and I are going to join you at the pub around 9:45. Hoping they have Citra on tap today but if not maybe I will be adventurous and try another ale.

If I recall correctly, the White Swan run this time last year was mostly spent hiding from a rainstorm under the A14, to then get absolutely soaked by spray from the ground anyway.

Lovely stuff.

Re: Thursday 25th who's out?

Yes, me.

Re: Thursday 25th who's out?

Not this evening, too much work before we go away on Saturday.
