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.

Thetford Thursday


Anyone for Thetford tonight? I'm working near Great Yarmouth today so the bike is already in the van. If anyone is free to get there early, I can probably do a full ride in daylight, rather than waiting until 8pm.

I'll keep checking back here during the day for replies.

Re: Thetford Thursday

I am keen

But can only make the regular time

Re: Thetford Thursday

Forgot it was Thetford so only the regular time for me.

I could be persuaded to 'go local' if there were other takers....
