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.

Re: Balsham tonight

I'll be along

Re: Balsham tonight

Not for me tonight - have had my legs ripped off in a two up training session this morning.
Fortunately there was a pit stop at the QH Newton, from which I am now recovering.

Enjoyed the Fenduro btw, and still got a good time in the next mornings 30TT. Must have had just the right amount of carbo loading with that beer and pizza

Re: Balsham tonight

too late home tonight, will try to make it out next week, the week of the 50th
