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.

It's CHHRRRISSSTMASSSS!!

Ho ho ho.

A few of us have spoken about the Christmas dinner recently and in order to accommodate as many of us as possible in a suitable venue I'd like to suggest making a start on organising things. I want to avoid inadvertently pissing some people off with changes of day etc so I suggest pissing everyone off by having the dinner on a Friday. That way hangovers are not a significant problem for most unless you have small children or are planning to do a Parkrun at silly o'clock the next day.

Since Richard is buggering off, once he's finished lying on his back, I don't mind taking the organising on. I'm not good at democracy but by opening suggestion is Friday 8th December.

Any takers or alternative views?
