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: Three Horseshoes Stapleford

Have to scrub tonight - now at vets with 2 dogs about to vomit up rat poison. Alll being well

Re: Three Horseshoes Stapleford

How are the dogs? Or was it you that took the rat poison?

Re: Three Horseshoes Stapleford

Thanks Tom,

Dogs currently fine, on tablets for 2 weeks now, blood tests next Tuesday to check that coagulation is good. I was charged £54 odd when I left, and thought that was cheap......Clare got an email this am to say account was not up to date when I left and that will be another £189 . (Gasp!)
