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: OMM

Is this the swimming event Tom entered last year?

Re: OMM

That's the one Paul. Different water in the Forest of Dean. River Wye, should go over his head this time.

Re: OMM

I've canoed down the River Wye before.

No further comment.

Re: OMM

I have now got this into the wife's calendar - who else is up for it.

Mark T this is in your favoured neck of the woods I believe....

Re: OMM

I might.

Re: OMM

Yes, should be able to play again. This time I'll wear my triathlon suit though.

Re: OMM

It’s my not-very-local local area. Not so sure about all that map reading stuff though. If I’m around, I’ll come say hello.
