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.

Fendango - sat 24th - 1 week

Hola!

1 week until Fendango - some info here http://www.fenduro.com/p/fendango.html

If planning to join and want to know more get in touch. A good route this year - a lot easier on the eyes (and soul) than last year's bleakshow.

Great day out Adrian, thanks. You under-delivered on the shittiness front but I won't grumble about that. Marcel got the full benefit of your route with his tyre choice I think.

Re: Fendango - sat 24th - 1 week

I'll second Tony on that - brilliant route, and the best mud anyone could wish for. Well done Adrian - Note to self: make sure I am out of the country Feb 23rd next year:slightly_smiling_face:

Re: Fendango - sat 24th - 1 week

tyre choice and inappropriate mud-guard, but good leg-work to push through the mud:grimacing: . Live and learn. I'll be set up better next time! Thanks!

Greetings from North of Newcastle :)
Fendango was a great day out. Quite shitty enough for me. A great route and great vibe. Many Thanks Adrian.

Looking forward to the Fenduro Sept 29

Hi Adrian,.
Thanks...pfffffffff
If it hadn't of been for the pub & Eco's quality breakfast sausage(ahem) you would have succeded in your quest to make us have a really crap day. Better luck next year....
You could always end up at The three horse shoes in Comberton? Then & only then will you have beaten us physically, mentally & wtf are we doing here..ingly.
